First impressions weren’t the best
This place could be a great golfing spot once the course conditions get better. You could tell summer did a number on the greens fairways.
I might try again in the future when things get back to normal. But for a golfing spot to just play at a reasonable price it will do.
Great for short game
Staff were as friendly and supportive as always. Tee boxes and fairways were in good condition, but the greens have some patches. Not sure whether the recent heatwave or other issues affected the greens so dramatically, but I hope they recover quickly. Still recommend this course to everyone.
Beware of staff
You get what you pay for. Guy at pro shop really needs to work on his people skills. Waited 15 min for cart, course could use some work.
WORST EXPERIENCE EVER
Didn't expect much for an executive course under $20, but this was worst than expected. Checked in about 40 minutes early for an 11:50 tee time and they were already running 30 minutes behind. The issue was carts. Not sure why that would be an issue. They should know how many carts are available before they advertise tee times with carts. The guy working in the shop was rude. I asked for a free bucket of range balls since we had to wait so long and he refused. Unreal. I bought a bucket anyways. The range was decent, but I was hitting balls over the back fence with a hybrid. No sign telling not to use woods. There is a tee box behind the netting and seems very unsafe. It was littered with range balls. Course was in bad shape and played EXTREMELY SLOW. Our cart needed to be pushed during the last two holes on a nine hole course. Ridiculous. The yardages were totally changed from what is on the scorecard. One par 4 was now a short par 3. Other holes had no yardage posted and had to guess. Greens were slow, as expected. Dude at the bar was cool. Don't come here.
Happy I did
This is a nice executive course, fun to play and work on shots (fairways are narrow and greens on the small side). My son in I do the hot deal have enjoyed it both times we’ve played there.
For the money, this course is wonderful. Superb, friendly staff. Conveniently located practice range with a "bucket of ball" price that cannot be surpassed. Brooks Bar available for food and drinks. Practice putting and chipping greens right next to driving range. And the pro (Mike) ensures the range balls and practice greens are first-rate. As for the course, fairways in good shape, greens too. Overall, a fantastic place to practice one's game. Highly recommended.
Great beginners course
This was a fun course especially if you're looking to get a quick round in! If you're a beginner, I definitely recommend this course to you. Little to no hazards, greens aren't tricky at all, and really encourages you to sharpen your short game. Fast pace play even for walking the course. My only con of the course is watch for other balls flying your way as the holes are crammed. Also, the fairways are very hard and sometimes rocky. But, great value for your money and will play again soon!
Below Value on Every Tee Time
This executive course has potential, but it is in awful shape. If they bothered to mark the course properly and maintain it, it could be a fun play.
Stay away. There is a bar on the course which is cool, but the course is awful.
Do not waste your time.
Course in horrible shape!!
Course is really run down. Carts are literally falling apart. 20 bucks for 9 holes, is a stretch here.
Would Not Recommend
Poor course layout, grass outside of the green in poor shape or nonexistent, 45+ min wait for a cart, carts in poor condition and did not see them being disinfected between use, very slow pace of play waiting on others ahead.
Pay for what you get
The course is okay the rough is ROUGH the greens okay some spots where it’s over watered one thing that I don’t really care about is after they mow the course its noticeably left all over the roughs. It’s a fun beginner course if your looking for something quick. Only other thing is when I’ve booked tee times rite when they open at 6 the gates aren’t open yet usually don’t get started till 15 after but no big deal cause no one is usually there that early
