We had a great day, weather was great, pace was very good. Greens are as good as any around the area. Narrow fairways, might loose a few balls to the water gods, but we enjoy this course

The course was OK but the fairways were a bit bare and left mud on my ball with most drives. Greens were OK.

The course itself in comparison to all other courses I play (I'm from central Ohio) ranks mostly in the middle of the bunch.

First off, I ran over a broken up beer bottle in the parking lot (no flat thankfully). Had to walk a quarter mile to get to the club house, but the course allowed us to take our carts to the parking lot. Since I made my tee time on GolfNow I was unaware of league play going out just before us. It took 2 hours 45 minutes to play the front in which I was not pleased. Fortunately for us leagues only play 9 holes. Why the starter didn't send us off on the back 9 is beyond me... especially a twosome. Played the back nine in only an hour and fifteen minutes.

Tee boxes were ok, fairways had very little grass, greens were like thick carpet and slow, but not to bad. Be prepared to hit a few in the water if you've never played this course. I think maybe 15 holes will have some kind of water hazard.

Played on a Sunday afternoon. Foursome in front of us cancelled so we figured it would be a fast round. Was pretty good till the back 9, then people started coming on the course who were not booked. Not a ranger in sight. This is a decent short course - front nine is kind of tricked up, but the back nine is a really nice layout. Lots of water on the front, not so much on the back but still enough to cause trouble. Course rewards accuracy, not length. Greens were terrific, consistent and rolled true. Very tricky to read; added at least 6 strokes to my score. Would have bumped them a star but the play on the back nine was slow as molasses - my pet peeve. Very friendly staff, place is clean. Appears the bar/restaurant across from the pro shop is a happening place! This course is heavily played, so expect to wait awhile while playing. Many hackers come here, and they don't belong on this course.....

I booked this round on behalf of my foursome and it was a mistake. Our group usually plays a couple times a month (not an option on this review). We try not to get in a rut and like to try new courses.

Pros: The staff was kind and friendly, although unfortunately only one person tends both the course registration AND the snack shop. The greens were in great shape, though not very much undulation. Beer and snack prices were very reasonable.

Cons: Just not in overall good shape. Hard to tell the difference between the tee boxes, fairways and the rough as there is little, and sometimes, no grass at all. Much of it is just brown hardpan. Sand is not great either, light sand over hard earth...pick clean option best in many bunkers. From my experience, there are several courses right in this vicinity that charge only a few dollars more but are lightyears more worth it.

The starter let a crew of 7 having a bachelor party start off before us. They would t let us go off on 10 which was open. By the time they were off the first tee there were 4 twosomes waiting. We joined up with the group behind us which was no problem since we knew we were going to be waiting all day. I don’t mind slow play but a 5+ hour round was not pleasant. I won’t go back till summer when the crowds thin out.

The course is getting a lot of work done. Tee boxes with better turf, new sand in bunkers. Greens were nice, but a little bumpy. I love the challenge of this course. Tight fairways, a lot of punch shots out of the trees and a lot of water on play. You have to hit shots, fade/draw, etc. placement off the tee is key. Staff is always friendly and great restaurant across the street for after the round. The course is worth a hot deal, but it will humble your game if your not playing well.
