I have played this course when it looked like a country club. The front 9 Greens where terrible. You couldn’t even read a putt they where do bad. A lot of dead spots and the greens where very bumpy. The back 9 was a little better but they needed water and mowed and rolled. I probably won’t be playing there in the near future.

We played from the back tees, at about 3500 yards, expecting an easy outing, but the course has several interesting holes that make it play harder than expected. Several holes have moderate carries over water of about 150 yards, many sand traps, and some narrow fairways that require precision. Driver can be used on some holes, but a layup might produce a lower score. Each hole has a water hazard of some sort. The greens were a bit bumpy due to a mix of winter and summer grass growing together (late March) but were in decent shape and reasonably fast. The fairways were good. We played in about 3 hours. In my opinion, the forward tees would turn the course into a pitch-n-putt, but the back tees make it a golf course, just smaller par 61.

A short course with 11 par 3's that vary in length from 100 - 200 yards an 7 par 4's that are all around 300 yards. Good variety for an executive style course. Lots of water in play. The greens are large and were mostly in good shape. The entire staff were very friendly and helpful. Pace of play was very fast.

It's not going to give you the same thrill as playing a regulation golf course with lots of par 5s but itks a fun way to spend a couple of hours and the price is definitely right.

We have played this course twice now and have enjoyed it both times. There is plenty of water to lose your balls, so make sure that you have plenty with you. It is quite tight and challenging. We would definitely recommend.

11 par 3s + 7 par 4s = a fun challenge. I played the back tees. The par 3s range from a couple at about 120 yards to a couple at almost 200 yards, with some subtle but important elevation changes between tee and green. There is LOTS of water to penalize shots wide, short, or long. And there are often bunkers or significant mounds where there is no water. Six of the par 4s are about 300 yards and let you pull out a big stick for a shot of about 230 to 250 yards before the fairway narrows and invites your long or wide shot into bordering woods, sand, ponds, or mounds of wiry grass. The greens are the best defense of par. They have elevation changes and significant slopes which, combined with moderately fast speeds, make for big breaks and tough downhill putts. The fairways and greens are in good early spring condition. My wife, who shoots just under 100 on full-length courses, parred about half the holes. My score was ruined by double-bogeys on the two longest par 3s. We both had a blast.

Based on Golf Now reviews, we expected much better conditions than we found. The staff was excellent, but the course was average at best. The modular homes surrounded every hole and made trip from green to tee treacherous. Would not recommend to friend.

It was a beautiful day and 4 of us set out for 9 at around 4 pm. We were all alone. No one in front. No one behind. Perfect. The starter must have been somewhere else so we just teed off. The holes are short but there were no signs anywhere about staying on the cart path. Anyway, at one point the started did come up and remind us to stay on the path on par 3s. Other than that it was a perfect round and our beginner golfers loved it. We will return
