Much better

I’ve been coming to this course for a little over a year. And let me start off by saying that this course has come along way this past year. The greens are in great condition, Pace of play is slow and balls are frequently sliced. But it’s a fun 9 hole with 4 par 4 holes.

Best Course in the area Hands Down!

This is the best course HANDS DOWN. Employees are excellent, price is great and the course itself is excellent for using a driver and short game within a 9! Personally I don't want it to get crowded but this is an excellent course to hone your short game.

Maintainance

The course has a decent driving range where you play from mats. Plenty of people were coming out for the driving range.The pro shop looked half empty and run down.
This course has par 4s and 3s. Some holes were extremely short. My biggest surprise was that they had removed almost all the sand traps but left the indentation of where the bunkers were. Also, the signage was bad. Overall the course looked run down.
The club house looked the best maintained part of this location. The players and staffing were friendly. "Golf Attire" did not seem required.

Executive length courses are usually fun and a good practice round for short to medium length shots. This course is no exception. Very fun and the staff is very friendly.

Rough Greens

I really enjoy playing here. I like the design of the place. My only complaint would be the condition of a couple or a few of the greens. Rough would be the best way to describe the greens in question.

Nice Day for some golf, and the course looked great

I've been to this course a few times, and I think this is the best it's looked since I've played there. Great pace-9 holes in 1 1/2 hours walking, friendly staff-paid online and staff was great no attitude or issue, and nice eats & treats after the round.

Duarte is a good bang for your buck.

This coarse is always fun with a little bit of challenge. Only 9 holes but great for beginners and intermediate level golfers.

Fun little course

Good mix of short & typical par 3s sprinkled with par 4s a couple of which are drivable. Good golfers can leave their driver at home. I will definitely play this course again - great value for the price!

best nine hole course around!

If you are strapped for time and need to get some golf in, I definitely recommend this course. It has four par fours, so you can break out your woods and grip it and rip it!

Course good. staff unfriendly

I have played this course at least 10 times. I have never received as much as a "hello" or any other friendly greeting from the pro shop. It's as if they resented being there or having a job. The personnel staffing the bar & eating area are friendly, however.
