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.
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.
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.
Very nice course
We golfed this course last year n now again this year.it was very enjoyable.would n will play again
The course was very wet cart path only, it was still a good time the price was right not to busy the greens still had a decent bounce all in all a good time the staff was friendly.
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.
Course is wide open. Greens are very challenging. They are all in shape of turtle shells and small. Great value for money though
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!
Not a difficult course, pace of play was very good. Very clean course. Staff was friendly , my only dislike was multiple holes were next to each other so many times people were in your fairway... but overall great experience
Nice break from the casino
The course was in good condition. The greens were fast and rolled very true. The course is not overly difficult and very enjoyable to play
