Good deal but not in the best shape anymore

Good price if you book online with a midday tee time. Pace of play is good as it’s usually not real busy but things are shaggy on the course and starting to get run down. If you play after it rains bring lots of bug spray the mosquitoes are ferocious!

I'll be back

Pleasant experience from tee to green. Tee boxes all have nice grass and easy to get tee in the ground which may not mean much to you but we need hammer and nail at our course to get the process started. All the fairways had nice grass and the greens were excellent. I even checked on membership and their rates beat my course by quite a bit giving it serious consideration. I think all negative reviews have a direct reflection on the skill sets because this is not necessarily an easy golf course to play visually it is very tight but more room than meets the eye. Fun Course to play.

Good for the money

You get what you pay for and this is no different. I didn't expect a lot for 18 holes w/ a cart at $24. One of the staff was downright rude, but aside from that there wasn't any other issue with the staff. The course is good for beginners or anyone looking to get a cheap round of golf in.

Bring your A game

Since this is the only course open in the area it had to do. The fairway grass is very-very short so picking the ball with the club is a must. The greens were pretty good, just slow. Most likely to save them due to the heat.

Double charged

The course is fine and great to play my problem is my card got charged by Golfnow which was fine but when I checked my statement the course charged me again for the round actually they charged me $10.00 more than Golfnow. How do I get refunded ??

Incompetent Staff and Management

I arrived at the course early (~20 minutes prior to my tee time) and tried to check in but was told I could only check in within 10 minutes of my tee time, which I thought was understandable because they were probably trying to get groups to tee off at their respective times. I eventually checked in 5 minutes prior to my tee time, picked up my cart, and drove to the first teebox (blue tees) to find 6-8 carts parked in line waiting to tee off. I asked the golfers when their tee times were and found they were all later than mine (how were they allowed to check in?). None let me go ahead of them. There was no ranger at the first tee checking people in. I parked my cart at the blue tees and decided to wait in line behind the aforementioned golfers. Suddenly, 4 more carts drive around my cart and pull up to the white tees and get out of their cart and establish that they're in line before me. I approached them and they acted beligerent. About 10 minutes later, someone working at the Pro Shop came by to check on something unrelated. I tried speaking to him to let him know what was happening and he told me he was busy and couldn't help. I eventually just pulled my cart up to the white tees since I didn't want people to continue cutting in line and I eventually tee'd off at 1215pm (75 minutes past my scheduled tee time and ~95 minutes after I arrived to the course).

This course is completely mismanaged.

Good course, good price

Good course, staff friendly. When it's windy, watch out!!! Great to walk or ride. All the sand traps are out of commission, so more like ground under repair. Greens are fairly fast. Nice bar for a drink afterwards.

Great Day

On time tee time, course moved reasonably well despite heavy play. Greens and tees were good. Good value and would recommend this track.

Rude Cashier

The guy at the cashier seriously lacks social skills. I’ve been there 3 times and every time I’ve been there he’s there; and he’s always in a bad mood. I take my son to practice in different courses, and I keep hoping someone else will be at the desk. Perhaps management should consider the lady in the kitchen area to take the front desk.

Was very surprised that we had to pay cart fee. First time this happened there. Didn’t realize there had been a change. Doubt we will go that far to play there again.

5 some

Wife and i have golf here a few times and the pace of play has always been ok....except yesterday. We were behind a group of 5 and we had to wait at every hole. Not just a few minutes....on one hole we wait 10 mins.
The problem was a five some....it slows down play but it takes away from other people behind them....they were not keeping up to the group ahead of them and did not allow us to play thru. The group behind us stop play after waiting to long on the 10th tee.
We will play here again but will ask not to be behind a 5 some.
