Just seemed like the course is getting ready to shut down. For being early in the season, the grass is dry

Stay away - it's a dirt track

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.

Golf after the Apocalypse

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.

Not the best I have played

Price was very good, we thought. Upon arrival, we noticed the fairways were basically semi-desert. Greens were okay.

Desert and dry

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.
