The course is well cared for, fairly open fairways for the average golfer, yet challenging enough for everyone.

Slow day

Pace of play was very slow and at one stage we were three groups waiting on the same tee.
Considering the amount of rain we had the course was in good shape although we did get a few plugged lies on the fairway.
As a first time player at the course I found it quite challenging where to lay up and there are many blind shots.
It might be easier the second time around but I think there are more interesting courses in the area to explore.

Favorite Course

This golf course is absolutely awesome to play on. Very creative course and very nice greens. This course is maintained very well. It has now become my favorite course to play on. They have a cool boardwalk that the cart rides on from hole to hole and the course creates a very peaceful atmosphere to enjoy a round of golf.

Before you go ...

I recommend it because it’s good for the cost. I have regularly found this course to be less expensive than others in the area. It’s a nice layout but it’s often in rough shape. The greens run well when they are in good shape, but there are too many ball marks and dried out areas to make the greens run true all the time. There are way too many places in the middle of fairways or rough areas that should be well maintained that are ground under repair. A word of warning about tee selection too. Almost all of the extra yardage for black tees is on holes with forced carries or one par 3 that’s 220 with little room for error. Check the course with a GPS app before you decide.

Slow

Threesome in front of me was not very good or smart. Waited on every hole for green. To clear. Even par fives. I waited on every shot.
Quit after 13 holes. I could not take it any longer.

Really Solid Layout

The back nine is fun and challenging with the exception of the artificial island tee box on the long par 5. The front nine is pretty wide open and tough to lose a ball on. Bunkers and rough were well maintained but there were diseased spots on multiple fairways and greens. I personally thought the greens were tough to read properly .

The amenities are pretty basic. I don't like how they have the practice green all the way between #1 tee and #2 green. I paid $46 on Sunday morning which was $6 too much.

Ladies League

Pace was hampered by being the first one off after the ladies. Course has a few issues with what appears to be winter kill or disease. Greens were recently aerated so a bit bumpy but for fifteen bucks I can't complain. I will in the future check courses directly to see if league play conflicts with Golfnow tee times. Senior Tees are way to short. Played the white and was more comfortable, Group behind played the gold and felt pressed to hurry because the gold box would be 50 to 100 yards difference and a few the difference was over 200 so they would be played as 4/5 pars.
I will play here again on a different day and rate the course accordingly.

Excellent value

Found this course on GolfNow and according to the reviews it was worth trying. We were not dissapointed! The course is in excellent shape... the greens , even though they had been plugged and rolled, played near normal.
The scorecard gave accurate distancing to the first hazard for each hole which proved to be handy on most holes. The layout was fair to most levels of play and challenging enough to make the complete round interesting and enjoyable. I will definitely be returning for more rounds of golf at this course and have recommended to several friends already!
