Nice Course

This course is always fun and somewhat challenging. Unfortunately it’s still a little soggy out there but eventually it will dry up and will be even better.

Getting a bit better.

Walked 18 today .
The greens on the front are getting a bit better. Hope they keep it up next spring .
Course needs to be cut .
The holes on the back side were being aerated today.
They also spread a thin layer of sand on the backside greens which made putting difficult.
Can't complain much for $15.
Wouldnt pay more than that though.
Again, lets hope they continue maintenance on the greens next year.

Course in Poor Shape

Played yesterday and the counter man told me the greens were rough because of the City ( who owns the course) shutting off their water for a couple weeks in the summer for construction. The greens are demolished and you will have a hard time finding enough grass to putt on. The fairways are rough, lots of weeds, crabgrass etc. This course has not been kept up as it was first opened. A rundown jewel the city should refurbish or sell to someone who will kept it up.

Not the worst

This course wasn't amazing, but it really wasn't horrendous either. It is dedfintly in need of some maintenance that the city doesn't seem to want to provide. Some farways were great, while others were terrible. Same is to be said about the green. Tee boxes overall were in very good condition.

I think my only real complaint is the length! Both golf now and the course website need to update the parents and length. This is a short course with only 4 par four's with the longest post at 306 yards! With paying the hot deal price, I enjoyed my day quick day out (just under 3 hours for a twosome), otherwise I would not have been happy showing up to such a short course.

Not worth a do over.

Course was inexpensive which was good and the staff was very kind (Cathy at front desk). The course however had a confusing layout and was bone dry. Like the greens were brown and the fairways were rock hard. Made iron play difficult hitting off what felt like rock. Though it was cheap the courses condition makes it not worth it at any price.

Garden city

Reasonably priced, too many par 3,s at the same distance (150-160). A lot of winter kill which didn’t affect the putting that much, but does need a lot of work around the greens. Pretty average for a municiple course. Sand traps were actually pretty good. Sand was consistent. Good price with the golf now deal.

Mixed feelings

To be fair they have had to deal with flooding 2 of the fairways approaching the green where just mud and the rough was really long however we made the best of it and had fun but would not return

Rough course in bad shape

I have played this course is 2016 and 2017 and it has been declining over the last 2 years. Large patches of dirt with no grass on fairways. Weeds on greens. Feels like a zero-maintenance facility. Will never go back even if it is free.
