I wanted to play nine holes and so I thought this course has a nice layout where I can use most of my clubs. The course is in fair shape. I paid $9.99 plus fee at GolfNow which I thought was a great deal until I found out that the cart is not included with the price. GolfNow should have flag that one in. Other than that, it’s ok. Next time I play there, I will bring my golf cart.

I have played this course for a few years and it has only gotten better, it still needs improvement in the practice area, but the course is great for the price.

It's not very challenging but it's great for a quick 9.

The staff is friendly, it's an easy walk and the greens are usually in great shape.

I typically play this course when I want to practice and only have time for 9 holes. The course is in decent shape and the greens seem to roll pretty good for this time of year. Usually the pace of play is slow because of a lot of beginners on the course, but if you go in knowing it may be a little slow you'll get thru 9 holes in 2 hours or less. The staff is relatively new and not as friendly as past staff members. All in all the course and facilities serve their purpose for a quick practice round and the price is right!!!

The course has better than expected greens, they are a bit slow but overall a smooth roll. The tee boxes are what is holding this place back, it is impossible to find an even lie. Fairways are decent but the rough is patchy crab grass which puts a great demand of making the fairways. Good thing is there is no one playing it so I never had to wait to take a shot.

The course in in fair condition. It is very short. They had a bunch of groups of 5 people ahead of is so it was extremely slow. They also have soccer golf there and they play right on the course and that slows things down even further. I would not recommend this course unless you are a beginner with no expectations.
