Nice links course
The course was in great shape even though we have had almost no rain in a month. It is a true links layout so the absence of trees helps in the fall because there are no leaves. The tee sheet was full but we still played in 4 hours.
Took a day to play some new courses. Got a good deal so we decided to play. Staff friendly and efficient. Even with the dry conditions this summer the course was in great shape. Will definitely be back
Course was in great shape and very playable. Not the most scenic, but tees, fairways and greens are well maintained.
Course I’m really good shape and they’ve done a nice job of citing back/down some of the high heather to make it a little more open and playable. The Golf Boards are a fun option as well.
Beautiful links style course
Well maintained course that is very beautiful with its rolling terrain. The area with the surrounding hills and river really frame the course nicely. A fair and challenging course. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. One of my favorite courses in the Midwest.
Nice course, very playable
Love playing this course. It always seams to be in good shape. Like most golfers I like short par fours, they are fun to play. This course has one or two to many but that’s okay they are fun. Big greens and nice fairways and tee boxes. The only negative is there isn’t a driving range. I will still play this course whenever I can. Love it.
Very fun day
Very good course design. There is a lot of mounding and waste bunkers if you miss the fairway. This makes your next shot difficult, but you can find your ball at the same time. It has large rolling greens that are in amazing shape. This is not the hardest course I have played, but very fun and gives you some things to think about. .
Disappointing for what they charge
The course is very plain....not at all interesting .
Me and my daughter played 18 in about 3 hours...the greens have worn spots on them and the edge's of the fairways were un-mowed....for the money we spent..I have played other courses that were a lot more fun....and had a lot better layout...just because a course is associated with a casino doesn't mean it's exceptional.......doubt I'll ever play this course again.
Excellent facility, super friendly staff. Course is in excellent condition. Pin placements were tournament tough, but overall excellent course.
A great layout with the best rolling greens in the tristate
Great condition, great course. Friendly workers. Terrible concessions for food at the turn or after.
First time playing the course today, absolutely gorgeous....plush fairways and very true greens....it’s a pretty forgiving course with plenty of room to operate off tees on most holes....but if you miss the rough and high grass will make you pay....we got it for 40.00 and it’s well worth that....pull up and they grab your bags out of the car for you and get your cart ready for you while you check in...beautiful scenery throughout the entire course....will definitely be back for another round, especially if we can get it for 40.00 again
First time playing
Course was in excellent shape, greens were faster than most. Got a good deal on Golfnow. People we friendly and a good hot dog!
Decent Links Style Course
The course has some linky-character with some elevated greens and mounds along the way. The sand was very thin, as was the grass around the traps. The course was also very wet, and while it never really got close to the Ohio River, I can see it being wet a lot and for a while after it rains. Greens did not break as much as they looked but rolled true. All in all, it'll keep you thinking but it's not a knock-your-socks-off kind of place.
I have noticed some changes
I had played this course at least 25 times in 2011-2012. It was in much better shape then and the staff was much better then. The overall decline of the course and the casino is to be of concern. I can tell from the play that it is still a popular destination. I like the links format, the small greens and the green elevation changes. It is a fun day; just not what it used to be.
Links style course that is always in great shape. Course does not play very long but can be tough if you are not accurate off the tee.
