Slow Slow Slow

It was a Saturday afternoon. Very slow play. Waited on every hole...sometimes there were 8 people waiting on a hole in front of us as we approached to tee off. No one was making sure things were kept moving. Hard to get in any kind of rhythm when things are that slow. We quit after the 14th hole.

Good Value

Fairways are a little bare in some spots. Greens are in good shape and are challenging. I would play it again.

Nice forgiving ayout.....good pace of play

Paired up as a single. Appreciated some course knowledge on a few holes. Greens in great shape, but a number of fairways need some repair......very thin, no grass. Not sure it’s worth the $60+ green fees. Would definitely play again with golf now deal.

Always a great place to play. Staff is great, greens are in great shape. Some fairways could use some work. But overall a solid place for 18 holes and an adult beverage.

Poor shape

The course is a good value if the condition were better. Many patchy areas that had no grass.

the pace of play is really slow, marshal does nothing to get it going, on most holes there were 3 groups waiting to tee off, not going back anytime soon.

Put some love back into the grass

The course was very bare and dried out with poor conditions on the freeways - I mean fairways. The tee boxes were OK. The greens were in better condition and were puttable. The layout is not bad, but hard, dry and lack of grass from tee to green makes it not worth a trip back. I had not played here in 25 years and the course was in better condition from that memory. I will not be back.

Very Slow Pace

I played on a Sunday afternoon and there were 4 parties backed up on each hole. After waiting forever on the 3rd hole I asked for my money back. I will never play there again. The course is ok but they overbook it way too much.

It took 6 hours to complete the round. It's unheard of.
