STAY AWAY!

This course is in horrific conditions. Looks like grass has been cut in months and I am just talking about the tee boxes. The greens were the worst I have seen in all the surrounding counties. Dont waste your money. Golf here if you dare!

Don’t do it!

Wow is all I can say. This course should be free. The tee boxes and greens are just the worst I have ever seen. The course is not maintained at all. If it’s not offered to play for free do not waist your time.

Good Value

The course is a bit rough but for $20, I don’t know how anyone can complain except for those who need plush grass to hit a golf ball. Those people are make believe golfers anyway. Don’t listen to the whiners. If you just want to hit the ball or you know how to actually compress a golf ball with tougher lies, then this course is DEFINITELY worth it. Also, it’s rarely busy. You can usually get around in about 3.5 hrs.

Very disappointed..Course in poor condition..Tee boxes,fairways,and greens in poor condition..For this time in the year, it's disgraceful that the course is in such poor condition...Not worth the cost of green fees being charged...the staff is very cordial and the facilities fair..

Save your money

Based on it’s current condition this course should be closed. I can’t believe they continue to charge green fees to play this cow pasture. I have been playing golf for over 40 years and have never seen a course as bad as this.

Course needs an overhaul

This course appears to have been sadly neglected. The tee boxes are very poor. The fairways are challenging but also in poor shape (hard to find grass in some spots. The sand traps have no racks. The greens are very poor - weedy, bumpy, not properly cut and also many areas of no grass at all. If I make another report like this I take pictures next time.

Rough greens

Greens were like a driving range. Tee boxes uncut. Not one stars because you could get a few extra shots in at every hole. Seems like they are trying to tank the course.

Don’t do it

Fairways were all kinds of tore up. Tons of divots too. Looks like the course hasn’t been kept up in a while. 2nd home was all dug up with a big dirt mound in the middle. Greens were horrendous! Holes, dirt, long grass on ALL greens. Could not read the greens at all, nothing was consistent. Long grass along all hazards, Weedeater coulda been used a lot. Should be about $10/round. I guess it’s not a bad course for beginners? Friendly pro shop employee, ok food at the restaurant attached. Saw a couple gators and turkey running around, that part was cool.

The loss of a fun course.

I haven't played it since they shut down. I called and was told the had 9 holes open 1 & 2, 11-18.
You would think with all the rain we have had grass would have grown. It might help if they invested in some seed for one. I
I played 3 holes thinking it would get better. It did not. It's sad the difference a few years make.

Course is gone.

We’ve watched this course slowly go downhill but after playing today I’d have to say they are probably going to be closing it down. The greens were so bad, they put holes in the fairway 20 yards in front of the green. We were actually putting on the fairways. The tee boxes were completely gone. What a mess. So sad to see it gone.
