Weed and Dirt

The course was busy and I don't know why. Fairways and tee boxes were either weeds or dirt. The greens were very SLOW with a few bad spots that were sanded.

Rough course

We were first to tee off. Pace of play was obviously very good. Tee boxes, Fairways and greens were all in very rough shape. I use yo call this my hone course but until things change there, I will be looking elsewhere to play.

Overall it was good for the price but it was in rough shape. The greens weren't to bad but the fairways were a mess. They didn't want you driving on them because they were seeding, they were terrible. I almost sometimes would rather my ball go in the rough.. The pace of play was great and I like the layout, but they have to get the fairways under control and it would be a pretty decent course.

Get what you pay for!

For $12.50 for 9 holes, the expectations were not high. However, the course (back nine) was atrocious! No grass in the fairways, lots of sand in the fairways, greens were recently aerated (which is fine), but the overall conditions were the worst experienced in decades!

sandy

The greens had recently been aerated and there was a fairly heavy spread of sand on the greens making "reading" the greens impossible. That's all OK if we were told about this BEFORE the round. But we only discovered this once we were playing. Not good.

What is Going In

I have played this course many times over the past few years. Unfortunately the conditions of this course are in swift decline. There is very little grass on the fairways and the greens are abysmal. I used to enjoy this course but not so much anymore. I'd advise you to play elsewhere if you want a decent experience.

This course was not as advertised.

My husband and I booked this course with the view to playing eighteen holes. When we checked in we were told only nine holes open but we were still charged $16 each. If we had called the club directly we would have only paid the nine hole rate. This is not good enough, Golf Now should not charge for eighteen holes when on nine are open and should monitor any alterations to the course and tell people in advance.
I would like a refund for this overcharge from you at your earliest convenience!

Great value

When I booked this course I wondered if the course would be playable. It was very playable. It was setup for play during the pandemic but the greens were in great shape and very quick in pace. Fairways and tees had good grass given our dry winter and the layout is both fair and challenging. Highly recommend it. Very enjoyable to play as a twosome in less than 3 hours and only pay 22$ for both of us using golf now discounts. You just can’t beat it. Thanks for a fun round of golf.

Moderate breeze. Warm. Good course condition.

Low on rain this year. Down 6.5 inches per TV weather but course was in good shape and greens were pretty fast and rolled well.

Layout is nice, fairways were so so. Ruff was not grass but mainly dirt. Greens were ok but needed to be improved. Felt like hard stone and not greens as are at other clubs. Although not expensive price was high for what you are playing on.

Definitely Worth A Repeat

They have been continuously improving this course for a few years and it definitely shows. Greens are in really nice condition and fairways are mostly good with over seeding. Cost to play has gone up some but it is definitely worth it.

Love the shotgun start!

We had seven golfers and the gal in the pro shop was so helpful in setting up our group to be able to play close together. She went above and beyond to make our day so enjoyable. All the staff we encountered from pro shop, bar/restaurant, and the starters were very friendly. The course layout was fun, the greens were in good shape except for a couple that had some issues, fairways were in better shape than most of the courses we have played so overall, a great course.
