Well maintained, green, challenging but not a long course

Lovely course in immaculate shape considering the dry and hot conditions. Haven't seen a greener course this summer. If you can get a deal it is worth the cost, or just go after 2pm. No problems with bugs during our beginning of August tee-off. Some golfers need to replace their divots though. Overall a great time.

Nice course but, 5 balls being played by group ahead, because they’re members

It’s a nice course well maintained sure. But if you’re not a member prepare to be a second class golfer. The group ahead of me was playing 5 people five balls. When I asked the drink cart if this was normal the first question she asked me was am I a member... do members have extra rights to hold up the course and play players - 5 balls???

Booked on golf now was told it would have a cart. Arrived no cart, Golf now was a pain to deal with.

In short it’s a good track sure, but the service is subpar, gold now is a pain to work with and I’d in future play another course where you are treated respectfully, the game is respected, and not through golf now.

Beautiful course

This was our first time playing this track. It was in pristine condition. Beautifully manicured with nicely kept flower beds throughout. I played from the tips and still found the course not that long. There are a couple of reachable par fives and a couple of drivable par 4,s. love the 18 th hole...only 252 from the blues but still a nice challenge. Staff were super friendly. We would return to this course.

Unfortunately I couldn't play and get a rian check

I don't golf enough to warrant a membership with Golf Now and have the "worry free" option when "life happens". Due to an emergency, I had to cancel my round and eat the cost without being able to rain check at the course. Not going to use this service again...Under Par was understanding and totally refunded on another round that was scheduled for the following day.

Beautiful day, slow round, strange layout

Got a hot deal and decided to try it out - $70 a person with a cart. Price was fair although I would not recommend paying full fare after experiencing. Overall an average course with cool historical significance but there were several short par 4s that are reachable from the tee. This caused some slow downs while we waited for the groups ahead to clear. Only 1 par 5 on each 9 didn’t offer much variety. However, the course was in good shape, and the greens were pretty small so very challenging. Might play again if I’m in the area and the rate was favourable.
