Nice course. SLOW play

Course was nice but they overbooked and were running behind two full tee times.
Averaged 20 minutes per hole. 10 to play and then 10 to wait. Only got 10 holes in after paying for 18 because we lost the sunlight.

Very slow. Great distances through residential areas between holes! Plays longer than the yardages. Slow greens but good conditions.

This course was disappointing

For the price I expected a course in much better condition. Tees and greens were not well maintained. Frankly I wouldn’t come back.

Course needs maintenance help

Greens exhibit wear and tear, ball damage prevalent. Sand traps have grass growing in some, sand very thin in others. Fairways reasonable. Not worth the fee charged.

Very playable course in McCormick Ranch

Fairly good layout considering fairways run throughout a neighbourhood. Lots of driving between holes through neighbourhood. Greens in good condition but a little slow. Good sand traps. Good value if you are able to get a discount price.

Soggy

Have played this course dozens of times, though not for the last 5 years. Course was ok; fairways were a bit soggy (rain over the last week) and greens had lots of ball marks. Having said that, still enjoy as a “ go to” course.
