Pleased with Greens

The greens were very consistent from hole to hole. Many bunkers are in below average condition. Pace of play was 4 hours for 18 holes.

Enjoyable round on good course

Course was in excellent condition. The staff is very friendly. The greens were outstanding and the fairways were above average. I'd recommend this course to anyone.. especially at the current price point.

Needs work

Greens are in great shape. Fairways have too many bare spots the should be GUR. Bunkers are terrible. These problems are nothing new.

Over One Hundred Years of Playing Experience

Between the four players who played we have playing experience of over 100 years. We have played great courses and municipal courses.
Such was the quality of service, the course conditions and the pace of play, we played one hole and left the course and drove to another course. We have never left a poor review but this deserved it.

Mediocre Course

Good value for the money, Back 9 very short. Greens were in terrible shape. Don’t think they had been rolled for many weeks.

Above average greens

Enjoyed the course layout! The greens were better than expected. The only negative aspect of the day was slow play.

A Lot of Fun

Nice municipal course. The fairway conditions and bunkers are in less than ideal shape because of the terrible weather. It's been difficult to mow and such in the area recently due to heavy rains. But the conditions are certainly good for the price. Course has some cool holes with great variety.

Bang for Buck Muni!

Decided to play here due to a gap in schedule on a recent 3 day trip to Tidewater. Arrived at 2:00 for our afternoon round. Course is not in perfect shape, but in much better condition than I had figured for that price. Course layout is fairly simple. Greens didn't look the best but rolled true. Staff was more than helpful and went out of their way to help us with anything, including a free cart for our handicapped friend who came as well. If you are into high end uppity places, skip this, but as far as bang for the buck, this course is legit.
