Good looking greens and not too bad fairways. A little tough with the pace but it worked this day.

5.5 hour round

They definitely need to either space golfers out or have Marshalls that can move slower players along. We waited on every shot for all 18 holes.

Great tune up

Played this course off ,& on for years. Even though it is a Holiday week they seem less concerned about the pace of play. Today it was 5hrs +. They just keep sending more golfers out to satisfy completed tee times. A couple of Marshall's could help greatly. We waited on every hole today and was able to see gaps between groups and some open holes.

Decent course

Great place to work on a few things. In decent shape. Pace of play wasn’t the greatest but still a good round. I’ll play there again.

Punched greens

I was not aware that the greens had been recently punched. Never saw on Golf Now website or mentioned by the guy who checked us in. The slow play was probably the reason I would think twice about playing there again.

Crappie course

No notification that the course was being punched and the back 9 being played twice. Golf now did not notify me nor the course till I checked in. Very disappointed in the fairway condition only the greens were really playable. I don’t think I will be back!

I like the course, but......

This is the second time I played the course where it took ALMOST 6 HOURS to play. I do like the track, but I just cannot take that much time to play golf. Sorry but if I am not playing early morning weekday golf, this course is probably not my cup of tea.

Mission Snails

This course has the promise to be a hidden gem. However, the fairways are horrible on most holes and the greens are fair. The dress code is not enforced so you get hackers in jeans that bring a 12 pack of beer and spray the ball all over the place. The marshals are great for clearing aluminum cans but do nothing for pace of play. They need to limit tee times by one or two less an hour, push the 4th hole white tee box back with the blues to help. The logo for the course is a snail so pack a lunch if you play here and maybe dinner.

Good value. Poorly maintained

Good for the price. They can use a lawnmower from time to time to clean up the fairway.

Help this course

Place of the tee boxes on several holes is questionable , especially “18”, fairways need work as well as some of the greens. Despite the little things, it’s a good course and I did enjoy myself.

Bad bad bad all around

Booked a 12:45 tee time. Showed up at about 12:05 and checked in. The guy in the pro shop was not too friendly. As I’m paying he mentions “we’re running a little behind today”. I realized it was cart path only (which would have been nice to note on the reservation GolfNow) but I figured it would be CP only due to rain anyway, so I wasn’t surprised. Pro shop says “by the time we get to your tee time, hopefully less than 30 mins behind.” It sounded like they’d run out of carts and overbooked the day. Carts trickled in and groups went out 10-15 mins apart (so I’m thinking at least evenly spread groups will keep up pace.) 12:45 comes and goes. We finally get to the tee box at 1:40. We think we’re finally off!.. and with sunset at 5:40, we might finish. No chance to play 1-18... the backup starts on the first par 3, #3, and it doesn’t stop the rest of the 9. It took a full 3 hours to finish the front 9. Backed up 1-2 groups on every tee, not just the par 3’s. Thankfully we decided to just play the front 9 again, which we were able to do in about 1:30 since everyone had cleared off the front by 4:45 when we started again. Thankfully got in a full 18, albeit the front x2.
I have played this course many times over the years and it’s no secret it’s slow pace of play. Even the cart cards say it’s a 4:30 pace. But, this was unbelievably slow.

The course was in ok shape for having just gotten so much rain. Lots of mud which was to be expected. The greens were surprisingly fast, but very inconsistent and bumpy. The layout is also kind of crummy. Holes 4 and 5 require a draw iron off the tee, hole 6 another shot requiring a big draw, and hole 8 is a blind landing zone - especially if you’re playing into the sunset!
I know you get what you pay for so I’m not expecting private club level course, but the mismanagement of the groups, timing, and carts was ridiculous. I have played plenty of $40 rounds that do a much better job of running the show smoothly. Probably won’t be back anymore. Better deals and courses out there.
