Excellent Course To Play

Old style course, lots of trees, narrow fairways, have to place the ball. Play this course a few times a year as I like to play different courses. Lots of wildlife, makes for a nice tranquil setting. This course is definitely worth playing.

Enjoyable Round

The staff was outstanding. My partner was late and they fit us in when he arrived. They were so accommodating and understanding. The course was in real great shape for this time year. There are a lot of trees that line the fairways. A very enjoyable round!

Great Track

Great shape as usual. Pace of play was good and staff is great especially the gals in the restaurant. Would add to "off course amenities" but with the Virus stuff, hard to single this out. Great guys in pro shop and range as well.

The Starter

I booked my round on GolfNow. Tee time 11:16. Prepaid. I showed up 25 minutes before my tee time. When I arrived at the starter, he asked my name. When I gave it to him he acted exasperated. I asked if there was a problem. He said I was late for my time. I questioned how this could be if I was standing there before my time. He began to rudely scold me for not being earlier. I let him know that there is nothing noted when I booked that I needed to be “earlier” than I was. He then again, rudely, stated that he always comes to his time an hour early so he could practice. I’m assuming he wanted his job. And perhaps he gets some free golf as a part of his compensation. I get that being a starter can be challenging at times. But there is no excuse for his rudeness. I WILL play here again. I will probably show up a little earlier. But I will NOT respect a person who represents this course family by disrespecting their guests!

Vacation

On vacation this week my third round in 4 days.
Nice fun course with lots of trees. Stay in the fairway and it’s an easy day. In the trees and it’s a different story.

Busy Popular Golf Course -- Challenging Layout

Played in very warm 88 degree weather. Always a challenging layout. Greens quick but a little bumpy and need to be "rolled." Greens may end up being a concern by late summer in a few months. Too much play during COVID-19, as this course never closed. Still a lot of play. We teed off at 12:25 p.m. and it a reasonable 3 hours and 55 minutes to play, but we had to wait on every shot on 16 of the 18 holes because the course was very crowded. Tee to green in excellent condition. But due to so much play, the greens look a little worn.
