Course is in need of upgraded irrigation system and a lot of tlc as very fairways in poor shape and greens marginally better, but it is the lack of ranger intervention/ policing to mitigate slow play, and this round took 4 hours 45 mins riding in carts..two four balls ahead were playing off forward tee and fell 1.5 holes behind leading group by the 6 th hole.

There is nothing more game destroying in having to wait 5-8 minutes for every shot.

Not well suited to a serious golfer

Some challenging holes that make you go "hmmmmm". They obviously needed more space on a few holes. Greens were in very nice condition. Ball washers are needed on a few holes, and found most of the tee boxes NOT lined up with the direction of the fairway or hole.?

the grass on the practice area, former par 3 range should be cut shorter so people do not spend time looking for balls.

The grass on the fairways and rough of the main course is a perfect length.
