Challenging and fun for a good price

Very friendly staff who accommodate golfers' needs readily. The course has a good layout and is quite challenging, hence lots of fun (or frustration, both of which may urge you to come back). A few greens are damaged and need repairing.

Below average

The course is in bad condition. The tee boxes need to be mowed shorter .. there were only blue and white tee boxes available and some of the blues weren’t event set up. The greens have corrosion on almost every green and the bunkers have weeds everywhere.. the biggest perk is the course is never very busy so there is not much waiting.. years ago I used to be able to play the course for $8 hot deals.. they need to bring those back and should not be charging the same as other courses in the area.

Par Line

Good course for the $$. Main concern was the forward tee boxes - they were in bad shape and it seems no work is done to maintain them.
Other than that, course was in good shape.

Still in poor shape

Have played their in the past and course was not good. It has not improved as greens are still in poor condition, tee boxes not very good. Only two tee boxes open, the whites and the ladies. Do not know where senior tees are at. Removing all bunkers so it is a mess around the greens.

Go somewhere else

The tee boxes are just plots of ground with tee markers thrown down. The greens have large amounts of damage. The bunkers are no existent and not taken care of. Best to avoid this course and go somewhere else. I feel I overpaid based on the condition of the course.

Bad course

This place is terrible. No tee markers, and the tees haven't been mowed for a long time. Big bare spots on the greens. Bunkers totally uncared for. And the older guy in the pro shop is nasty.

Needs some TLC

I never really complain about course conditions because let’s be honest. You’re outside golfing with friends having a great time. Today was my 10th round this year and by far the worst. The course is usually a bit ragged but today was tough. The tee boxes are the length of the rough. Each green was in some sort of bad condition. Half of the sand traps were “under repair.” I get that we are under some trying times right now but you think they would take care of simple tasks like mowing tee boxes or taking care of the sand traps. I also get raising prices to try and make up some of the money they lost but for the price paid, the course needs to be better kept. I will always recommend Par Line to friends and play there from time to time but by far the worst kept course I’ve played this year.

Early Play is Great Play

Tees off at 8:52 and was finished by 11:45. It was great and luckily, no balls lost in water. Highly recommend this course, eclectically for beginners.

Very dissapointed

I Understand things have changed socially, ,however the course should maintain mowing the grass, on the tee boxes specifically. Teeing off out of the rough ( what the tee boxes were like) is
not pleasurable. Greens should be renamed yellows, ,i'm assuming due to some type of disease which has worm like patters on many yellows (greens )..I could go on, however feel there is no need to do so...I'm trying to save the golfers out there the same disappointment...Hit em straight !!

1st time out this year

If you want to play a quick round during the week, play here. My son and I had a noon tee time and finished at 3pm. Each person has their own cart due to new COVID rules and the golf course keeps their new golf carts clean.

Disappointing

We played here today. Paid for 18 and only did 9. Course was not in good shape, granted it has been raining but it was in way better condition in the height of summer. The gentleman behind the counter was clearly not happy I had purchased our round through the app and not from the course. Even to the point of pulling a guilt trip that he didnt make any money on transaction while he was charging my card for the difference in the price so we could play 45 minutes before our tee time. To try to make me feel bad about booking through an app he is using to increase his business? If you feel that strongly dont use Golf Now it's simple and dont make your clientele wait while you lecture them on you losing money. Very disappointing.

Great place to play for $30

There are power lines through a few holes, but the course was wide open and easy enough for my beginner fiancé to play. We will definitely be back to play it again.

NEEDS WORK

The course is in pretty rough shape. Tee boxes were like hitting out of rough. They need to be mowed badly! Green speeds were inconsistent, with many rough spots. Bunkers were filled with mounds of dirt. Not a bad layout, just needs some serious attention.

Dry and hard but well maintained

Fun round with the deal making it worth the money. Saw other golfers but no one pushed us or held us up. Dry hard surface gave lots of roll and hard to hold greens but a fun day. Staff super polite and friendly.

Forgiving course for a beginner

The fairways are nice and wide, forgiving for some of my drives. The grounds were very hard and fast, so take that into shot consideration.

You (still) get what you pay for!

It was a good course to get out and swing the clubs!

No frills or potted plants! Bring your own water.

Putting was interesting on some holes...

Condition

Meat block. Fairways are hard as rocks. Greens have more weeds and crabgrass trying to grow than the neighbors yard. Need a hammer to set your tee in the tee boxes.
