Challenging first few holes with unpredictable greens

First few holes quite challenging for me. Some tall grass led to me losing a few balls that I thankfully felt better about when I reclaimed a Titleist Pro V1.

The greens were a bit unpredictable. On the back 9, they seemed to run more, but on the front were pretty sticky.

Overall, a good value for the money.

Fun course

The course was fun and very challenging hole position due to a tournament this day. Overall grooming could be better. The layout is very fun and challenging. I would recommend this course for a fun day of golf. Hole play was a little slow. We did see a fox run across the fairway with a snack in his mouth :-)

Great conditions, weather, and we saw a lot of foxes! Awesome day!! However, GolfNow didn’t share my online booking tee time with the golf course. Had to work to get the rate.

Exceeded expectations

Rough was pretty ugly but the fairways & greens were both in good shape. Layout is pretty easy. Not a ton of trouble to get into. Would recommend this course for mid to high handicappers.

Fun coarse

Everything was great at coarse other than no carts. They decide on any day not to have them so make sure you check first before you go if you need.
