This course is needed a lot of work in the past and it still does in order to compete with the other area courses that are priced very similar. Would really like to see them make improvements because it's so close to home and they offered to course.

Nice course - some challenging holes, but a lot wide open fairways. Great value for the money especially of playing in afternoon when green fees are discounted on Golf Now. Not perfect but very enjoyable for public course. In fact there are two 18 hole courses here......recommend both.

Tee boxes for the ladies are really good. Fairways are really good as well, but the greens are somewhat slow and has a problem with weeds on them, which will make the ball roll funny.

We played this course on a Saturday and were pleasantly surprised that we could get on before our tee time. Some holes were slower than others, but it was a perfect day for golf, so we enjoyed our day & round.

We have played this course for many years. The course is in good condition for this time of year. I especially love the FORWARD tees. I am in my mid 70's and no longer hit the ball as far as I use to. Makes me feel great when I score a round I the low 90's. We really enjoyed our day and round. Plan to play this course again before we head home.

The staff was great and very helpful. The course layout was interesting from what I saw. I only played the first 10 holes of the Oaks course because of rain but what I saw was a good variety, some tight,some open. Fairways and rough are all one length and overall the ground was hard. The greens were just okay, disappointing if you are a serious player. They have small patches of an intrusive grass that make them a little bumpy. It didn’t bother me because I was just out for a fun round. Good price. I would recommend with those qualifiers.
