the young man at the club drop and the starter were very friendly and helpful. The course was in good shape and surprise there are no bunkers. It took us 3 1/2 hrs. to play and we enjoyed ourselves

Let players play

Booked early T time to play fast and you get held up by staff — so not to run into grounds crew -I guess .
Simple solution —grounds crew starts earlier

Perfect Sunday...

We played this weekend the overall rating would be good. The layout and fairways and greens were in great condition. It had some interesting twists and turn and was fun to play. My only complaint would be the pace was a bit slow but thats okay, more bothersome was the fact that all the ice machines were empty so was a bit hot. The staff was helpful and very friendly. I would play again.

Really Nice

Highly recommend. Played with one other person. Finished course in just over 3 hours. Didn't see a single person ahead or behind us. Really enjoyable course. Absolutely plan on going back. Was a fair price on the app, very nice staff and beautiful greens. A bit challenging but fun

Outstanding Facility

The drive in takes you to a secluded, private hideaway. Clubhouse is classy. Pro shop is beautiful and the employees we encountered(pro shop, bag person, starter, etc) were very friendly, helpful and hospitable. Started right on time. The course was fun and challenging-seemed a little longer than the GPS stated. GPS was seamless in cart. We caught up to groups in front of us and joined them around 12th hole. It was a slow slog from there on and no rangers in sight to spped up a slow twosome ahead of us.
All in all, a fun round. Beautifully kept course in excellent overall condition. Price fair. Couldn't ask for much more.

Course was sanded recently so the small greens were very difficult to hold sold shots.

Hello, u130772059. We appreciate you taking the time to review the course. We work hard to maintain the course for everyone's benefit, which means aerifying the greens as part of our regular maintenance schedule and keeping them in pristine condition. We understand that not getting rewarded for good shots is frustrating, but we assure you once our greens heal, your experience will be better. We hope you give us another chance!
