A hot day

This was a fun place to play and a good value.
You would not find the pga playing here but all levels of golfers would enjoy playing.

The course was in good condition, but greens could be faster.

Fun Course

The course has a good layout. It is a shorter course even from the tips, but it was a fun course to play.

Always a good time with friends

Our golf group lives in 3 different cities and this is by far our favorite course to meet at. The staff, and the owners are phenomenal. Always with a smile. The value for money is exceptional even when paying "full" price. The course is not designed to pull out a driver every hole and smash it then hit a short iron into the green. There are holes I tee off with a 7 iron. We love that variety. Greens are always full and in good shape. If I lived closer, this would be my home course and I never would tire of playing it.

Fun course

Early spring round, course was in good condition although the greens were slower than times I’ve played before. My only complaint might be that without gps on the carts they could do a better job marking yardage on the cart paths or at least have a stake at 150 in the middle of the fairway. I’ll definitely be playing there again this season.

Quality golf for the price

Not the most visually appealing course in the Ozarks but overall solid golf for the money. Shot well for the first time playing it. Even the lengths from the tips give average golfers a chance to score low.

A very nice course with a lot of elevation changes. It was in very good shape for November. There was a lot of leaves though. I believe if your going to charge normal rates you should be mowing the fairways and ruff to mulch the leaves. Golf balls should not have to be searched for when they are in the playing area.
