We were playing at a very good pace until we hit the 8th of our 9 holes. The first tee typically does group classes on Saturdays for juniors and they preach courtesy and things like that however when we reached the 8th tee we saw the class for that hour. They were just teeing off and did not let us play through. We then proceeded to wait for 20 minutes for their 9 some to finish the hole, after we finished the hole we beat them before they teed off on 9 they still did not let us play through so we ended up leaving and will not be back on a Saturday afternoon anytime soon.

Gnats, Gnats and more Gnats

Round was dominated by hungry swarms of biting gnats. All else soon became secondary.

$24 cart rental fee was very high (Not included in Golf Now price.).

I recommend this course only with full disclosure -- 9 holes only, pricey cart fee, check the gnat status, don't expect too much, don't pay too much.

Greens were EXCELLENT; as good as any played this season to date. Fairways were also pretty good. Terrain is pretty rocky and sand traps are in un-maintained condition and unplayable on most of the course.

There could be a few more signs directing players to the next tee box or to clubhouse. There are no cart path so sometimes you just had to guess where to go next.

Greens are great, rest of the course needs a little help.
