Ok for the price

I like the course for the affordability. I hate that they never have sand in the sand traps, just dirt and mud.

Course needs a lot of work

We’ve played this course 3 times now. The marshal doesn’t have a clue. Tee times are not respected and players can feel rushed. The majority of the golfers here are not here to play golf they are here to screw off. It is a very disappointing experience and we will not return!!!

Greens were good bunkers and fairways need some help. Price could have been cheaper for the condition the fairways and bunkers were in.

Could be a 4 with a little work.

Why won't you put sand in the bunkers? Also you have two porta potties on the front nine, how about putting one of those on the back nine. Mostly put some sand in the sand traps.

It’s a dog track

The only thing that was in good shape were the greens. No sand in bunkers and the fairways were literally like an off road course with netting coming up on several holes.

Fairways need work

Greens are in good shape and roll true. However, the fairways look like they haven’t been maintained in years. No efforts made toward weed control and numerous bare areas whereas turf should be.

Good Day

The course was in good shape. Greens were slow but in good shape. I like the slow greens so it was great for me. For a better golfer you may not like the slow greens but they were fine for me. I really enjoy playing this course.

Not coming back till improvements are made

Teatime was 8:15 AM. Front desk and starter were friendly and course was not crowded at that time. Fairways were average to above average, but traps were dried mud with very little sand in places. Greens were patchy with numerous dead spots. Some spots had been covered with sand to try to repair. I won’t play here again at this price.

The greens are crap, the fairways have holes everywhere, the pace of play is terrible and the marshals don't know how to move people along to prevent a 5 hour round.
The superintendent should be fired for letting the course get to the condition it's in, especially since he was released from a different course for the same reason!
To pay the weekend rate and be forced to play conditions that this goat track have, players should be played to play here!
As for the 5 star reviews, I hope those folks stay there and keep my home course free from lack of etiquette! Good luck.

This course needs to massive improvements!
First the superintendent should be fired, then hire one that knows how to take care of a course!
The ranger and starter should manage their course and control the pace of play so it doesn't take 5 hours to play a goat track that this course is!
This course has the nerve to charge 45 dollars on a weekend? They should be paying players to come out!

Course in so-so condition.

First time playing this course. Staff was very friendly and there were no issues there. My only reason for giving a low rating is because of the course conditions. Fairways were not up to par with most other courses. Lots of bare dirt spots throughout. Greens were rough and bumpy. And traps were hard pan and most were holding water from irrigation. I give the staff 5, but the course a 2.
