Good value

Course was in good shape considering no rain for weeks. Greens were in great shape. A little slow, but tolerable.

Deceptively Challenging

1st time playing and got Hot Deal. Well worth it. I was surprised by the challenging and some long holes from the blues. Slope rating of 130 is bang on. Green were nice but slow. Will play again and I highly recommend this course and Sparrow course.

Dry. Hidden water hazards.

Very dry. Dusty parking lot so don't wash your car prior to coming. No course layout map on the score card and no hole layout markers on the tee blocks so tough to play without losing balls into hidden ponds. Maybe the Sparrow is better but I won't be rushing to play here any time soon given the many golf options within 20 min of here. Staff was friendly.

Awesome

I love that there is a practice range, the putting green is similar to the greens, the greens are fast, I love this course, blue and white markers are far enough apart to completely change the round. I’m a happy golfer

Always in great shape

The course is in great shape , wish I had known that they had a member event as I was a single in a Hot Deal due to the other three golfers cancelling out. My only pet peeve with GolfNow VIP members and it is really starting to tick me off.. This has been ongoing this year , if you have no intention or may not want to play then don't book the Hot Deals , leave them for the golfers like myself that will actually show up. This is in no way intended for Cardinal Lakes as they run a great golf club and this is beyond their control. Golf Now wake up there are only a limited number of hot deals for these golf courses! I will be renewing my course membership next year and no more Golf Now.
