I was disappointed in the conditions of the greens. At least three were dead and one had a temporary green in the fairway. The other greens were only in fair condition. There was no water on the course and the lady at the desk said they did not have drinking fountain in the building.

You have to understand what you’re getting here. I’ve got three kids under 3 but my wife and I both play. This course allowed us to go out with two strollers, 3 kids and play 9 which is few and far between for any golf courses. It’s an easy walk and you can see while playing here it has some interesting template hole designs by Fazio who contributed to this project. Green conditions were certainly lacking but the layout definitely places a premium on ball striking which is what a par 3 course should do.

My wife, who is a picky golfer, said she’d come play this course every weekend for what it’s worth. $20 to hit 9 true iron shots is a steal. Unlike other par 3s which are a pitch and putt, this course truly requires great shots to score well. I left anything longer than a 6 iron at home when I came out which is a mistake. These are real par 3s that could appear on a “normal” par 72.

The course has too much water for my taste and from the back tees some holes were over 200 yards. Greens were a little lumpy, but should get better as the season progresses. The wind was 20+ mph so it was quite challenging.

This was our first time to play, and we are HORRIBLE golfers. The course was well maintained (mostly) and fun. The score card show distances for 3 different Tee boxes, and on most holes only 2 could be found. The course is not very hilly, but sand traps and water still made it a bit challenging.

From a pure golf perspective, its great. Nice course, range and nice areas to practice putting and chipping. The par 3 course provides some challenging holes. It is in great shape.

From an amenities standpoint, it is lacking. Food? Cliff Bars and that's it. Drinks? Bottles water and soda.

I will play again and be prepared next time. Would have had more fun had I known to grab a burger or something ahead of time.

Also, no carts.

Dad and I visited this course on Saturday. Had to wait 30 minutes for a cart. Greens were in horrible condition. I've played this course many times before, but this was the last time. Teenagers inside didn't seem to care about us having to wait for a cart. Seems like they are just holding on to the land, waiting for a big offer.

Needed a tune up after being out of golf for a few months. I had some new irons to hit as well. Course was in good shape. Greens were really nice and fast. Some holes did not have their 'card' yardages playable. All par 3's, avg about 140-150 yards. A few wet spots from the winter flooding. Challenging one-shot course. Practice balls (25) were torn up, but at least they were available. I would play again any time I had only 1.5 - 2 hours to squeeze some play in.

Played the course with my wife and daughters and had a blast. They have been playing for less than a year and felt the challenge yet where not discouraged by the difficulty. The course is well maintained in all areas but the sand traps needed a little work. For the money you really can't find a better value for a par 3 course. The staff is super friendly and are more than willing to help.

Got there and the kids working in club house were rude. Had to pay for a cart and then was told we couldn't chip or putt prior to our round it was only for members was told we could go to the golf course down the street for that even tho we weren't playing that course! The fairways were in decent shape but the greens were horrible sand traps had no sand in them more hard packed dirt. Overall I would say it was a waste of $30, not a place I would return too.

Hard to complain when it's $10 for unlimited rounds, but the course is infested with weeds and most of the tee boxes needed to be mowed. Staff was extremely friendly though.
