A little better than I remembered

The fairways are in really good shape. Some of the greens are in need of real help. Overall it was good experience but honestly not worth the money they are asking in greens fees.

The greens need a lot of work on the bare spots. The greens are in the worse shape that I have ever seen. For this time of the year the growing season for the grass they should be in a lot better condition. I will give it a month before we play the course again in hopes that the greens will be better. Thanks

Could be better

Compared to other courses in the area, we really enjoyed the layout but that was about it. Staff was very friendly as well. Fairways were probably the best part of our visit. Unfortunately, the tee boxes left a little bit to be desired and the greens were fairly patchy/diseased. When rolling across spots that were in better condition they were still slow. I'm eager to see what this course will look like when the greens are in better shape. In my opinion, this course was not worth the $30 twilight rate in it's current condition, better options in the area for better prices.

Took a chance...

This is one of my favorites but I haven’t played it in a long time because of the problems they’ve developed on the greens. I read the latest review that said they were coming back but they are still a long way from where they once were. Hole 1 has a temporary green in place and only a few of them are in decent shape. The rest are still on the mend. The rest of the course is in good shape with some tee boxes somewhat bare. It’s a shame the greens are so bad. I hope they get it back.

The greens are beginning to make a come back. They are not fast but average speed. Fairways are in good shape. Driving range grass has come back nicely.

Greens are unplayable and they take your money and never say a word about it. They keep raising the price and the course keeps getting worse.

Rough Shape

I have played this course about 4-5 times and I must say I was disappointed in the shape of the course. In the past it has been immaculate but today not so much, the greens were in bad bad shape, could hardly putt on them and the fairways were beat up. Not sure what happened but it was hard justifying spending $50 to play a course that was that beat up. I hope they can get the course back in shape, it is a fun course to play and the staff is great!

Greens need to be replaced on some holes

Most of the course is in good shape. Right now the greens are in really bad shape. Our group instituted the 2 putt rule after hole #1. Hope management can fix the greens because the course was in great shape a few years ago.

Terrible greens.

Played the course yeasterday. Greenfee was 50$. All the greens are in a terrible condition. In addition to that it was sanded and aer’ed it was big areas on all greens that was totally «dead». On top of that many pin-placement’s were in those «dead» areas. When you book a tee time on a course in that condition you should be able to get a fair price. It was the worst green’s we have ever played. Tried to call the manager several time, but only reached her voice=mail.
Service in the clubhouse was great, so was the food.

The course has a good layout.

The greens were in terrible shape. The hole course had been airified . The greens were bare in spots. It will be a while before the greens have grass back on them.

Work in progress. Greens were very bad.

Enjoyed the company of a Canadian Couple, Paul and Angela. The greens were being worked on and in the worst condition I've ever seen on a course. They are hoping this will improve as the work continues. The restaurant staff was extremely nice and the service and food was great.
