usually good greens, I don't know what happened. Greens were horrible. Paid $15.00 each of us. I wouldn't pay over that. Their greens fee is outrageous on the weekends. Don't go unless you have a Golf Now coupon. Driving Range balls are bad. Club house needs to be updated about 20 years ago.

Overall the course was in good condition, other than the first fairway still closed for re-sodding and playing as a par-3. The greens were mowed adequately but a lot of weeds are growing into them. The bunkers do not have enough sand and play like they are dirt patches. This week the pace of play was quite slow compare to the time I played before. Overall it is a good course for the money.

Played as single from Gold tees. There's a significant difference between the whites and golds. The greens were in excellent condition & shots held well. Fairways were average to good condition- there were some bare spots which could be corrected easily, but were pretty much the same 2-3 years ago. Traps were average condition.

I did not care for the large cups cut in the greens, but they did not interfere with play to the regular cups.

There are very few places on the course where you can't recover from off-line shots. My handicap index is 17 and I scored 79- which is about right for a 107 slope.

Staff very friendly and helpful. Course was in descent shape with only a few greens chewed up. Overall since it was a 50% off hot deal, it was very very well worth the money. Normal green fees during summer is $41 and I think that is too much for their course. Plays great otherwise.

Right on the airport and next to Redstone Airbase, so enjoy the fighter jets practicing their touch landings and takeoffs! Good course to fine tune your game when you are shaking off the rust. Not a lot of trouble. Greens are in good shape, but they have two flags on each. One regular, one basketball hoop sized hole for extreme novices. It has been dry, so bring a hammer to get your tee into the ground. Looking forward to trying this again when we have had a bit more rain to soften things up. Cant complain about the low rate to play through GolfNow.com!

With lots of forgiveness in the form of wide and/or parallel fairways, you can spray the ball out of the box and still score. The staff is friendly and conversive, and conditions are improving. The poa anna shows up annually, but has all but disappeared and the greens are rolling nice. It'd be great if they would add some white sand to the bunkers as many are mostly Alabama clay powder. This place is in much better shape than Huntsville Municipal.

Ok, first course I have played in Huntsville, AL in 10 years. It is right next to the airport so you see and hear planes overhead every now and then. Not distracting more cool. The course had some rough spots that were under repair, but for the money it was a very nice course. Full length and the staff was fantastic. Could have used better signs at the turns but each T box was nicely labeled. Best advice - WALK. This is a very flat, small distance to the next T box kind of course. But they do not have pull carts so plan ahead.

This is a great course to get some early season rust off. Not too challenging and shouldn't lose many balls. They do allow groups of five which I'm not a fan of, especially early in the morning. Was stuck behind two of those groups. Made for a slower day.

The only reason we played this course was the 4 star ratings. The fairways were in terrible shape. The only reason I gave the overall rating 2, was because he greens were the only saving grace of this course.
