Like the lay outs. There are some area being repaired (fairways). The greens are slow because of aerification but no more sand. A couple more weeks should be perfect. We will come back again.

Great course. Very fun. Only problem was the sand. It is absolutely unacceptable for the bunkers to be in the condition they were in. It’s even more confusing because the rest of the course was wonderfully maintained.

Not in ad good condition as it was last year! Bunker are under repair and rough is not as well kept up as last year. Fairways and greens are good but greens were just sanded so let’s see how they respond? I still like the course but the bunkers need to be addressed soon?

A little disappointed there was no notification of the greens being aerated. Wouldn't be that big of a deal for the price we paid except, the enormous amount of sand on the greens. The sand traps have no sand and looks like they just gave up on any maintenance of the bunkers.

Booked a Friday noon time hotdeal for me and a buddy. 3 days of rain kept the crowds away, but didn't spoil the course too bad. The greens rolled well, and fairways were passable. My ONLY complaint is that about half of the bunkers were completely full of water. Now, of course lots of rain will make it hard to keep them pristine, but this is not a flat course and it has several creeks running through it. I feel that if you are going to have deep bunkers, you should add enough drainage to keep the puddles small. As is, if your shot went into the bunker, it was lost.

Again though, this is my only complaint, otherwise we had a great day. We'll be back

This course has good challenging holes on the front and back. The rough is cut high enough to hide your golf ball so keep an eye on it. The bushes are very thick and you will wish you had a chainsaw if your ball jumps to it. The sand traps are in real bad shape so stay away. Fairways are good and wide on some holes. Watch out for the road off the tee on hole 17.

Love this course but their bunkers have been in brutal condition for a long time. Seriously need to bring in a few dozen truckloads of sand. Other than that we had a great day. Fairways and greens were in good shape.

Sad looking bunkers. Wet dirt, no sand at all. Should be marked as ground under repair.

No marshal to enforce a proper pace. We were stuck behind 3 drunk people that had no consideration for others. At one point 3 groups were waiting behind them.

Course condition is 8 out of 10

Greens 7 out of 10 somewhat slow

Traps are by far the worst ever, like trying to hit off concrete, just like RidgeMark

The tee boxes were unmowed, bunkers are being redone or empty and the back 9 was really sloppy, even though it’s been 4 days since the last rain. if I’m paying $80 I would expect better course conditions or at least warn us or include range balls or something.

This course is usually well kept and viewed as a good deal which is why I booked it when my family came into town. Was embarrassed throughly.

This is not the first time I played here, I like this course but....

First off, this course is fun, it has a few challenging holes, and also some wide fairways as well. The only problem is that during the rainy season, the course does not drain well, and right now the bunkers are full of rocks that can ruin your clubs! However, I think that they will fix this and add more sand, once the weather gets better???
