What once was

I had a fond memory of playing here and talked it up to friends. Felt like a fool when we actually got out there to play. I heard new management. Horribly shaped conditions.

Worst course condition in years

This course has gone way downhill in terms of quality. I have never seen this course in such bad shape. The fairways are covered with numerous patches of dirt or the grass are dead in many areas. The greens near the water holes have goose droppings everywhere so you can't even put. And nobody seems to fix divots. For the prices they charge, I will not play this course again. Much better off going to the other municipal courses that charge less and have better course condition.

Mud all over the course yet hasn’t rained in 6 months

Layout is pretty cool. Lotsa doglegs, some water, bunkers were better than most. If maintenance was done course would be so much nicer. Patches of fairway looked like they were tilled the night before. Tee markers are dry rotted out. Standing water everywhere. If a bit of pride was put into the course I would come back.
