Book Ariss at least once a month. We get a great deal on Golf Now with cart. Challenging enough course where you have to use course management. Would recommend to anyone.

The course was very wet, but should dry out in a week or so, according to the proshop fella. Staff is always great here and the course is kept up. We'll be back when it's a little drier.

I played the course today for the first time in a month and it is in great shape. The fairways are clean and the greens are perfect. If you have a chance to get out there soon, then do it. For around 40 dollars with a cart is a great deal and you will be challenged.

The course is what I would describe as a "country course", which basically means the rough is patchy and quite long. Missing the fairway by a foot or two and it's easy to lose a ball. The greens are very fast and well maintained which is why the rough being the way it was seemed off. Even the fairway seemed off, maybe it was the type of grass. But all in all, the price is good for what you get, 27 holes and the layout are pretty challenging. The staff was excellent and very friendly. It was my first time there so maybe the course needed some maintenance and it's usually in better shape. I'll try again for sure.

Five of our men's group showed up to play and since it was such a lousy day and not busy, they let us play together. Almost got it in but the rain started on the 17th hole. Lots of fun anyway. Great course in great shape! Staff was very friendly.

I've played here three times and I will continue to return. The 27 holes all have large greens that wiil test your putting skills if you're approach shot is not near the flag. The pace of play has been fine and all the staff I've encountered have been very friendly.
