I hadn't played this course in several years, but the price was good so I thought I'd try it. Bad move...

The course is not being watered properly - even the tees were dead grass and dirt. The only bright spot were the greens - they are in great shape. However, there is almost no green grass to be found anywhere else.

Whoever owns this course is trying to cut costs everywhere. There is no real pro shop, and they don't sell new balls according to what I heard the bar and grill employee (who doubles as the prop shop guy and tee time checker) tell another golfer.

I don't see this course staying in business much longer if they don't start watering it.

This was the worst course I have ever seen - and I've been to North Dakota. The entire course was dead grass except for the greens. It cost $9 but I should have given that money to a homeless man near the entrance.

I won't go back unless I become wheelchair-bound. The dead grass created a nice, smooth surface for wheels.

I have played this course when they had three 9 holes. It was a great course and shape was good. I go back once in a while and this place is a last resort stop if you can’t find a place to play. The staff is amazing. The course is another thing. Dead the grass is so dried out that it looks like dust flying from the cart when driving. I do believe they are closing this place so that may be the reason but it’s been this way for a while. Never really in great shape. If you pay more then 20 bucks get your money back. If closing then it’s sad to see this place go.

This course has some awesome views and a decent layout. Unfortunately it’s in awful condition. Fairways nothing but dead grass. Tee boxes all dead grass and sand. Two pin flags had holes in them. No on course maintenance workers seen, which explains why in such poor condition. Another player said the course was on the verge of closing due to financial problems. I spoke with an employee who confirmed this. Saw 4 five-somes, 2 of which were in front of my wife and I. Pace so slow and condition so poor didn’t finish round. There are 4 tee boxes at each hole but score card only shows three. Very disappointed that Golf Now has this course in its inventory. Weeds everywhere and bunker sand was like concrete.

This may be the worst golf course I have ever played in terms of its condition. It is abysmal. Another player we talked to said the course is getting ready to close and so they’re doing no maintenance on it whatsoever Four instance the fairways are completely brown weeds are everywhere tea boxes are nothing but sand and dead grass and so on. I think you get the point. I am deeply disappointed that Golf now even has such a property available to play. This course has shaken my confidence in the credibility of golf now

The course ain’t too bad. If could use a little more TLC. The real problem is finding your way around. I suspect the course names have changed since nothing matched my gps watch. There appears to have been three nine hole courses at one time. I know that trying to find my back nine. A sign indicates a course but when you get there it’s just winding cart paths. Wasted a lot of time wandering. Even after getting directions to the back, I missed an obscure sign and spent more time wandering. By the time I found my way, A threesome jumped in front of me. I should have expected this since a couple asked me for directions to the back nine when I arrived at the clubhouse. I had no clue then having never played there before. They should consider closing the route to the closed course, at least remove the signs leading you there and make the u-turn after the tunnel conspicuous.

The driving range, tee boxes and fairways were dead grass and dirt. Greens were in poor condition also. It looks like it hasn't been watered in months. I purchased a "hot deal" and that was a total waste of money and time. I wanted to play the course in advance for the golf now deal caddy that I purchased, but am requesting a credit due to the poor conditions of this course.

Was looking for a cheap course before I had to fly home. Their fairway “grass” was non existent. $30 course at best. Their greens were nice but not receptive. Staff was nice. Wasn’t expecting much for $60 but didn’t expect to see brown fairways.
