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.

Construction going on and course condition was bad

I been playing this course for several times but i felt the condition of the course was very poor and the construction going on on the starter and bathroom area affected it even more.

I used to hold small tournaments here but will reconsider since I dont know when the construction is going to end.

5-Somes

I was moved to a tee time 10 mins from my purchased tee time, there were all 5-some groups teeing off, started at 143pm at 655pm it was horrible!! Not to mention everyone who plays there feels they should play from the blue tees, most of the groups I watched tee off should be playing from the red tees.. something needs to get done about this, I see this at every course. I am a 7+ handi, I out drive most of the people I play with from about 40+ yards, I only hit about 270 most of the people i play with only hit about 220 if they are lucky.... so frustrating

Serious Potential

Perfect weather in between bad days, might explain the appearance of so many. A little confusing at the start because of the layout and lack of signage. The play moved very good, exceptional for what I expected. Appears some renovations are under way. This course has some real potential if the county puts some money into it. The greens are tiny, hard and fast so short game practice is a given
