The greens are as hard as concrete, pins are at the very front of the greens every time I've played. I typically play here when I can find a deal for $25ess. Not a $60 course in my opinion.

Interesting layout

Course has a very interesting layout with lots of par 4 doglegs and bunkers guarding the greens on both sides. The fairways are not as wide open as I thought and being the first time either of us had played the course, there were a couple of ditches and hazards that were hidden or we just didn’t see. The price was great, and we finished 18 in 3 1/2 hours. I’d probably go back, but there is some very obvious wear and tear on the greens.

I haven't played here in years.

The course is as much fun as I remember it to be. Lot's of trees that have grown much larger! Number 9 is ridiculous! Pace of play was great as it should be on a 95 degree day. Only down side was the pro shop, not particularly friendly, but efficient.

Old course, challenging but staff not very friendly

Didn't eat or drink so this is not a rating for the restaurant. Pro shop guy was not very friendly. Didn't even say hello when I walked up to desk. No smile. No direction. Just told me to sign sheet. Older gentlemen. Not friendly at all. Course is challenging. Definitely older as trees have made a lot of holes harder as they have grown. Greens are tough but in OK condition. GPS on carts doesn't even work for distances and approach shots or driver distances. No info at all. I'm sure it's only there for geofencing. Probably won't golf here again.

Great course

This was my third time playing this course. I love it, fairways are in good shape. Greens are a challenge. Sand was a little hard but with no rakes they were acceptable. I will play here again soon.

Well managed course and the pace of the play.

Beautiful day in the low 90 degree early summer weather, perfect for a round. Well prepared to meet the Corona 19 requirement. Felt safe to play. Courteous and very friendly staff and efficient. Had a low score in recent rounds. Thanks Golfnow for extending 2 months membership.
