Generous Fairways - Challenging Greens

Course in good shape. Enjoyable course with lots of wide fairways. Greens have lots of undulation, but in good shape. Friendly staff. Good pace of play.

Very forgiving course

A bit slow but a good round. It would of been nice to know that the greens were aerated before paying for the round today.

Like this layout

Played with 7 friends. We really like the layout. Fairways were in good shape, but greens were inconsistent - some were a bit shaggy, and a few tee blocks were burned out. I understand there was an issue with the watering system during the recent hot weather that led to the poorer conditions. The course was still very playable.

Nice track, slow greens

Not a memorable course, but priced right for a Sunday morning. Fairways were decent, but greens were definitely slow and “fuzzy”. Would play again at same price point.....

improving course

I have played this course many times. It has been taken over by new owners, and some improvements have been made. The traps, that used to be terrible, are now full of sand and very playable. The fairways and tee areas have also been over-seeded and show great improvement.

The greens are in need of some attention. They are very slow, and show some winter damage. I have always enjoyed the layout, with a nice variety of holes.

The staff is very friendly and accommodating.

I will play this course again many times this summer. Hopefully, the greens will improve.
