Getting Better. Recommend

This course is getting a lot better. The greens are in great condition. Fairways still need some work, but overall they are putting in a lot of good work to maintain.

Poor customer service

The lady was very short and unwilling to answer our questions. The course was not worth the money I was charged but the greens were fair. I will not be playing this course in the future.

It needs some major changes

For the price, this course is definitely not worth the value. Not when Bent Creek is in the same price range only a few miles away. I want to like this course. I enjoy the layout, the greens are extremely slow but they are good. The biggest issue is the fairways. Between big patches of sand and the terrible grass/weeds, it's not fun playing here. Good staff, solid practice facility but I can't pay for another round here.

What you see is what you get

Don't expect too much, the Course is course, a little challenging. The pace of play is the real culprit, "Hackers" looking for a deal, and playing the back tees, hitting it to the ladies' tees. If not for that I can handle the unregined fairways, and molasses slow green. Will I play it again, for the deal I probably will, I played it to hone my game for Monday's tournament at a more upscale course, well, it honed my game, I'm ready.

Horrible golfing experience.

best i've seen

seems they are funneling some money into the course. the greens were green and best shape i have ever seen here. could probably be rolled and it would make them a little faster. some of the fairways actually are showing signs of bermuda growth where the others still need some work. it was mowed and looked good. its a challenging little course with small greens so you better be accurate. i would definitely go back now. the 18th was in really good shape and we were lucky enough to see about 30 wild turkeys near the green(not the drinking kind)

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...
