The pace was very slow. I have a group of three some in front of me, and the guy teaching a woman. She took 2 or 3 shots every times.

This is a muni track so you can't have high expectations. I was just happy it was easy to get a weekend tee time and the pace of play was average but moved reasonably well. Pros: Coffee shop is nice, decent menu and reasonable prices. Fees very reasonable for weekend play with cart. CONS: Greens extremely slow and shaggy, fairway and in play areas can be patchy producing poor lies, there's hard pan dirt where there should be grass in many of the fairway swails and gullies, sand traps are rarely if ever maintained or raked. If you keep it in play this course is still fun as the fairways present challenges due to their contours and hilling.

While the fairways could be in much better shape, the course holds up for a muni. Greens were in good condition and rolled pretty true - while the pace of play was very good for a Sunday afternoon. Tee boxes were a little banged up, and the patrons don't seem to fix their divots/ball marks - but what it is what it is.

I can't find right word to describe this.

I arrived at check in dest at 2:25 to check in for my tee time 2:42. A guy (his name is Davis) said "you can't go out until 3 PM because we had kid's tournment".

I said "oh my good, what's is going on??? this is not right".

He said, acutually yelled at me "what did I do???""

I was stunned and shocked.

My friend standing next to me was so upset (his name is terry) said to him "we did not mean that you did something wrong but you can't talk like that" He almost got into a fight with davis. And we said we wanted to talk to the maneger.

The guy working at check in dest (Davis again) said that "here is her business card you can call her"

We pick up the business card and tried to call the manager (her name is Loura I believe) but she didn't pick up the phone. Luckly She just stepped in the office with name badge so that I know that she was the maneger and could talk to her. And the guy (Davis) changed his attitude in front of manager.

This is not end of it...He said there was no reservation under my name at 2:42 from golf now. I had to show him the confrimation email on my phone.

We had to wait until all the kid's tournemnt team done and could go out arond 4 PM and played 9 holes...

I know the golf now is one of the best and reliable golf reservation site and I've been a customer for years.

Hoperly this will get to the managiment step and something like this will never happen again.

Sinscerely.

Course caters to golfers who don’t exercise course etiquette nor understand ready golf. Walkers and riders side-by-side who have no clue about pace of the game. Fivesomes, just unacceptable especially when some are walking and others riding!

The course presents some great challenges on nearly all approach shots in the small, tightly shaped and well protected greens.

Nearly all greens were elevated which penalized inaccurate shots.

While not the longest course, this was a true test of your all round skills and certainly a course that I will visit again soon.

The greenest course I have seen in some time. Overall conditioning was pretty good. The greens were tough with a lot of break and relatively small. Don't expect to improve your GIR percentage. Otherwise, a very enjoyable day out.

I have played this course many times over the years, but probably won't ever play this course again. Our Sunday 11:08 AM tee time turned into 5 1/2 hours of waiting on every single shot. There were several times when we arrived on a tee box to find we were the second group waiting to hit. This translated into a round of playing the first hole 18 times. Not golf. And the worst part was that there was NOT a marshal on the course, and the guy in the pro shop told me that 5 1/2 hours "IS NORMAL" for a weekend! It won't be normal for me, 'cause I won't be playing this course again.

I love the course and the staffs!

However last Sunday , they let 2 minors go out with out adult supervision to keep the pace and Golf etiquette be observed at round! Every one pays the green fee to enjoy a good Sunday Golf . They should learn little more about Golf etiquette first!!!
