Below average

First and last time I play here. Tee boxes looked like rough, the fairway looked like rough and the rough was almost impossible. The fringe has a lip around the green on every hole and some of the white tees were behind the lady tees! I’m at high 80s to low 90s player and hated this course. I played it because it was a hot deal but I should have just gone to the range.

Horrible conditions

Greens good, but the compliments stop there. Fairways are an embarrassing combination of high uncut broadleaf grass, dandelion and other weeds. You could lose your ball in the fairway. Tee boxes uncut too. It sucked year but I gave it another shot today. Never again.

Very poor conditons

Other then the greens which were only in fair condition, I would have to say I don't think i have ever seen a course in that bad of condition. Crabgrass seemed to be the grass of ;choice on every fairway and there was a lot of it !! They need to shut this course down and do some serious course repair. I will not be back !!!

Poor condition

About the only positive thing I can say about this course is the greens were ok, fairways and tee boxes were horrible!! I never seen so much crabgrass on a golf course, they need to close it down and kill the crabgrass and reseed . Will never golf there again.

Terrible Condition and Course Does Not Have Current USGA Rating/Slope

In addition to this course being in terrible condition, it overdue for the mandatory USGA Course Rating required every 8 years. Without that rating USGA says scores for rounds played there can not be used for computation of a USGA Handicap. This course ignores the USGA prohibition of advertising a course rating and slope even though they are aware that a course rerating is long overdue. Ask them about this and you will get a story about how they plan to have the course rated "soon". Layout of this course is great, but no money is being spent to maintain it to even the most minimum of standards. Don't waste your money

Bring your long irons

A nice course overall, enjoyable layout. It is relatively long, the 2 ending holes are memorable long par 4s. Fairways were ratty but the greens were ok. I'll play again for a good price....

Overbooked

Cumberland had a tournament in the morning and then over booked tee times in the afternoon. Course is improving from last year when all the fairways were burnt out. Pace of play was slow.
