Poor staff, very poor maintinence
Played this course before, but recently have noticed very low effort towards maintinence from the staff and manager. On this occasion, was met by hostility from the staff member in charge (bad day???). Overall, the players I was with as well as myself were off put by the poor maintinence of the course (bunkers were old and the sand had clearly not been updated in many years, was like hitting off of a rock) and the poor demeanor of the staff. Course is nothing special, fairways are indistinguishable from the rough and the greens are not of high quality. Sad to see a course that was once a pleasure to play on reduced to a run down "warm-up" course. If the manager would put just a little money into maintaing and updating the course, this could be a nice venue for the area. Unfortunately, I won't be returning for another round, there are much better offerings within the area.
Improved but needs some additional care
I have lived near the course for 38 years and the greens now are the best they have ever been. My improvements would be to restore and add to the sand bunkers and bring back the long downhill tee shot on the 9th hole. This is an executive course, and changing the 215 yard 4th to a par 4 and the 400 yard 6th to a par 5 was not necessary. The dogleg 6th par 4 was one of the most challenging holes in the area. Decent executive course, could be a great one with a few changes and some investment. Hopefully the current manager is working toward this end.
