What a mess!!

I usually love playing this course but not today! The fairways are just terrible as they are not enforcing their cart path only Rule. The greens were pretty good and the tees were fine but anything in between was a mess!

Great course for value

Went for a quick 9 holes on the par 3, ended up staying to play the 9 hole lake course as well.
Greens were in EXCELLENT shape. Especially for how wet it has been lately.

For the price, this was the best day of golf I have ever had.

Deserves a play

I really liked the layout and elevation changes. I have some walking issues and the cart path only requirement made it difficult even though I had a cart. The biggest disappointment for me was that the greens were wet and never whisked even when I started at 11 am and no rain. Would be willing to try again on a dry day and see how greens were cared for.

Chaotic play

Appears they do not adhere to tee times nor to players cutting in from the Par 3 course. Sprinkler was on when we got to first tee so had to tee off from fairway. Lots of muddy holes and bare spots. But good value for 9 holes. You get what you pay for.

Staff concerns?

In recent years, I have usually had good times and experiences on the 9 hole lake course. As a moderate skilled player, the relatively short and open fairways have been fun to play. We have usually been able to find good deals and bargains using golf now and other on line discounts. Unfortunately, today I encountered an extremely unfriendly staff member in the pro shop. Her rudeness and overall her lack of professionalism will likely keep me away for some time. Disappointing experience.

Best shape in a while!!!

I have been playing this course for around four years now since I moved here from Chicago and I can honestly say the greens have never looked so good! the fairways are really scruffy but if they would just mow them this could be one of the nicest courses in the area actually!

Rain out

Rained last 24 hours. Called the golf course and they said they were open but you’d have to walk it and boots would be needed.
Sent cancellation to GolfNow 90 minutes before reserved time.
And now I get charged and get a survey. Very sad that your promises don’t match your actions.

Fun to work on midrange game

I really enjoy this nine hole par three course very challenging to try to hit the greens every time also great to work on your mid range game if you need help. If you plan to play this course pretty much bring a nine iron pitching wedge and you’re putting LOL.

Nice to coarse for getting back on your game or to work on things

I really enjoy playing this course when I wanna work on a few aspects of my game. I really enjoy their short nine hole 27 parcourse and I also enjoy working on my longer range game on a nine hole Lakeside course. I always get my moneys worth although it could be a little less expensive at times. You could catch some deals on Golfnow or even Groupon. Overall I’ve played here a half a dozen times never any really complaints. Courses up kept very well although today the greens were a little slow LOL!

Enjoyable Course

I've enjoyed playing both the par 3 and the 9 hole championship course many times since I moved into the Richmond area about nine years ago. The course is very accessible to any one living in the Richmond area and when you are in a rush to get somewhere else, you can play in about two hours. The course is well maintained and offers a variety of moderately challenging holes in a beautiful natural environment. I played there with my 14-year old grandson recently, and we were able to play in about two hours. He just started golf a couple of years ago, and adjusted to this new course (for him) very easily.

Rude Staff Member

So we had 3 players and asked for extra cart key so all would be safe, key given no problem- then After round staff member came out to us returning carts with an attitude and advised that this was no longer acceptable.

When we replied asking why were we not informed upon check in ; he didn’t respond and said he had sent out an email. Hello, who did he send email to and also, typically don’t review emails while playing golf...

Course was not crowded at all, no excuse for being rude to customers !

Not the best course condition but still a great value

I've played here twice and both times it was a great value, easy to get a time and not too crowded. The only negative I have is they weren't manning the first tee at all on a Saturday morning (I get it with COVID but no sense of direction from the proshop either). Course had a lot of sandy/dirt fairways, tee boxes and some greens but for the price, it's still a great deal.

Cheap and fun golf

I’ve played both the lakes course and the par3. Both are fun and very affordable to play. Laid back atmosphere and a decent course layout. Fairways and teeboxes are essentially dirt and weeds, but it’s also early season and there’s been a good amount of rain recently. The greens are in great condition. With the specials available you can walk 9 holes and hit a bucket of balls for $20. Can’t beat that.
