Nice round

Nice course and nice day. Not to tough a few challenges. Fairways were nice and green and maintained. Staff was quite young but eager to help. Nice tine overall and we will be back.

Outstanding Experience

I decided to play The Ponds with a buddy of mine, for the first time. I was told by others that their experience at the course several years before had not been enjoyable, so I was skeptical of following through with the tee time. I'm glad I did, because I was told the course is now under somewhat-new management, and man have they done a great job! The grasses and bunkers were very well maintained- especially the greens. Despite the large amount of wetland and hazards on the course, it was a great experience and round.

Nice Track

Nice track. Conditions were ok for being early season, will be better in summer. Friendly staff, and nice bar area and patio to grab a beer after your round.

Good value, friendly staff

The course features 27 holes, I played the red and blue sides most recently. The course provides an excellent value and is moderately difficult. It is not a course that has striking features and the primary difficulties lie around some of the wetland characteristics of some of the holes. All in all a fair value and enjoyable time.
