Very poor condition

The course is in very rough shape. There were many bare spots on the fairways and greens. The grass on the greens was long, uneven and bumpy. I realize covid has caused problems everywhere but this is not acceptable. They should not be charging full price for this.

Worst Condition I Have Ever Played

$70 with a cart is $50 over priced. Greens burn spots, bumpy, fairways brown spots., tee boxes all rough... every hole needs a lot of love. Beautiful trees, it could be nice, but they have given up on maintaining this course.

Course is not what it used to be

It appears as though the maintenance crew has literally given up on this course. Greens were not rolled, insane amount of bald patches on greens and mud puddles on fairways.

Used to play here at least 2x a month but won’t be back if the course conditions remain the same.

Good course for price

As stated, nice course the blocks weren’t set up properly and they had no yardage markers which was disappointing. Some greens were burnt and sandy but maybe 3 total. Paid 40 for a round and cart I really can’t complain other than the blocks and yardage.

Terrible condition

I have played both the old and the new in the past week and they are both worse than cow pastures. The greens are terrible, especially bc they really isn’t any grass on them
Need to close and repair this place

The course has some interesting challenges

The course is fairly easy to play, but did have some challenging shots. Some chutes to hit through and some narrow fairways. Also a few trees guarding greens. There are no bunkers. Some of the greens were not in great shape. They had bare patches. They had been sanded to help with that. The tee blocks and fairways also had bare spots and were hard. All in all the course appeared dry. I would come back under better course conditions.
