Challenging course, good shape.

This course is challenging and you must place your shots to stay out of trouble. Overall in good shape, some rough areas, greens are fuzzy and a little slow but in good shape. You need to play this course a couple of times to get the layout.

Thank you for leaving us a great review! The greens were a bit fuzzy at this time as we had a bit of rain and kept the mowers off the green for a day. This time of year, they're usually very fast so next time you come back you'll have a challenge on your hands! See you soon!

What a DISAPPOINTMENT!!!!

Greens were HORRIBLE - the pace was so disappointing. Several tee boxes were in a state of embarrassment. The course has a beautiful layout with such great potential. Most of the traps are washed out and muddy!! DONT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY - until they start putting money back into this property!!

Hi Rick,

I apologize you had a poor experience at the golf course today. We had 8 inches of rain leading into this weekend which made it difficult for us to have the course 100% back to its normal conditions. With that high of a volume of rain, some of the traps do start to hold water and we also cannot get mowers on everything as we do not want to tear up the golf course. I do hope that you will give us another try when we are not coming off of such poor weather. Thank you for taking your time to offer us your feedback. That is what allows us to know where we can improve.

Good for the money

Payed the hot deal price and enjoyed the course. The course was in good shape., fairways were rolling and greens played true.
There was a lot of blind t shots that made the course difficult for someone who has never played this course.

Great Staff

Course could use some work. Too many "blind"
tee shots.

I will say this; I have not been to a public golf course where the staff is as friendly as this. From the Pro shop, to the starter, to the wait staff. Everyone is extremely gracious and sincerely asks how you are doing.

Thank you for taking the time to offer us some feedback. We do have some blind tee shots out here and while some dislike that, others see it as a fun challenge. We have developed a really great course app that has gps and overhead views of each hole so it can help you navigate those shots.

Thank you for the kind words about the staff. We have such a great team here and its very rewarding to hear our guests are having a good time!

Hope to see you again soon!

wet yet fun

A few of the fairways had some bare spots but no big issue. Just move the ball a few yards onto the nice fairways. Greens roll moderate speed even though course was wet. Greens had been recently aerated. Tees in real good shape and majority of fairways in real good shape. This course has an excellent layout. Fun and challenging course. Good food in the restaurant and good service.

@johnleishear Thank you for your great review! We are working every single day to make sure our guests come and have a great experience from check-in all the way through their post-round lunch! In reference to the bare spots you talked about, we did have some early summer weed activity that we went ahead and jumped on to spray out. As such, those areas are thin but the turf is growing back in there quickly. These recent rains will only help with that. Within a few weeks those should be completely healed over with nice healthy turf just like the rest of the fairways! Thanks again for taking the time to leave us a response and we look forward to seeing you again next time!

Good morning! Thank you so much for leaving us a nice review. The rains we have had recently have set us slightly behind in the traps but the team is working hard to catch back up on those now that we've dried out a little. Looking forward to seeing you again soon!

Use the app

Course layout excellent
The range has not been mowed in a long time not sure how they are getting the balls back
All there have commented on the tee boxes. Yes some are patchy. But appears they are trying to get them back in shape. I mean we use tees so this is not a game changer.
Only complaint, appears I started playing in time for the sprinklers to be on. Literally chased them most of the long holes

Great Layout

Course was in decent shape for this time of year, some of the fairways were a little worn, but greens are fine and it is a challenging golf course.
I recommend it.
