Ok value for the money

Fairways were in good shape, course was not crowded, and groups in front allowed playing through. Greens were still rough from aeration, did not hold true lines and bounced a lot. Would like to see the greens in good shape for once, and then I would consider it one of the go to courses in the area.

Fun and reasonable

Course in good condition though because of rain they hadn't blown clippings, so we had a blower following us. A little disconcerting, but a one time event. Greens a little slow, but in good shape. Staff helpful and friendly.

Great course

A must play. We played the crossing and it was as advertised. The course was challenging but fairways are wide enough for my inconsistent driver. The greens are in good shape and the speed consistent. I will play this course again.

Would not recommend this course - while it goes in order making it easy to get through the whole course looks like it was an after thought. It literally is wedged in between homes . I would not golf this course again or move in that neighborhood. Course is too tight and there is know room for error.

Spend your money somewhere else

This is a one-and-never-again for me and my friend. I'm sure the staff is trying hard, but this course is awful. They should bulldoze it and start over. If we hadn't played on a GolfNow Tee Time, we would have asked for our money back after the first 3 holes. After your approach hits a green, don't check the green for ballmarks; instead, check your ball for greenmarks. At least 3 of the holes on the Back Nine are unplayable, due to slope against the dog-leg turn, very little grass and huge elevation changes. The last hole is a joke. I would not play here again if I were offered a free round. I can say only one positive comment: at least the bunkers had decent sand in them. But this course stinks. Save your money for another course and play one you will want to play again, certainly NOT this sad pretender. If this were my home course, I would take up tennis.

Scenic course. Greens too fast!

Loved the course layout but the greens were ridiculously fast. An uphill putt would turn around and come back at you. Downhill putts could not be stroked lightly enough to stop near the hole. It was early in the season and the grass was not really growing good yet. Nice course though!

Love this course. A little tight on some fairways, but manageable. Heavy debris after heavy fallen leaves, hard to find ball off fairway.

Early in season some greens a little rough. Needs some tender loving care ex. ball washers,. They did have lots of works crews cleaning up some areas of course. Should be good to play later in sason.
