They send people right after a tournament which makes the day to be around 6 hours. To me, this is not acceptable. Never coming back.

This review is purely for anyone looking to play on the weekend. Most public course play slow on Sat and Sun, but this course in particular is having some pace of play issues, likely because of the sheer volume of golfers. It took 3+ hours for the first 9, then when we got to the turn there were 12 people on the tee in front of us. Three of our foursome gave up and went home. Pace is fine during the week. Greens were nice.

The course is very dry.It need to be watered bad. Terrible lies in the middle of the fairway. The greens were very slow and lots of ball marks.Not worth the money. Stater put out a twosome in front of us on number 10, Play was already slow. I won’t be back soon.

I played this course many times 40 years ago when I grew up in the area. It has lost a lot of trees (but there's still plenty) and the bunkers aren't as deep as they used to be. The width of the fairways are generous and the greens are in very good shape Lots of uneven lies to challenge your shotmaking.. The new management is cutting out bad ares of grass all over the course where they're going to put in sod. It's a little unsightly but it doesn't really hinder play. Nice to see the effort instead of just trying to overwater dead grass. Pro shop is getting a remodel also. Overall a fun place to play.

The last time I had played this course was at least 15 years ago. When I played it last week I was pleased to see that the condition of the course was actually quite nice. No, this isn't Augusta, but it is an interesting layout with tree-lined fairways, and fairly small greens. There is plenty of grass in the medium-wide fairways, and the rough is not long, but it is thick. The greens are a bit long and bumpy, but for a relatively inexpensive public course, the overall conditions were above average. I will play this course again when I am in the area. I would like to give this course 3 1/2 stars, but they are getting the 4th star because of the friendly staff in the pro-shop and in the restaurant. The food was good too!

nice round, but chagrined to see five-somes AND singles scattered throughout. pace was erratic. course in great shape. greens soft, tough par 3's with sand in front of greens and pin placement directly behind them. no beverage cart, no bag drop, carts hemmed in by pylons everywhere, poor directional signage, no yardage marks on sprinklers, fun time and great round but could be so much better

Signs should be placed at the edge of every green to remind players to fix their ball divits. This should be in both English and Chinese (and Spanish if it fits). The greens would be so much better if ball divits were fixed.
