Played 18 with my son, from the Sr. Tees. Very enjoyable round. Course in great shape, but cart path only due to days of rain. Challenging layout, with a number of blind tee shots. Scenic, hilly course. Nice staff and amenities. Recommend.
Hit them straight because this is definitely a dhotmakers course. A very unique layout which demands precision on over half of the holes. Has some straight forward holes. Worth playing.
Second time playing course; its nothing remarkable. Course conditions were not very good...greens were patchy /poorly maintained, and fairways were long and shaggy. The layout is also very quirky, especially holes 2 thru 6, very tight! Plus, no clear direction to the next hole. Several holes play short off tee, and can easily go long and over hit if you're unfamiliar with layout. Had cheap HotDeal round, but I would never pay more than $25 for this track.
This was my first time playing this course and I'll be back. This was my first time out this year and went with my wife and we both had a great time. The greens were a little beat up, but not too bad. The staff was friendly as were the other players. The course wasn't crowded at all. We only played 9 and the person at the pro shop said we could play the back 9 if wanted to, because it is less challenging, so that is what we did. I look forward to my next round here.
Greens were aerated today; not that big of a deal it just added a couple of strokes to my final score. Pace of play was terrible I started off alone and caught another single that started about 20 mins before me, but he was slowed by another single who was walking and would not let him play through. No excuse for this and the staff needs to address this. Overall the course was in decent shape and the staff was friendly.
Can't believe they are even open
I've played this course a few times. In its early years it was great and I loved it. Well so much has changed. I went after work to play 9 today, they tried to charge me for 18. They then said you have to play the front 9. But holes 2,5,6,7 were all being aerated to me that means there are a few holes in the ground but it should be playable. Well not here, there was no grass at all! The fairway was dirt and mud and unplayable! I cannot believe they actually charged me and had me go off and play. Do not go here until maybe next year.
The supplied reviews are outdated,and were accurate in 2013. Since 2013 there has been a lot of work done to bring the course back to it's potential. I also labored around this course in 2013. Since then the crabgrass has been eliminated in the fairways and the rough. The traps were full of pebbles. That problem has been eliminated. The greens and fairways are in excellent condition.The only drawback about the course is that the tees are undersized, causing them to get beat up as the season wears on. My advice to readers of these reviews is to disregard those from 2013. Go out there and enjoy the course , the views and the price which are the lowest in the area.
3 Very Tough Holes
I liked this course and as an amatuer golfer, I found it fun and challenging. The 4th, 5th & 6th holes were the hardest holes on the course. They were very short dog leg holes that were tough to even think about hitting the green in regulation. I lost about 5 balls on these holes. You almost have to play these holes to see how tough and odd they are. I have played tricky courses before, but these three holes (especially the 5th) were the strangest I have ever seen. You are hitting blind most of the holes. Nice views!!!
Good Value but Poor Fairways on the Front Nine
Staff was very friendly and helpful. Nice course layout but the fairways and greens were in rough shape. The front nine was mostly mud but playable. Back nine was in great shape. All in all worth the $16 bucks each for 18 and a cart. If your looking to knock it around and have a good time, this is your place.
Course Needs Help
The course layout was pretty good. It had some unique hole designs I have never come across on another course. However, that where the praise ends. Tee boxes were hard as a rock, and covered in crab grass. Fairways were terrible, there were some that had no grass on them at all, they were just dirt that was hard as concrete. Some greens were under maintenance.and it was annoying to have to avoid the maintenance equipment while chipping/ putting. This is a course I will not visit again.
Hot Deal Worth that only.
Front 9 in bad shape. Had to roll all balls in the fairway to get on some form of grass. Back 9 was in better shape. Got a hot deal and it was worth the $18 but that is all I would want to pay.
Good course seen better days
Usually a nice bargain. Course was in rough shape. Many burnt spots on greens, fairways. Mandatory egg sandwich buy from the snack shop.
Really two 9 hole courses. Front nine is thru the woods and very tough. Leave your driver in the bag. Back nine is more open.
Really two 9 hole courses. Front nine is mostly thru the woods and very tough. Leave your driver in the bag. You've got to keep the ball in play off the tee with smart shots. Not a long course Kept wanting to go back and "play that hole over". Back nine is more open, although #10 is a tough par 3 with water on right. You can use your driver on the back 9.
Great course, a bunch of blind fairways, and elevation changes. My only complaint was the rough was really long, and it was often difficult to find your ball only a few feet off of the fairway.
Course has many diverse and challenging holes, the greens were in good shape.
The fairways were in good condition. The first cut was a tad high, lost a few balls that should have been find-able. The location of the 17th tee box was confusing. I played in the early afternoon on a Wednesday and i had the course virually to myself so pace of play was not a factor. Overall the course is above average for the value.
they crammed 18 holes where a nice 9 hole layout should be
Wow its like hitting from the rough on sum tee boxes ,bare spots n brown grass on greens luckily i only paid 25.00 . Course needs some serious attention . i will never go to back till they make some changes
