Dry Times

The fairways and tee boxes are drying up and turning brown already and it’s only February! Obviously they aren’t watering the course. Such a pity. The course has an awesome location at the base of the mountain, wildlife abounds. Too bad the owners have let the course go to pot, but then they don’t care, they just want to replace the course with houses. Another golf course bites the dusk.

Terrible course experience

The course is in terrible shape and they closed the grill at 1:30 because the employee wanted to go home. This is unacceptable when there are golfers on the course.

Lots of potential

This course has a really nice layout and present a challenge for all levels of golfers. The greens were recently asserated and will be in great condition. The fairways and some of the sand traps could use a little TLC but the majority of them are in good playing condition. The court is long from the tips and has a reasonable number of obstacles. I suggest that they offer more hot deal tee times on golf now to introduce more players to this course. The mountain ranges in the distance and the different elevations add a beauty to the course..

Mud

Typically I wouldn’t complain about playing a round that cost me less than $20 with a cart but the course was in such bad shape that it took all the joy out of playing the game. It’s a shame because the layout of the course has so much potential.

First, the range balls were in such bad shape that it was impossible to tell how my ball was going to fly that day. The dimples were warm out on all the balls and I even had several range balls that were splitting open. I was afraid they were going to explode when I hit them.

The biggest disappointment was the course condition though. It was nearly impossible to find a good spot from the tea boxes to hit from. They were uneven and patchy. I ended up in the bunker several time around the greens and there was no sand in it. Instead, it was all mud. Literally mud. You would have thought there were heavy rains the the day before, but no. For whatever reason, the groundskeeper decided to flood the bunkers. There is no joy in steeping into a pool of mud and trying to hit a ball out of it.

The worst part of all, and keeping with theme of mud, was the conditions around the greens. They were soaked! I remember several times when taking a practice chip, that my club would just covered with mud. It was so bad that I had to go back to my cart to wipe the club off with a towel. Why would any sane person over water their course. At this point, you are doing more damage to the course than any good. Especially for a course that looks financially on the rocks, you are just wasting more money by overwatering the ground.

It’s a shame because this course has so much potential. The layout of the course looks fun but there was no joy in playing when it is in such bad condition. I hope they get new groundskeepers or management who can turn this place around.

i like it

I play here 10 times a year. always easy to get a tee time and i really like the course. most the time it plays fast but if slow you are on your own. No marshal and if you call them they just do nothing! I still like it just tee off early.

Promising but still needs work

Slow play, played behind group who was 2 holes back - No marshal around, this course can be better but is running on a shoestring budget. I go there because it is near the coast with a cool breeze, relatively inexpensive and just interesting enough to possibly have a good round of golf.

Nice day for golf!

Had a nice day at the course. Big drawback was the grass was being mowed and there were a lot of patches of cut grass al over. A couple of holes they had the sprinklers going (one was on the green and made putting an adventure). Overall a nice day though. I like playing this course, even though I lose a few balls.

It’s getting worse

This is the 2nd review and I have to be honest, this course is getting worse. Now, they don’t even bother cutting or rolling greens on a Sunday morning round. The entire course is soaked and barely any type of fairways to be found. Tee boxes are atrocious and every one of them has you hitting from a sidehill lie. I don’t think you can have a worse condition course. Maybe saw 1 or 2 workers and they were only watering more wet spots. Just break a dam and let it flood. It would be a better lake than a golf course.
