Great Greens

Overall for the price it was at average at best. Not very well maintained like it used to be. Definitely anything outside first cut of ruff, very tall and thick. The actual rough seemed to be not mowed for at least a week and the fairways in days. The greens were the best part of the course those were just about perfect for this this time of year. But it is in the worst shape I have seen it in years overall.

Didn’t even play

Booked a tee time online and drove 45 minutes to be told the course is closed for a tournament. Still haven’t received my refund from Golfnow. Common sense would tell me that if you’re closed for a tournament you would stop accepting tee times online. Who’s gonna reimburse me for gas and the convenience fee that non refundable?

Needs water

Greens were nice and fast. Fairways were hard pan and some tee boxes were dry and torn up. They need to water fairways and tee boxes.

Horrible greens

The greens were actually sand. I know the course has to aerate the greens, but I have played there before when that has been done and there was still grass on the greens. They should discount or at least have a side note of the course conditions before you book.

Fantastic staff

Course was in great shape for this time of year. Well manicured with solid greens. Staff was amazing all the way around. Kyle the new GM was exceptionally gracious and knowledgeable of the game and even took time out of his day to come help me work on my mechanics at the driving range after I got done with me 18. All in all, this is a great course for beginner golfers as well as seasoned players.

Great Layout

Great course! Love playing there but they stopped honoring GolfPass. Usually played there one a week but most of the staff was not friendly at all.

Good place play but slow pace.

Enjoyed my round . Played front nine by myself in one hour. Back nine was slow due to foursome ahead. Will play here again if I get good deal again on cost. Regular prices here to high for this course.

Great Day of Golf

We were fortunate to have booked a t time for early Saturday morning. We showed up almost an hour too early, but they let us go right on out.
We played at a really nice pace and played through a two some that was in front of us.
Eighteen holes in about three hours. There are some really long holes for this old guy, but there are others that a short too. Great fairways, greens and staff.
