Greens and Fairways need work
Some of the greens were in poor condition, spots of bare ground and weeds. Some of the fairways were in need of mowing.
You get what you pay for
I played this course once before so I knew what to expect. Is it Grand Cypress or Bay Hill, absolutely not, but it was good for what I wanted, a practice round. There are no driving ranges around so I use courses like this as a way to work on my game. I had the 1st tee time and I could hit 2-3 balls on every shot and work out the kinks in my game. There are some tight fairways so it helps me work on keeping it in the short grass.
Great layout. The tee boxes could use some TLC. The fairways are a combination of Bermuda and crab grass. The greens are in good condition except for the occasional sand hill crane divot mark. Would recommend at the current prices(<20)
the course is in bad condition bunkers are wasteland greens are being pecked up by cranes obviously not being sprayed ,more cost cutting .greenkeeper needs to get a grip.
We enjoyed the day
Customer service was 5 stars, everyone is always so nice. Course has its issues with weeds but honestly, very playable. Bunkers are getting the weeds creeping in but you can still play out of them. Tees are about the same, needs some TLC and obviously funds. Greens are slow but not terrible. All in all it’s a place to play with great service.
Course was wide open and often would slow us down with being in the was of our drives or second shots, tec.
Found out at check in that we were going to be charged as a four some though we only booked a twosome.
My group of players enjoys playing the East course. The greens are in reasonably good condition but slow. The course was wet, due to recent rains.
As always, the employees were very friendly and helpful.
Checking in and getting a cart was a breeze, two very nice gentleman. On to the course, the greens are slow but are ok, just slow and grainy. Unfortunately, the fairways and rough are nothing but weeds, but again playable. If they could mow it would be much better. Bunkers are what you’d expect. Overall, it’s a place to get away and just play golf.
Take your putter out to an asphalt or cement driveway. Count the times the ball bounces left or right on a 15 foot path...then practice distance control ..vary from a nap carpet to a linoleum floor and several on closely mown lawn patch...you should have this down when you play the greens.
They have markers on all the tee areas..otherwise you could not tell them from the fairway and the fairway from the roughs. Make your group a bunker rule...you can place the ball in any area not torn up by footprints, bird tracks, or washed out cuts. Lift, clean and place to any grass suitable on the fairway, there are patches of good grass within a 3 foot range of your ball.
Imagine the worst conditioned course you have ever played...give that course a 1 to 10 and then subtract 5 to 8 and you will have this course rated for playing conditions. Enjoy your round.
One and done....will not play again
There was no grass in the fairways. They were not bare, but rather filled with weeds...no grass. The tee boxes were awful, the greens were fair, with may bare spots.
The layout is awful, and the conditions were worse.
The staff seemed friendly.
The course is in horrible shape. Tee boxes bad, fairways bad , sand traps bad , but the greens were the worst. It needs a lot of Tlc . Wouldn’t go back and play for free
