Condition very dry, poor, lack of grass on greens, tee boxes very chowed up. A container with sand on the tee boxes could go a long way as well as on carts.

Bathrooms on course were very disgusting. Floors very wet, most toilets missing covers on tank, just not something one wants to use.

The greens are extremely fast!!! Even if you hit on the fairway you more an likely hit onto sand/hard earth. Dont bring your SW your hands will regret it. I'll never play here again.

I have played here several times do to its location and price, however this is the last time. Course was in terrible shape for season. Extremely slow play for a par 60 and a rude staff just adds to the awful experience. Go play a 9 at a nice course, dont waste your time here!

Great price for weekend play. The green is little choppy, other than that, it's in good condition, pace are slow due to too many little kids on the course, specially when the growth up let the kids running around and tearing up the fair ways.

When we checked in we were told everyone was staring on hole number 10, which was fine. Then the starter (the guy behind the desk) came out and told our group to start on hole number one. We started on hole number one and everything was going fine until we reached the 10th hole and there were three groups waiting to tee off. I went in to talk to the starter and he tells me everyone was starting on hole number one today and that he didn't have room for us. I about came thru the roof and asked for the manager. After a 20 minute break we were able to get back to our game. Don't waist your money on this course.

Place is really run down. No grass on greens. Golfshop sends out singles followed by doubles followed by 4somes. No attempt to put people together for a better time.

Greens were the low light of this course....very little grass on the greens and some were “painted” green!

Would not recommend as course is very tired... could be a great course if it was cared for ... superintendent should go visit the Futures course at the 500 club to see a well conditioned course...

This was the first time we had tried out this course, what a disappointment. Course was in terrible condition the fairways were browned out, the greens were in terrible shape, don't think I have ever played on greens where there were more weeds in the greens than grass.

Nice executive course! 3/4 par 4’s & a par 5! Very nice mix of long & short par 3’s!

Level teeing areas a nice plus! Greens rolling nicely too! Good bunkering keeps you focused on the tee!

Definitely will be back!

The greens were in very good shape 6-8 weeks ago but have gone downhill. It appeared as if they weren't getting enough water.(?) It was disappointing. There are better executive courses to play.

I have played this course a handful of times in the past and I don't remember it being so bad. The greens were in poor shape with very little if any grass. The tee boxes were small, and uneven. Only the fairways on the few long holes were good. Needs a lot of work.

Arrived early and gave them my name, they couldn't find my reservation in their computer. I handed them my printout from Golf Now with reservation and confirmation numbers, they still couldn't find it. The man said he would "work" me in. Then he tried to charge and I told him look at the printout its pre-paid. It maid for a very unpleasant start of my round. They need to definitely get the system organized. Makes me weary of booking here in the future
