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.

Pace of play was not well, course was way overbooked. No player assistants ensuring people were keeping up pace

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.

Slow day!

I have played this course a few times and the pace has been more than adequate. Today I arrived and was told that they put two tournaments out in front of me. Very slow rate of play nearly 5 hours. Other than that it’s a beautiful course with great staff

Great course

Would love to play this again. Course was in wonderful condition. Greens had recently been aerated but did not affect play. Wonderful day.

Greens aerated and topped dressed

Usually play course twice a year. Greens were terrible due to aeration and top dressed. Disappointed I wasn't informed about the conditions prior to playing.
