Enjoyable Course to play

We like this course because it is out in the country with no housing development. Plenty of wildlife to see as you play the course. The Tee boxes were not up to the usual standard that we have played before need to be cut shorter. The staff are always friendly & the course is well maintained.

Very soggy

Course was extremely soggy. Cart path only and kept having to search for balls in the fairway because they would be constantly plugged. Beside being very soggy the fairways were in decent shape. Greens were also in good shape

Very wet

A lot of rain recently, some areas have a lot of gras clippings. Mowing at 8 AM, creates the hay effect, need to cut mid day after the dew dries out Only course we play that doesn't even open the concession area until 9AM. Bring your own water!! a

SOGGY

So I'm going to do exactly peshel play was horrible. It was cart path only. Every hole balls were plugged in the Fairway lost several balls due to not being able to find them with being plugged. No Ranger or Marshall trying to keep up the pace of play. Conditions were awful. In all reality they should have closed the course that weekend due to sogginess

First Time Playing

Soggy, but nice...

An extremely heavy overnight rainstorm made the course very soggy. As a result, the range was closed and the number of golfers was limited. Yet, we had a very good time and nice day overall. By the turn, the water was draining well and the back nine was fine. Our 9am tee time was moved up to 8:15, since there weren't any others in sight. With noone in front or behind, we took our time and finished in just over 4 hours...

The course itself is wide open. Water comes into play infrequently, and only on truly bad shots. Layout is fairly standard and offers plenty of chances for scoring well. For the price, it was great. The fairways were OK and the greens were better. If it hadn't rained so heavily, could give a better rating perspective. Overall, tho, we had good time and would come back.
