Once upon a time

At one time I am sure this was a well conditioned course as the "root"s are there. Today however the lack of maintenance was obvious as the fairways, were sandy and the drainage for water was very poor resulting in what fairways that were present were wet. Some Tee boxes were hard to determine if not for the box markers.

Bruce's review.

I have played here a lot. Course is good condition and plays a little challenging. The folks at the course are like family. Always nice to me. Maybe that's because I am always nice to them.

Mixed feelings about this course

I have played this course about 6 times in the last 3 months and I kept hoping it would get better but the conditions are just awful. The staff however is wonderful and I feel bad writing a negative review which is entirely about course conditions and not the staff. I have played there frequently lately as my wife is a beginner just learning the game and the course was not crowded so she didn't feel rushed or intimidated. The greens fees are very cheap but this is a case of you get what you pay for, There very few holes where the grass in the fairway is abundant and in good shape. Most fairways are mostly weeds and sand. What is not sand or weeds is bare dirt hard as concrete. It can make for a very frustrating golf experience to hit a ball well and where you want it only to find that your lie is horrible. The greens are actually not bad but weeds are beginning to take over. If price is your biggest criteria then I highly recommend but I just got too frustrated with the conditions to come back again.

Update- Played the course again on June 30 and things have improved. There is still a ways to go but the grass in the fairways was better although still a bit sparse in some areas. The greens were in good shape and the weed encroachment I mentioned earlier has been addressed. Very happy to see that an effort is being made to improve the conditions as I really like this course layout. Kudos....I will be back.

Give Yourself Good Lyes

Indeed, giving yourself a good lye is absonutelynecassary at this place. There is so much sand both on the fairways and on the side hills near the bunkers and the greens such that you have a hard time finding your golf ball for that reason alone. You may need to move it by more than ten yards to find a reasonable patch of grass. However, the folks who play there have good ethics and will let you through without hesitation. This seems like an ideal spot for anyone just starting to play golf. On a positive note, the greens are much better than what you see on the practice green before heading to the first tee. For the final hole, no 18 that is, I would suggest you keep you drive left of the two tall trees, otherwise your golf ball may end up withithin a dozen or so other golf balls that have just rested near these trees from the driving range.

Super Friendly People

The folks here are great. Friendly and helpful. The greens are in nice condition and the fairways are good but if you get off the fairways at all you will most likely have a sandy lie or maybe some weeds. Great value though especially in the afternoon.
