Staff overcharged upon arrival claiming some issue with Golf Now not playing the correct rate and then charged us more than what was advertised. Starter was disorganized, a poor way to start the round. Course conditions were ok but still needs work. They made the green fees right in the end as we had to complain to get the issue fixed. Won't be back if this is how they treat their customers.

Greens were slow, pine placements were challenging. Fairways were in good shape and the rough was a challenge to hit out of at times. Some blind holes and shots.

Good test would return now that I have more course knowledge.

This course is nothing to write home about but, decent for the value if booked through GolfNow. The regular green fees do not pair well with the course, clubhouse, etc unless they're looking to build a new clubhouse with the overcharge fees.

Pace of play on the front 9 was great, no one behind us. The back 9 we caught up to 2 four somes and waited on 14,15 and 16 for about 5 minutes before each tee off. Course is in good shape considering the dry weather the past week.

Walked the course and by hole 12 i wish i got a cart. Was fun overall and will be back.

I've played here several times, I've never been liked the course that much, but the price is a good draw.

General notes - pace, etc:

The clubhouse is simple and does the job. It's not fancy and they don't try to be. They know they're a cheap course but still treat customers well and offer decent value. In the mornings the pace can be decent, unless you get caught behind certain entitled groups. Other times of day the pace can be ok or pretty slow. There's a range, but you need to bring your own balls, so generally either warm up elsewhere or don't warm up.

Conditions:

The course conditions are generally pretty good. Greens are consistent and moderate speed; however, apparently no one fixes ball marks. I was fixing five per green - those where just the ones near my line. Fairways and rough were in decent condition - all the rain helped ensure they were green. The bunkers were a weak point - they needed stirring as it was like hitting off of clay.

Course layout:

This is the part that keeps me from coming back for a fast weekend morning round. I find the course dull. Straight hole - with a bunker or two around the green. That's the formula. There are some dog legs, but for the most part it's monotonous. The fescue that comes in on some holes doesn't help with pace - it's not horrible, just an annoyance.

Straight holes - maybe a bunker or pond out of play:

1, 2, 3, 6, 9 (mostly straight) 10, 12, 14

You'll be dying of boredom by the turn. I was and walked off after 9 on my last visit because it was slow and boring.

I found the price quite high considering there are other nearby courses that are better designed.

I was looking forward to playing here but was disappointed with staff and price. I booked through GolfNow and was quoted one price and when I arrived for my tee time, the price was higher than I would have paid.

Booked through golf now as a 2 sum. It was walking rate decided to take a cart when we got there. 18$ per rider!? Okay I decided to ride even though it's a walkable course. My buddy decided to walk. The group ahead of us let us through on hole 2. To be respectful I told my friend to hop on the cart so we could speed up play a bit. As soon as we got to the 3rd hole the Marshall came to us asking for a credit card for my friend to ride. We explained what happened and then he actually told he was told to keep an eye on us. Pure rat. My buddy continued to walk and we enjoyed the rest of the round. I like the layout and the speed of the greens.

This course has one of the best kept greens I've ever played at and especially at that price. Not the biggest clubhouse, but decent size. At the end of the day, it's all about the course and it's amazing. It'll probably end up being my home course because I tend to go back alot more
