Pace of play - CPO

With the course being cart path only because of the rain, we were waiting on every hole the whole day with no one checking pace. I know here is only a starter but you’d think the pro would marshal the course since it was so packed.

Mediocre

Needs capital improvement. Range, range balls, cart paths, tee boxes, pro shop and grill all need help. Greens ok. Value is there for $27. Could be a better experience.

Snobby statement: get the blue jeans off the course.

Humpback Greens

90% of the greens were small "postage stamp" greens. They were all humpback constructed. If you didn't hit the green in the middle 2/3 of the green, your ball rolled off into the green side rough or sand trap on all 4 sides. Parallel fairways throughout the course. Was constantly worried about an errand shot.

GART

Nice course layout. All of the fairways were brown, probably because of the cold weather. Greens were very fast and looked like they had been spray painted green.

Very pleasant and helpful staff.Pace of play great as it was a week day and temp in low 60’s.

Wet and slow

My wife and I played a couple of days after a soaking rain. It was cart path only and didn't look like the course was busy but we found out quickly. There were two groups of fives ahead of us and that combined with no carts allowed on the fairways or roughs, it resulted in a 4 3/4 hour round that could have taken 3 hours. The course allows five in a group but it also allows each member of the club to drive a single cart. 10 carts stacked up ahead of us really tried our patience. Other than the above info it was a very nice course that was challenging. I caution anyone who wants to play this course to select another day other than Monday/Wednesday/Friday at about 1100 to 1130, which is a weekly member group.

Decent course

Course is wide open. Greens are very challenging. They are all in shape of turtle shells and small. Great value for money though

Visiting area

Thought the course was in good shape, friendly staff! We felt the fairways were too close together, at times there were several players in our fairway. Good value!
