Aeration Alert

Greens were aerated today so give a few days before golfing this course. It’s a great course but play is always so slow. Many older seniors unfortunately can’t keep up the pace. They probably would be better at a shorter course.

Not worth the price

This course was okay, but not worth the greens fees. Very short and tight.. Overall, I was disappointed.
Pros: The greens were consistent.
Cons: Too tight to hit driver on most holes, but isn’t really required being as the tips are about 5,000 yds total. 5+ minute wait on multiple tee boxes. Bunkers were quite sad. :(

Very tight to the point of being unfair in places. Grass thin in places. Employees were fine and price good. Met some very nice folks from canada and locally.

Well maintained

For anyone who has not played this course, it is a bit tight on a few holes but not normally a problem. The greens are in good shape but were running slow on 3/20.

Great shape well worth the money!!

This is a fantastic course for the price. It is in beautiful shape......10 times better then Providence high is twice the price. Good layout quite challenging!!! The only downfall pace of play could be much better....4 1/2 to 5 hours. If someone would manage the tee offs better and a marshal would make things much better for everyone.
All in all worth the play.

Goat Ranch

Very short and narrow, awful lies throughout the course, greens were ok, pace of play was terrible. It took us nearly 3 hours to play the front nine. Do yourself a favor and find another course to play.
