Fairways, oh my!!
The people and service at this place is top notch. But the course, especially the fairways were just awful. In and around the greens were perfect. You pay $50+ dollars on the weekend the course needs to be in better shape. If you’re repairing fairways and that many at one time then you should not be charged the full amount. It’s reality when you would rather be in the rough than the fairway. Once the fairways and there are many are repaired the course will be awesome, but you need to be upfront with your paying customers and you shouldn’t be charging the full amount for that crappy golf course.
Fun Course with Fast Greens
My friends and I were on vacation in Tennessee and were pleasantly surprised by this course.
The golf carts (often your first impression of a course) were really nice (appeared new with really comfortable seats). They also had water bottles and towels in the cart for each person.
There was no starter so the Pro Shop attendant told us to just go ahead and tee off. His only advice was stay out of the rough (that seems to be what every starter at a course tells you when you ask for advice but this time it was true because the rough was very thick).
The pace of play was good for most of the round (we really only had to wait on the 17th and 18th hole). My friend was annoyed that so many singles were playing (and being good golfers we always offered to let them play through which slowed our round a bit but we were still done in just over 4 hours). They really should have put singles together but my guess is that it was later in the afternoon and guys just showed up to play.
The course was in very good shape but that may be partly because they have a 90 degree rule (not just that day but we saw permanent signs stating 90 degree).
The real challenge of the course was the speed of the greens - really, really fast. It was hard to have your approach shot stay on the green which was surprising given how wet the fairways were from all the rain earlier in the week. So no roll in the fairways but the ball released too much on greens.
We played on a Monday afternoon so I can't speak for pace of play on the weekend but I would recommend this course based on the fun layout.
This course is a lot of fun to play. The layout is fair with very few holes with OB. Greens are always in great shape. Very walkable course. Practice facilities much improved with additional practice green. I do wish rates were a little lower.
A pleasant course to play but sometimes rather slow. They have rangers but the didn't expedite play. Took two hours and forty five minutes to play the front nine. Overall scenery nice but not much grass on the fairways this time of year.
Course is in good shape for winter. Also had an excellent Golf Now rate.
Club house is nice Staff is very nice Greens very nice Fairways cut to short Pace of play was horrible Older regulars need to understand golf edicut applies to them also $40.00 a round was to much for this course The cost and pace of play will keep us from returning.
This course has improved over the summer. First the good things, the fairways are green and in good shape, there are challenging holes (4th, 10th, 13th) and most of the holes are separated from the other holes by trees. Also, the people who play the course are always kind. The pace of play is good too. The first hole is pretty mediocre as are the 5th and 7th and 16th but the opening hole is the most generic. The greens could use some doctoring and there are some bare patches on the course still and the normal everyday price is too high. If you get a deal on it, the course is fun and quiet. If you are in the early evening you will see deer especially on the 11th fairway and the staff is great. It's not Augusta or Pine Valley but its definitely a step up from a municipal course. The burgers are good too.
Very nice course. Took a co-worker from out of town and he was very impressed with the course.
Great greens. Not the most difficult track. Fairways getting much better. Good value course
Greens where in good shape but slow. They must be keeping them long to not lose them. Most of the fairways are still showing damage or have areas under repair. Holes 5, 10, 11, 13 & 14 pretty much the whole fairways are ground under repair even though you can still play off them.
