Ehhhhh

I want to rate it higher but this course just isn’t it, especially considering the other courses within 10 minutes. The greens are extremely slow & the grass of the course is more lawn grass than an actual golf course. And it’s not like it’s priced so cheap that you can overlook stuff. I won’t be returning

I won't be back

I won't go back it was like playing in someone's back yard, the greens were decent and pace of play was not a problem because it wasn't many people out there. If I had paid more than the $14.00 I paid I would have been highly upset.

It's A Lot Better Than Hyde Park.

It has its ups and downs but for the money it's a steal I rather go there for $22 then to play at Hyde Park for 30.
The greens are in the best shape I've ever seen though they're working on The Fairway but I understand what they're doing and everything's coming together they can cut the rough down a little more so you don't lose your ball every time you go over there but if you don't hit it on the rough it's smooth sailing. Thumbs up to the ground crew and the greenskeepers heads up turabi you're doing an excellent job keep up the good work. Mark S.

Glory days

When it was run by the Navy it was a four star course. It has a lot of character and love the small greens but I guess the lack of money is making it difficult to even keep the fairways mowed. I saw a lot of improvement when people started using the course for disc golf with its own layout but that effort and enthusiasm is in the waning phase. If the fairways were kept including the greens and bunkers that would be enough to push three stars instead of the current one star status. Oh glory days...

Greens are terrible

The staff is very friendly. The carts are great. The course has a great layout. The greens are not kept, fairways are not cut or kept up. So many disc golfers now that it makes playing difficult, even though golfers have the right to play through. You would think that the money they are getting from golf and disc golf, they could do better on the greens and fairways. Great for beginner golfers, but if you want to play true golf, not here. The practice areas are better than the course.

To bad for a golfclub.

It’s a pity that the Golfclub is in such a bad shape. The people working there are not friendly. I don’t want to come there again. It only cost me 3X10.00 dollar.

Awful...so sad for what once once a good place.

At 9 this morning no range balls available so worked on other things--chipping, putting, etc..., while the ranges balls were being picked up. From then to 10:30 checked 2 more times with the pro shop having seen the catch trays filled 3 different times. Still, no balls. Really? I have tried to support Cecil even in its horrendous decline in the last 10 years. But now evidently it can't even function as a second rate driving range. I have put up with terrible fairways, none existent greens, bad to mediocre at best chipping and putting greens, and purchased cut, gashed and warped driving range balls for the last time there.

Close course until up to par!

If the course was shut down for at least 6 months it could be wonderful. Tee boxes are horrible. If the fairways and greens were treated and not played on for a few months they would be nice.

Terrible Conditions

This course is never great but it was absolutely terrible. The fairways (if you can call them that) are mostly dirt and the greens were extremely shaggy. A bucket of range balls were $7 which is way overpriced for the area. The lady in the pro shop was also extremely rude about start times even though no one was there. The only positive was the quality of the food in the restaurant.

Stay away! There are much better courses in the area in the same price range.

Good place for the average player

I had not been here before and I was rather surprised. I brought my son with me to play and recommend to go with someone that had not played much golf in the past. Good place to take your time or for a partner that needs to take more time than other courses. Greens are really small and challenge to hit for those needing to work on approach accuracy. Fairways are not in good shape on a lot of holes but nothing horrible to play on or use winter rules on. For those living east of downtown it does take a while to get to the course. Plan on extra time to get there.

If only

Cecil could be a very nice course but it needs a lot of work and money. Fairways have potential, bunkers not very good and greens probably best aspect. Laid back and a not rushed. The potential is really good but the same could be said of most concerning our game.
