Course is improving. Greens recently punched but recovering well. Course improvement is slow but coming along nicely. You get what you pay for and they are priced fairly for what they offer.
Fun and shorter course. The greens need a little attention but aren’t terrible.
It’s in good shape and drains well.
Pro Shop and Restaurant Staff both very nice and helpful. The starter was very knowledgeable and gave me some information about the property. The pin position was #3 and he told me almost everything breaks to the right and he was correct. Had the place to myself basically and only caught a twosome because I was hurrying to avoid the rain. The course is in an older neighborhood with houses lining every hole I believe. I noticed a lot of plexiglass sunrooms! The cart path goes through the neighborhood and on one occasion I would have been flat ran over because cars do not slow down at all . Some of the tee boxes and greens were rough.
Will be back!
Definitely on the right track with course conditioning! Great experience!
Greens not in good shape right now
The greens aren’t in great shape, but do show real potential. The grass that is healthy rolls great, there just isn’t much of it, severely degrading scoring.
Course needs work!
Calling this a Championship course is a stretch. It may have been in its day, but it is a long way from that today. When you arrive at the street entrance, you have the allusion that it just might be a nice course - but, I think the only grass they water is by the street entrance. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The smell of pine oh on the course was great on a beautiful day. And, I enjoyed the layout of the course - the course is laid out in a mature neighborhood. I think it has good potential to be a nice course and worthy of play - if they get it in shape. The greens on the course were very poor - in fact, for the most part you could say they weren’t greens at all.
We played under a Golf Now “hot deal” - even at the price we paid, it wasn’t a deal. If you are just visiting the area, I would suggest finding another course to play. If you live in the area - it might be worth checking out if they fix the greens.
A fairly easy course to play. There is water on only one hole. Almost all fairways are lined with trees and underbrush. The fairways are beautiful but the greens are in poor shape.
This is a nice course that winds through an interesting neighborhood.
It had rained the night before so there were a lot of muddy conditions. The greens were really in bad shape. I've never been here before but played other nearby courses and all hd better greens than this course. Seriously, I play more than 30 courses a year and never have seen greens so lacking in grass.
Today the greens were not in good condition. The only issue we have had on this course is players cutting in front of us on the back 9. To play 9 holes easily is to play the first 3 holes, then jump to #13 and play in to the clubhouse. With that type of play, those of us playing 18 have groups jump in. Today we were playing right along, then came to a screeching halt. The course needs to figure out what to do about this, it is very aggravating.
Fairways very thin of grass. And greens had very little to no grass on them. Should be a beautiful challanging course, but was really dissatisfied
Very poor condition
Have played this course 3-4 times in past year, conditions have gotten worse each time. When dry the fairways aren’t to bad but being in Southwest AL rain is a constant so they need much better drainage. The greens are bad granite we only played six holes but I plugged the green half of those. 3 greens were literally half mud. Staff was friendly but course was unplayable.
A lot of strategic placement
I like the course layout. Not very much water or sand but the hills can send your ball in the wrong direction if you are not careful with your placement. Greens were really bad but enjoyed the people running it.
Greens dead and muddy
The greens on 4 holes were simply unplayable with dead "grass" and mud. 4 more were in very bad condition and the rest were not good at all. With golf now it was 25 bucks, but if I had paid 51 dollars full price, I would have tried to get my money back.
