Surprising & good course.

We had a fun time . Moved right along. Played in 4 hours. Some of the holes were surprising. Had some of the “up north” features. Everyone was cordial from the check in to completion. Could not stay for drinks after, but enjoyed the day.

Good city course

Course was in good condition. The greens had a lot of ball marks and were bumpy. Tee times r in 8 min intervals so the course is always backed up. Expect your round to be 5 hours long.

Needs work

Driving range in very poor shape. Little grass. May as well just put em on the mats. Course has always struggled to stay grass throughout. A number of bare hard spots. Greens a bit shaggy overall. Lots of ball marks. I always repair 2 or 3 other than my own. A bit over priced for what was delivered.

Excellent links course

Excellent course with great manicured grounds. Actual real fluffy sand and a pleasure to play with ample challenging holes.

Definitely a great value for 34 bucks we played off of golf now

Decent course but terribly run

Second time I tried this course, same result. Upon arrival it took 10 minutes just to get a cart for me. I heard people coming off the course complaining about the pace of play but I was teeing off in the afternoon and ght it would be better. Big mistake. There were 4 groups waiting at the tee on #4 and it was slow the rest of the way. Quit after 9 holes as it was looking like close to a 6 hour round. No sign of a ranger or anyone trying to do something about pace of place. Practice range was gutted...very hard to find any grass to hit from. I just cannot recommend this course and will not return.
