Narrow Narrow

The bad, we got of the Tee twenty minutes late. Waited three to five minutes on every tee and second shot. Two folks we played with are regulars and said that is the norm. The course is short and the front can be played from the whites with irons only. Hit it strait errant shots will most always cost you strokes. The greens are in good shape and a normal speed with devilish pin placements. The fairways are in good shape and I can tell you that most of the trees have grass under them. The bunkers need sand. This is an old style course we’re accuracy trumps distance. With the exception of a 187 yard par three, over a gully, up hill, into the wind the course is accessible. But be ready for a six hour round (counting the delay at the start). We played the afternoon shift so perhaps and early start would be better.

Great Course

The course was in excellent condition even after heavy rains during the night. The fairways are cut nicely and the grass on the rough was a little high making shots difficult to get out of. Pace of play was great until we caught the people in front of us then it became slow.

Everything but the weather

When you book a round the day after a night of tornado warnings and flood watches you might expect a wet course, wind and rain to go with it. You also take your medicine. All things considered though it was not a bad day. We will be back again.

February 8th

Rain was supposed to be done and out of here by 3 AM but wasn't. First 6/7 holes had on and off light drizzle. Course was soggy, was expected after all the rain we have had. Cart path only but still finished in under 4 hours. Finished before the wind picked up.

Great condition

This was the first time playing the course and I have to say it was in great shape. I’ve played many courses in the area, and this ranks with one of the best public courses

Another fast round

Another fast round, teed off about 8:10 and finished by 11:00 AM. A little chilly but dressed for it and no wind. Nice round.

Having played here before sort of knew what to expect. Cart path only as we have had a lot of rain. Round only took 3 hours.

Pleasant round for this time of the year.

Tee boxes, fairways and areas around the greens are all aerated and re-seeded-management is spending alot of time and money on this course. The cart paths could stand some attention. Nice people. Good value. I would definitely play this course again.

Fast round

Course is in pretty good shape for the end of the years especially with all the rain we have had.
Fast round under 3 1/2 hrs.

long time

It has been a very long time since I last played here. After a couple holes I remembered why...I just don't like the golf course. There are some good holes but not enough of them. The greens looked in good shape but they putted like on Velcro. Fairways and rough thin on grass but that is also the case of other area courses. There was an outing the day we played and we had the last tee time and out around the 6th hole there was the outing, right on our tail. Play moved but it was easily a 4 1/2 hour round. Not really a walking course, especially the back nine.

Gone downhill. Stay away.

I used to play this course all the time around five years ago, and played it for the first time since, and it may be the WORST value in golf.

The tee boxes had more sand and mud than grass. Despite all of the rain we’ve had recently, the fairways were hard and mostly burnt out.

As if that wasn’t bad enough, the fourth hole was closed so they could repave the cart path. We were never warned, and still paid full price.

From a layout that doesn’t reward quality shots, terrible conditions, and a slow pace, I can guarantee that I won’t be back.

Fast round

Paired with a course "regular" - had a good time - fast round 3 hrs 10 minutes. Course has some "dead spots" due to all the rain we have had but over all in good shape.
