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 .

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

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

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!!

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.

I arrived early for my 2:30 tee time didnt tee off til 2:45 due to golf cart shortages. When we arrived to the tee we were cut off by another group and when we tried to pair up with another twosome they didn't want to play with us. When we did eventually tee off the course was in fair condition and greens were ok but a few dead spots around greens and landing areas were noticeable. Over all I would only play here again if it were earlier in day and in a foursome so there wouldn't be a pace of play issue

If you expect to jump holes and just get some shots in where u can... this place is fine. If you wanna play golf for 18 holes and feel there is some order to this already crazy game... not ur place. Guy inside was very nice, range was ok, location ok, course was ok.... just ruined by American Golf not giving rain checks and facilities not properly managed on a Saturday afternoon=no rangers to keep people in line.

This place is a local muni that serves a golf starved locale. Great players club option to join and pay monthly for range balls. Lots of regulars get out early here and the pace can be hit or miss, but of all the local muni courses they typically have some of the better greens and the layout is fun and has a few challenging holes.

The rough isn't really penalizing, the sand is decent and the fairways are pretty good so nothing to complain about there. The community here is pretty laid back and fun loving at the course too so its an enjoyable round. Nothing worth driving for, but great local place.
