Very cold

The pace was very good but the conditions were not great for golf due to weather. It was in the low 50’s

Need to rough mow!

THe grounds crew needs to invest in a couple of good rough mowers! If you are off the fairway, you will lose your ball.

Thanks to rain!

The course is very green but the drainage is lacking. This is sometimes a good thing but does need to be corrected.

First Time Playing

Great layout.

Love this course. Staff was friendly, pace of play was great, the price to play dictates the overall condition of the course.The design of this couse suits all types of players. Challenging par 3 4 and 5s. Tee boxes, fairways and bunkers all need attention. Greens were in great shape. According to staff there is new Management on its way. I would love to see this course come back to its original condition. Looking forward to playing this course in the future. We paid $26.00 to play 18 with cart at noon on a Saturday. I would pay double that if they could get this course back in shape. I recommend this course soley on the design and layout and not the current conditions.

Looking forward to new Management at this course.

Windy, windy, windy

Course has a tendency to be windy. Design of course is excellent. Course is not well maintained. All bunkers are overgrown with vegetation. No driving range. But excellent green fees if you play on off times.

Course in Disrepair

Even thought the rain is having a positive on the course color, the grass length, the weeds, and the barren spots are out of control.

Good greens; tee boxes ok

I like the layout and challenge of this course. The green s are in good condition but slow. Also, the players do not repair their ball marks! This is simply discourteous to the rest of the players.

Better wait ‘till the course is cleaned up and fix the problems

Except the afternoon breeze, the weather was perfect, sunny and mild temperatures. The is not enjoyable to play due to several areas of the problems.

1. Hole #1. Practically a swamp. Geese’s playgrounds.

2. Fairways. Not taken care of. Bumps and holes all over. All rough grass - not mowed or cleaned. No sight of any maintenance work is being done.

3. Greens are the worst. Geese dungs, divots, damaged grass pockets. Not playable.

4. Bunkers: Some of them are not playable at all Practically there are piles of fallen leaves. No sand.

4. Tee boxes: Dibots , punctured and inconsiderate and inconsistent moves of tee boxes.

We used play at least 2-4 times a month until last month. The course layout is so much fun but it seems that it’s totally neglected to be taken care of.

This is probably not the club’s fault but there was an incident caused by a player. My partner was driving the cart toward the clubhouse and there was a man coming, driving fast and yelling, “Don’t you see it’s one way?” The one way sign on the pavement was faded and further, it’s wide enough to drive even two cars! The older man was driving a fancy personal cart, indicating that he may be a resident player. Our cart was a clubhouse cart. If they don’t want the outside players come, they should not have opened it to the pub, assuming all the maintenance expenses. Plus, I have never seen such a rude golf player in the last 30 Years, especially to a lady golfer.

We will wait until we hear that they have corrected the situation. In the meantime, there are pracally over 100 courses within 40 miles from us , that GolfNow recommend and also welcome us for the business.

Getting A LITTLE better

They are working on this course. Still in very poor shape but since I have been there last it has gotten a little better, still would not waste my money or time here for at least another few months, I only played here today because I got a rate of $3.59 after a coupon

Horrible front 9

The front 9 of this course was HORRIBLE it had weeds and dirt patches all over, I know they are trying to get this course back under control so it may be better in time but for now save your money it’s not a place to play right now
