I'm not a Duck

Water, water, and more water. Short coarse 5000 yards and a lot of par 3's. Had a great time the playing field was in excellent shape.The greens were sanded but it did not effect putting. I would play this course again.

Short, Tight, Tough

This course has water on every hole. EVERY HOLE. If you are an accurate iron player, you will enjoy this course. You must play strategic golf -- several of the par fours require only a 200- to 230-yard WELL PLACED tee shot. Driver will get you into trouble.
This is a par-66 layout. I did not break 80.

Crane Lakes

Very challenging course from the black tees.
Water in play on many holes from black tees . Carries of 200 yards off tee, several par 3 over 200 yards.
Greens were a nice speed with subtle undulation.
Course was soggy due to all of the late afternoon thunderstorms.
A fun course to play

Not Fun

Got to the course only to find out cart path only. They could have told us when making the tee time.
On the tenth hole they inserted a twosome of people who just started enjoying the game in front of us. As we waited for the tee they teed off, bumped chests, and preceded to dance and kiss.. This went on for a couple of minutes. Not a big deal but the rest of the round we waited on every shot. We were a threesome waiting for a twosome. I can put up with some of this, especially when new people are taking up the game, but the course was empty behind us and there was no reason to slip this twosome in front of us. On one hole while we were waiting I read the nice note they have posted on the cart. Specifically they have a threat that if you go on a person property they are "heavily armed". Really?

Great condition!

Course is currently in excellent condition. Tee boxes, fairways and greens exceeded expectations. Staff is very friendly and informative. I feel very comfortable at this course. There is water pretty much on every hole. Water may not be in play on every hole but it’s not to far away. Beautiful course!

Always in nice condition

This course seems to always be in very good condition. It's tight, and there is a LOT of water. I got around the course without losing a golf ball . . . this time. But when you play here it's best to bring extra balls.
The greens were fast and have some subtle undulations, so practice your putting before setting off. Though the course is relatively short there are some holes that have some good carry from the tee over water, so choose your set of tees carefully.
I met a nice couple playing the course for the first time and had a pleasant round. The amount of play was very light due to rather warm weather so the pace of play was pretty fast - just three hours.

Great Condition. Very Challenging!

Besides the blistering heat, this is a great course! It may be short, but that doesn’t matter. The fairways are narrow, there are hazards everywhere, and the greens are FAST! Well worth the money. Very fun to play. The Club House crew was friendly and helpful for first time golfers.

Nice short course

Nice course, little tight at time for a new player. Flew in from out of town, premium rentals are in terrible condition. Would not recommend rentals but the course is nice.

Bruce-
I don't believe you received the premium rentals. We offer Mizuno and Taylor Made Premium Rentals. I followed up with my staff and you played with the Standard Tour Edge Rentals. Next time you play here, just mention this incident and we will cover the cost of the Premium Rentals and make sure you do get the correct ones next time.

Really Good Condition

Our group plays here a few times a year mainly because they take such good care of the golf course. On the surface some see a simple par 66 short course, but the golf course requires some precise shots if you want to score well. The greens are exceptional and the entire golf course is well manicured. The staff has always been friendly. The pro shop is well stocked. A very well ran organization.
