Golf Day

Great day to golf. Course was playing very nice, greens were very consistent, and so was the sand traps!! Lots of sandy areas off the fairway. Busy day on the course, but still played 18 in just over 4hrs. Nothing to complain about here! Will come back...

Pleasantly Surprised

Only played the front nine due to a late afternoon start. Had never played the course before and was very pleasantly surprised by how good the condition of the course was, and how well it played. The greens were a bit slow, but In very good condition. Tee boxes and fairways were also in great condition. We really enjoyed the round.

Played in fall 11/13/19 @12:37 tee

Starter let us tee off early around 12:20 , it gets dark earlier due to the mountain range . Had to wait on a couple holes , greens where in good shape, i thought that they where going to be faster. They where actually slow . We complete round around 4:40 . Rough is heavy almost impossible to to reach green in Regulation if your in that rough . Would play this course again

Challenging

Played the white tees: moderate difficulty with the front nine. Extremely challanging with the back nine. Many bad designed holes on the back nine.
We will not return.

Good condition this early in the winter

Greens nice but a little slow still. Tee boxes need a closer shave. Rough is rough and should be given the wide fairways. Pace is slow, especially on the back nine. Nice to have electric carts and use them on the whole course this time of year.
Range was down. Could use a marshal and a cart girl when it’s so hot.
Overall decent value for the price.

Good conditions

This course is in really good shape. Play here every year and was pleased to see the course in good condition. Love the layout, but dislike the open caverns lacking water. Bring in some dirt and equipment and get rid of the eyesores.

Beautiful Day Mice Course Conditions

The over seed has the course looking great. Still a little soft. The greens are very slow. Takes some getting used to. Enjoyed the day and the overall course conditions. Some really good holes. Especially #18.

A quick 9 holes

Played 9 holes with a couple of beginners. An interesting course with a few surprises, like water. Only played the front nine and will be back to better my experience. I would like to play the full 18 but my partners are not up to it yet.
Course was in very good shape. The rough was unforgiving and the greens very slow, but they ran true. Will play again for sure

Replay was just as good

Played here on Wednesday and came back today. Greens are great. Each one like a practice green. Rough was cut down in most areas so easier to play from. However still a great test and for $15 GolfNow, you just can’t beat it.
