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.

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.

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!

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.

It was a nice course, but very congested. We were there on time but had to wait for several parties. I thought that the rate included a cart, but they didn't have any.
