Near Perfect

Played mid-morning on a Friday and our foursome got off on time and play was just over 4 hours which was surprising considering some of the other reviews.

The course was in top shape from tee boxes to greens. While fairways were mostly stratight those with doglegs weren't much of a challenge.

Staff was friendly and helpful. Overall a great time was had by all.

Water ...

Course was in good condition, however, there only are water fountains on the front 9 and didn’t have a cart service on the course. So, plan accordingly.

Overbooked

The staff (1 cashier) was professional and handled the flow of people well. With that said the course clearly overbooked tee times. My 7am was pushed to 7:15 which is not a big deal but tee #1 had an endless line of carts waiting to tee off. There were at least 6 groups waiting. I went back into the pro shop around 7am to recheck in (I was there early and asked to come back after I hit my bucket) and there was a line of about 7-8 people waiting to check in, with phone, after phone ringing. Some people were going off the back and I ended up just canceling and not playing the course. By the look of the first hole the conditions look decent, but I honestly can’t speak to them.

Conditions

I totally understand upkeep and maintenance. But they had started aeration a couple days before. I’ve never seen greens so white with so much sand. Not just one or two but at least 15 of the 18 holes the greens where unputtable

I personally believe they should inform you in the pro shop when conditions are as such. I also believe that it was just poor maintenance work. Lazy. Left way too much sand and chunks of dirt and grass on green .

Slow Play

Course played very slow, so many hackers out, causing me to lose interest in my round after the first 4 holes. we played as a 4-some and took 5 hours to play a 6200 yard course. that is just insane. Greens were really bumpy and the holes were so damaged from people slamming in the pins.. tee boxes need some TLC and so do the carts

Slow Play

It was a very nice day however the pace of play was just horrible, no Marshall was around to check things out. Front 9 took 3 hours and is only a par 34 WOW.. back nine took about 2hrs 20mins so pretty average however we played thru a 4 some and we were a 4 some so it saved us about 18 mins, i was able to finish 18th hole, drive out to car put clubs away, change shoes, use mens room and the group we played thru was just getting onto 18th green.. Tee boxes need some attention

Never experienced like this

We had 2 groups of 4 and has tee time at 11:00 & 11:07.

We got there 10:30 but no cart was available until 11:30 and had to wait 4 groups at 1st tee.

Therefore we started our game little after 12 and pace was so slow. We had to wait one or two groups each tee box. We could only finish 15 holes with 11am tee time.

It seems like they try to get as many as players they can put in because they still charge people even though golfers don’t finish their game.

They should have twilight rate starts at 11am!!

Best Bang For Your Buck Course in the area

This course has a great layout. The first four holes are lame, but after that, the holes are fun, interesting, and challenging. The condition is good. The greens are great. The price is right. I highly recommend this place! I've been golfing for 29 years, and of course, there are nicer places. However, those nicer places charge so much 2-5 times more.

Had a tee time at 11:30 for four sum but we started game at 12: 20 and not even finished round. There's no cart available and club house starter staffs not even apologized. Totally uncontrol management and disappointed. I won't play this course again and these people ruined our weekend.Worst play time ever.
