Nothing good to say

From the layout to the parking and finally the young arrogant staff and management, the place is really terrible. New management is unconcerned with your experience. Not gonna waste another minute. Just go somewhere else.

Nice course layout however very high grass on most tee boxes. Bunkers need more sand or at least raked.
Sand texture was very hard. Overall should be a $30-$35 greens fee

Don't waste your money!

Played in spring and the front nine is a mess. No real tees to speak of and the grass is very sparse. Back nine beautiful but that doesn't make up for the front. So peeved by the time you make the back nine you want to leave.

Country club is in the name only

As my title indicates I dislike places using the country club moniker when they're a former club and haven't maintained a resemblance of the type of care deserving of the name. Having gotten that off my chest, my review follows.

The layout was pretty good overall. Fairways were wider than the pictures suggested, so it played fair. Hole variety was good. I'd have liked a hole diagram as the tee boxes to help with many of the hidden doglegs and such, being my first time playing.

Condition wise, fairways were good, greens were average. Some ran faster than others, but met with your standard public course speed. The tee boxes needed some love. And the traps were the worst I've seen in years. Only one I saw was rakes and resembled sand, and some had rocks, and I don't mean pea sized pebbles. Golf ball sized rocks. Really irritates me that you ignore something so obvious.

The clubhouse was at one time a happening place. But much of the building seems closed off and parts of their vast outdoor patio, specifically the stairs, were rotting away. But they had a full staff serving quite a few folks but we only grabs some beers after nine, so no comments on the food.

In the end, we still enjoyed ourselves. The course really was entertaining, just poorly maintained and overpriced. I suspect their customer base is low when outside the holiday weekend so maybe there's few options. I've been on worse, but it's an average public course.

Enjoyable

Very typical of a "hills" course.. Many ups and downs. Cart not required but very helpful. Fairways were moderately tight Bunkers fit the course but the sand if large grained. Tees were well maintained but small so the some were chopped up.

The greens are large with many undulations. They are fair but with very large breaks.

Sixteenth hole has a spectatular view.

The round was slow (+ 4.5) due to a group in front that insisted on waiting until the green was c,ear becore they hit <150 yard drives.

Likely will play again on a return visit.
