Great For Beginner

I've just started golfing in past couple of months (always thought I would hate it).. My more experienced friends thought this was a good place for me to start learning and we've had such a good time, that we now play here roughly once every week or so... mixed in with a few other courses. It's a good in terms of pace (moreso now with Covid-19 rules) and requiring a lot of short iron play/putting.... i.e., good for learning the basics.. The staff has been great every time, the scenery is beautiful and the course is in good shape. FYI, now I'm learning to love golf and this club has been a big part of that. Oh, and try the tequila sunrise if you get the chance!

Fun day playing

Course is in great shap. We played corona virus rules where you just have to hit a small cone and it's good

It was nice to just get out of the house. The course was really busy but the pace of play was really good at 3 hours and 15 minutes.

Rude residents to paid customer during COVID-19

I feel bad for the golfer who just recently played DW and Paid in FULL online via GNow and found out the course was closed...I live on this course and I too would’ve played the full 18 holes despite a lot of the RUDE and OLD folks who THINK they own the course..DW should’ve notified GNow to suspend tee times during the COVID-19 issue..wasn’t your fault and sadly probably won’t get your money back any time soon..I’ve had verbal run ins with these cranky folks and I have the advantage of shutting up these rude folks by basically telling them to “QUIET-DOWN” with a more aggressive tone and not backing down just cuz they live here as do I after showing them my residence ID ..at times a ball comes near their property and they know it’ll happen..and they feel they have to put in their 2-cents at you...I hope you come back soon when all this is over and enjoy DWGC it is an awesome course DESPITE the old cranky ailing folks who act like BULLDOGS when really they’re just yapping chihuahuas!!!!

Great little course

An excellent course to hone your short game. Challenging greens, course is in very good condition. Traps have the right amount of sand and tee boxes are level and well groomed. Course can be busy when the weather is nice but play seems to move pretty well. Played today, 1-1/2 hrs on front and 2 hrs on back. I will be back often.
