Okay course

Tee boxes bad condition; fairways are good as long as you stay in them... Good luck finding your ball left or right of fairways. Greens are in great condition. Pace of play was somewhat slow but picked up second half.

Good public course

Playing city or county courses is a real gamble, just never know what you’re going 2 get. Fortunately, with the rain this past winter,, this course is shaping up nicely.. it’s very fun no matter skill level. Staff is friendly & today the course moved quickly, 4:15

Gridlock on the opening tee today at NOON.

Not sure if there was some glitch in their reservation system today but there was a foursome teeing off at noon. A threesome at 12:03pm and a two-some at 12:04pm.

This resulted in a gridlock on the first tee. Also, people who play here DO NOT FIX THEIR BALL MARKS. C’mon golfers. This is golf etiquette 101. Fix ball marks. Even if it’s not yours. I must have fixed 4-5 ball marks on almost every green today.

This course has three 9-hole layouts. So, issues such as the gridlock on the first tee shouldn’t be an issue, especially if there are 3 separate groups set to tee off within FOUR (4) minutes of one another.

Slow round

Very slow. Day after new year's maybe a lot of people are still off work or school. Too many fivesomes are let out at this course. And no marshall ever to monitor pace of play.

Good for practice

Pace of play is so slow no Marshal
They always over book which I dont understand because
You can always get tee time just walking in
It makes it worse they should really control tee times
Beware of the manager very unfriendly

Decent golf course

It’s decent golf course for the price. Fairway is wide and pretty straight.
Tee box need some work. Not level and missing too many turf. Green condition were good. Fairway condition were below average.
They let 5 some go out so pace can be slow.
Condition have improve alot past few years so I’m expecting they get better.
It’s reasonable cheap course to play.

Not great but ok

I have played here before. From my memory not much has changed. Fairways were okay, but getting to them was a nightmare. Very bumpy dried out areas. The greens were probably the best part of the day. Rolled really good.

Avoid unless you have six free hours to golf

Plan on having a 5-6 hour round of golf. Great GolfNow prices but you better have a lot of patience and expect to be backed up every single hole. Condition of course is always decent.

Enough already

This course is a solid course.. but way to crowded, took 3 hours to play the front nine. Too many people in groups and extremely slow pace of play. Didnt see one Marshal either or Cart lady. Will think twice before I play again.
