Fun open course but price is getting outrageous

I love this course because it has wide open fairways but still challenging enough. Pace of play is great but the price just keeps going up. Used to play here a lot but now only if I can find a deal through golf moose or Groupon, non deal is price is $35-65 depending on time. Staff hasn’t been very friendly either when I’ve been lately.

Alright

The greens were in pretty rough shape, it looked as if they are trying to fix them but every green had deep brown spots the had a ton of sand on them. But really the rest of the coarse was pretty forgiving. All the sand traps were pretty wet, made it difficult to hit from .

Decent track

A pretty flat and uninteresting layout but well kept and the greens were in outstanding condition. I’d play again if I was in the area of Nicolaus but probably wouldn’t recommend making a special trip to check it out.

HOT, BUT GOOD

Although the prices have been raised since reopening after the Covid shutdown, the course is in the best condition it's been in years.

Decent course, but not worth the rising prices.

River Oaks plays as a decent cheaper course, but their prices don’t reflect that. It’s too bad because we enjoy it as an easier home course, but the prices prohibit us from playing often, apart from occasional deals. If we’re looking to spend $40-$50 on a round, we’ll go play one of the nicer courses in Lincoln or Roseville.

Just okay

The booking was difficult as I am a senior & played with my son. Required 2 separate bookings. The course changed our tee time after I booked, to a less convenient time. The course was crowded & very slow, no marshalls seen to help speed play. Overall disappointing

Hidden gem

Every time I play this course I like it more and more! Starting with check in, the staff is welcoming and friendly. The course is fun and challenging with left and right dogleg holes, water on a few holes, and more than enough bunkers! The greens rolled fast and true. A fun course to play that will definitely challenge you. We finished in 3 hours! We plan to play again in the next week! Keep up the good work!

Coved round on the road

Having played here several times I can tell you the course is in good shape with greens very slow but smooth. No rakes-divot mix-water on course. There was a portosan on the 6th hole.
This course is not tricked up and it shows you what you need to put the ball in play. Blue tees at 6k with some fairways rolling out.
If your looking for a round that you can make a couple of birdies and a couple of doubles come on down.
Would play again in 2 weeks- if the price comes down.
