Typical for the area

Have played here many times over the years. I know its winter and the grass is dormant so that's no problem, but I did notice the greens are not as nice as they were the last couple of years. I will go back because its a fun course to play. Has some challenging holes like #4 and #13, but also has some easier holes and ones that you can par easily if you play from the correct set of tees.

Great course

Greens were very good for this time of year (12-31), very playable, some brutally hard and some straight forward.

Not good.

This course was a awesome place to play. But this course is going down hill. I know it is winter golf. But the sand traps are very bad and the carts paths are horrible. I will probably never play there again.

I always have fun here. I think the course layout is a good mix of a challenge and fairness.

Pretty Nice.....

I have played this course on many occasions. Its fairly short, and provides a great golf experience players of all levels. Its normally not very crowded.

Good course!

g

I haven't played here in over 2 years. Well worth the one hour drive from my house. The course is in fantastic shape, probably the best greens around (fast but true). Even with a lot of rain a few days ago the course was well drained. The course has a great layout.

Confusing course

1. The layout is very confusing and there aren’t many signs saying which way to go.
2. The person who took my money admitted to not being an employee and there were no employees there.
3. They didn’t have logo balls, hot food, or much of a pro shop at all for that matter.
4. It was more expensive than courses I typically play and the course and cart paths were not in good shape.

Extremely disappointed

No sand in the sand traps, no water coolers anywhere and it was 94 degrees. The greens had not been cut in several days and the staff was extremely rude about showing up too early and threatened to charge an additional 12 dollars for the early arrival. Extremely disappointed!
