Not worth the night golf

We played this course because it had good reviews for a cool 9 hole night golf course. It was not what we thought. Course was in very poor condition for the price and was barely lit up to even be considered night golf.

Great place for us non yuppie players

I appreciated this course being a fun short course.
Great for someone who just wants to play at their own pace.
Great for people who are new, don't get to play much, and/or just don't want the hassle of a upscale course.
Prepare to lose balls on the 8th hole.
I'd love to play this course every day.

Fun little executive course

this is a well kept and nicely manicured short course. A great break when you don't have a ton of time. The greens were super and the fairways nice.

Review course description carefully

Went to course and was basically a par 3 course. Staff was friendly But 1st tee box was 4 deep with families and kids. Due to Pandemic, did not feel faster and left without playing. Would have taken forever to play.

A great place to loosen up your golf body or to sharpen your Golf skills. Easy walking some roots in pathways, see you next snowbird season.

Nice par 3 course

Fun to play. Fairways and greens in nice shape, especially the greens. Gets a lot of play and pace is slow. A lot of senior players and most walking. Has a nice practice area but driving range is off mats.

Great 9 Hole course

Played as a single at 7:45 with cart and had the entire place to myself. Course is in excellent condition....tee boxes to greens.
This course has 7 par 3s and 2 par 4s and water on 7 holes...narrow track.
A great course for the new player and intermediate with nice practice facilities and friendly staff.

Nice par 3 - operationally disorganized

The course is nice, water hazards, lots of grass. They double booked our tee time - asked us to arrive an hour later. It was a busy day - showed up 45 minutes before tee time but only able to hit balls for 5min because of staff shortage- no balls and no cart.

Pleasant surprise

The course was in excellent shape. Tee boxes, fairways, and greens were in the best shape I have ever seen them. Will be playing there again this week.

Compact irons course

Water hazards gobble up errant balls. Hit straight you can score decently. Greens very sandy effects putting efforts. Enjoyed the day
