Aerification delayed, course probably hadn't been watered in 2 weeks, drives would roll forever (good) but greens wouldn't make a ball mark even if you dropped a ball from an airplane, but given the price, ok I guess.

Majority of tee boxes in which you want to use an iron it is difficult to find grass to hit off of. A lot of the Greens are bumpy and bald. If you just want to get out and play the price is good But the course is a little rough around the edges.

Poor management, in the past I have been asked if I paid or if I have checked in at the club house, very disrespectful woman who I tought she was just an employee but recently I noticed she is the manager. Very worry about customers paying than worry about the course condition.

Yesterday the tee box was very dirty and noticeably neglected with long grass and trash overflowing at 11am, probably trash from the day before, most of the golf ball cleaners are broken.

I have to say this course is in the worst condition of the Eny course I’ve ever played. During this time of year the winter rye in the summer Bermuda should mix to make a great playing atmosphere. The pro shop said they can courses in perfect condition. Absolutely ridiculous! After 18 holes your back is strained from all the bumps in couches throughout the fairway and rough. The green had absolutely no grass and your ball balance left and right making it impossible to score. At one point we had 15 people waiting on hole number four. The pro shop staff thought it it was funny when we expressed our concerns. Save your money and don’t make the mistake we made. Even the tea boxes had no grass we found ourselves breaking T after T trying tee up the ball. My friends and I will never return.

Played the course very often for several years in the past and stopped because it was just a dust bowl with limited care. Saw the 4 star rating and had to try it again. Have to admit the fairways were is much better condition than in the past. The greens are another story. I would not be surprised to find that someone had painted the dirt green. You could not stop an approach and putting was an adventure.

On the other hand, it was a bargain just to get a round of practice in ball striking.

Nice layout, greens were bout a 9.5 and were good. However, IF you could find the next tee box, it was sometimes tough to see the fairway that your supposed to hit because there wasn't much grass. They seriously needed a water truck to keep the dust down. No beverage cart,

Overall, the layout had possibilities, but the lack of grass and maintenance, plus theres no attire standards, you get the picture
