Nicely Designed Links Course
We started playing this course again a couple of years ago and were amazed at the improvements since we'd last played it over 10 years ago. Since the Casino took it over they have put serious effort into upgrades. We drive over a couple times a month from Eugene to play and have a great time. If you get on their email list they have a special which is emailed usually once a month: $39.00 for 18 and a cart with either a free lunch, a cap or a sleeve of Pro V's. Hard to beat that !
Better conditions since the casino purchased
I've played this course at least 10 times over the past 10 years. The Three Rivers Casino took over the maintenance and operations about 6 years ago. Since then the conditions are much better. It was designed by Bill Robinson, so those of you who know his courses probably love it or hate it. It has a few funky holes, which Bill is known for. It's rather short with tight fairways and several blind shots. Course knowledge really helps! It's a much different and design and experience than Sandpines, which is also in Florence, OR.
Don't waste your money or time.
Played in tournament. Mud for fairways. Greens ok. Shop staff stoically made one person pay for full cart and "settle up" with whoever decided to accompany; even if accompanying rider literally did not exist yet or have means (cash) to reimburse fully paying rider. Poor form. From course conditions to shop staff, poor all around.
Straight and narrow
Links style course with mostly straight and narrow holes. Excellent greens, but the fairways are mostly mud. The pace of play when we played was S-L-O-W because of a Ladies Club tournament. Make sure to check before getting a time. Also take plenty of Off as the mosquitoes will eat you up on the back nine. Very friendly staff in the pro shop.
