No sand in bunkers

Bunkers are clay. Greens and tee decks are well maintained. Weather was very hot, but could walk the course in cooler weather.

Walking on the Sparrow is fun, scoring even better no beverage cart very disappointing.

The course is in very well maintained shape. The pace of all greens pretty similar. Bad omen today beverage cart was being towed across our first fairway..We never saw it again, too bad. Very hot and humid today.

Great 18 hole walk, course in great shape except the traps

The traps had very little soft sand and too much water, the cart person didn’t arrive until our last 3 holes. Course in great shape otherwise.

Course has good layout

But that’s about it ... Grass was burnt or it was mud. Greens were well maintained. Staff wasn’t overly friendly

Great price - Great Course

The course is in great shape.
Don’t let the score card (par 67) fool you, it’s a great course with tough greens. Will definitely be back again.

Good value for short course

Greens and fairways in great shape for dry conditions. Traps are unplayable. Cart option would be nice.
