The Links, best in area.

The Links is my favorite course to play in the area. The golf course is always in good shape; the fairways are well maintained and the greens are all outstanding. The driving range is decent. The staff strives to make sure you’re always hitting off a good piece of turf by moving the hitting area frequently. The snack bar is closed, but you can buy beverages from the front desk and the cart girl gets around the course frequently. We generally play in less than 4 hours and will see her at least 5 times. My last comment is about the staff. These people are the nicest people I have ever encountered on a golf course. They go out of their way to please. This includes the pro shop staff, the marshals, and the guys in the cart barn. You will definitely have a good time here.

Won't go back

We have never encountered a golf course so poorly laid out or maintained. ..and over-priced. Obviously the designers thought that a huge number of similar sized mounds would create a quality course. They were wrong and the only result is that the course does not play like any other. To find oneself on some slope of one of those numerous mounds creates a too difficult play all around the course. Add to that that the course was poorly maintained and affected with weeds and wild grasses, plus the cart paths broken and with potholes,, plus the carts undercharged, plus the next holes poorly marked... We will never return.

Nice Course...Poor Marshalling

Great course and friendly staff. Four hours, forty five minutes to play a round due to fives-somes being allowed to slow pace of play.

Course Marshall was present but did nothing to move along pace of play allowing a five-some of loud drunks to slow up multiple groups behind them.

I would exspect this nonsense at a poorly kept public course but not here.

Bad start, good round

Golf shop personal very nice and helpful

Starter Marshall very rude wasn’t paying attention to the incoming play and decided to yell at us, for not stopping when he was too busy to even look at us.(unknown what he was doing to ignore us. He handle the situation very wrong and continued to belittle us with his tone!

Did not start well with the experience for my brothers and my son for their first time in the course. They were ready to leave at the number one tee box. Talked them down and we played the course.

Course in decent shape, flow of play was good.

Unfortunately this is one of two public course we can play and so no choice if we want to play it is this one because it is in better shape. As long as we don’t start with the starter Marshall again.

Thank you
