Neglected but challenging

Holes are challenging. Having a cart would be good because there are a lot of hills. However, the cart fee is too high. The course is generally in poor shape. Tee boxes are not marked and are in very poor condition. There are no directions or maps to help navigate the course. Be prepared to lose a few balls.

There was trash everywhere. I don’t think they own a lawn mower.

Value oriented

Are there things about this course that could be improved? Yes.

Would it be fair to complain for $15, and an under-ten-minute drive? Not at all.

However... I'll delve.

There were no tee markers, and the tee boxes were in poor upkeep.

The fairways, while cut, were course grass. The roughs were... Well, I lost 3 balls just off the fairway.

Some of the greens we're in good condition. Some seemed to have been slowly healing from aeration long ago.

The bunkers should all probably be marked GUR.

All that said, it was a fun layout for an executive 9. And moderately challenging at times with how some of the trees forced your club selection and/or ball flight.

I would, and will definitely play here again.

For $15.

Greens need work

A nice meandering course.. Good value for the money spent. fairways were not well defined and greens were in need of some care. A couple of holes were in bad condition. I would go back and would refer a friend. Some signage to the next tee for firstime players would be beneficial.

Second tome out

This was our second time out and the course was a little bit better. But the tee boxes and greens are still uneven. My spouse said get over it and I did enjoy the day.

Awful

$20 for a cart for 2 people, kids all over the course who hop from hike to hole bc they see its open, not sure a cent has been put into the tee boxes for a couple years, and greens are carpet. Not worth the money for the headache you’ll get playing here.

First Covid time out

This is quite close to our downtown home, easy to get to and 9?holes seems right. There are carts for $10, but no pull carts. The tee boxes and greens are quite beaten up and will need a lot of work to get a reasonable result. The layout is challenging and fun. All I’m all we stopped counting and just had a good time.

tougher than the yardage says

A great little course to home your game on. Nine holes, no par four is longer than 340 but very, very challenging. A hilly layout with blind shots, undulating greens and lots of sand. Much more of a challenge than you would think.

Solid course, greens were a little rough, but they were just getting their bunkers done so I imagine they’re typically better.

One thing, they say $10-15 on here, but it’s $25 to walk 9 there. The pricing on here should be updated

Urban 9 holes with a very tight layout.

Bring a lot of golf balls. Tricky layout where (believe it or not) its hard to find the next tee box on at least 4 holes. Great value for the money. Tee boxes were all rough as were 3-4 of the greens. Very well kept tee to green. Odd feature: daycare affiliated with the course set up an afternoon activity on the 9th fairway in front of the green rendering the hole unplayable. Weird.

Awful

Carts are $20, kids are hopping around to whichever hole is open To play, leaving a line waiting behind them. Tee boxes and greens look like they haven’t had a cent put into them in a few years. Overall not worth the headache even for just $13.
