Poor course management!

The course is in good condition, except the greens, which is the #1 factor in a real round of golf! This time of year the aeration should be minimally visible, but these had holes and sand everywhere, ccurate putting was impossible. Our biggest issue though was the starter telling us to go to the range and hit some balls, and had lined up several carts of a group on tee #1 though they had a later tee time than ours, we just skipped 1 and in driving to 2 tee we talked to a pair of golfers who said the management does this frequently! I won't be back!

Poor Condition

The fairways were in poor condition but it was right after a night of very heavy rain. The greens were a mess and I’m sure some of that was the rain also. Plenty of bare spots and bumpy and very difficult to putt on. I have played here before and like the course but it needs some work quickly.

Improving

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 course.

Fun and shorter course. The greens need a little attention but aren’t terrible.
It’s in good shape and drains well.

Friendly Staff

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.

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.
