This course has a really good design.

The holes have a cool layout and it really has potential.

Unfortunately the grass is in horrible shape. The tee boxes are not flat and patchy. The fair ways are alright. And the greens are very bad. The whole course needs help.

A great course to play if you want some challenges. Granted the wild hogs caused enough damage to close the front nine, but the back nine will give you a run for your money. And stop by their restaurant if you want to try some great food.......

This course should be closed until it's repaired.

The green are un-puttable and the fairways are full of weeds.

My god-just Fix this place or shut it down.

This is the worst course condition out of any of the local golf courses. As my playing partner said, "I will not play here again even if it were free". The "greens" are brown, full of dirt, tons of weeds, and bad spots everywhere. I know they said that they have had some wild boar issues lately, but that doesn't excuse having virtually no fairways (all dirt and weeds). The whole course should be considered a sand trap.

No Driving Range

Practice Green was in terrible condition

Starter sent us to first Tee and other Golfers at practice Green said they were next

Starter said Course was in rough condition do to wild hogs

Not one Green of 18 was in acceptable condition

Maintenance was burning brush near a tee box

Maintenance was clearing brush when the Course had more obvious immediate needs

Many of the Tee Boxes had incorrect yardage

Played course about a month ago and to see what happen to it is amazing. It looked like someone had took a bull dozer and destroyed tee boxes and fairways and greens. I questioned a grounds person and understand a large number of wild boars had done the damage. I think it will take months and thousands of dollars to bring back to where it was a month ago. Sad to loose a close by course.

For the value received you cant complain. The front nine is very short but the back will challenge you. Its a work in progress and you can see that they are trying hard to bring it back. A job well done. Be%er than you paid for.
