You can see that this course has a lot of potential but it is lacking money and staff .. it needs a lot of TLC... you need to get it for a very good rate !

It wants to be good...

This course has a good layout that wants to be very good! However, the greens are pretty severe and there was pretty dicey pin placements for a daily play day —#15 was a borderline joke.

The bunkers on the front 9 are completely different than the the back 9...bare spots in fairways and greens.

On the plus side, staff was great and gave us an impromptu $10 discount. Would play this course again for $69, IF I didn’t know of other courses in the area.

Nice course at good rate. Greens were slow but with high winds in this area speed needs to be controlled.

Perfect weather

Played DD for the second time today.

Course is in good condition but the pace was slow.

Wanted to pair with another twosome but they had anxiety and preferred to play alone.

Course Starter allowed several twosomes on the course and this made the pace difficult.

Need Marshals that will do their job.

Needs work

PROS:

Greens were very challenging and good condition.

Staff was friendly and helpful.

Restaurant was empty at 1:30pm, food was average and waitress was nice.

CONS:

Fairways were full of cut grass and first cut off fairway was very deep. Hit a ball off fairway, even 6" and your ball is gone.

Sand traps had water pooled in center.

Mushrooms growing in first cut.

Final word:

This course has great potential. Better maintenance would bring it up to 3+Stars

Got a great deal at $25 per round...so for $25, I really can't complain to much.
