Course in pretty bad shape

There is no fairway :-(
Weeds everywhere which make it very difficult to find your ball unless you make it on the green. Course need major innovation.

Needs Maintenance

I played this course regularly in the early 1990s and finally came back recently. The course is not maintained very well, other than the greens, and it is really disappointing. One of the knocks was that their tee boxes had mats, but in the past the mats were in good condition. They are no longer. Course conditions were really poor with huge bald spots on most fairways and lots of muddy patches. The tee boxes that did not have mats were also not maintained.

I probably won't be back because of the poor conditions, which is a shame, because it is a fun course.

Needs work but fun to get out there

Course needs a lot of work in the fairways. Greens are typically decent. They also should really consider replacing the tee box mats.

Horrible greens!

Greens had been recently aerated, and had a LOT of sand on them. To take putting seriously today was impossible. This wasn’t made known, and if we had known, definitely would not have played. Teeing off from hard mats also really sucks.

On the plus side, breakfast was great and drinks were reasonably priced, which is unheard of for a golf course.

Back 9 Closed and punched and sanded greens!

Disappointed when we arrived after pre--paying for 18 holes through GolfNow. Front 9 was punched and sanded previous day. Back 9 was closed for same treatment. Asked about a refund due to closure and was referred back to GolfNow, but no direct contact info is given on their website. Still wanting refund for 9 holes. Help me out GolfNow! RefundNow!

Freshly aerated greens today

Putting today was like putting at the beach. They don't have greens, they have sands. Which I would not have a problem with, except that there is no mention of that when booking a tee time on golf now. That is complete BS. All other courses have the decency to put a aeration alert when you book a tee time. And because they didn't, they get 2 stars from me today.

Value, if booked with discount

There are many fairways that look like war zones. Factor that in before you pay $30 plus for a round.

They really need to make all holes with no mats and maintain the fairways a lot better.

Never again

Don’t fall for the price, not worth it. 3 different holes there Were 3-4 groups waiting on tee. Played 9 holes in 2.5 hours for an executive course. Layout very tight. Balls flying over head and matts for tee boxes are rock hard.

Hello, thank you for reviewing the course. We apologize for the delay of play during your round. This is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. With an uncharacteristically full day, we work hard to accommodate everyone who visits our course and allow our guest the chance to complete their rounds. With that in mind, we are working to best control pace and allow everyone to finish in a reasonable amount of time. We will continue to look for ways to improve.

A Nice Course and Friendly Surroundings

The conditions are nice and the course is laid out well with shade spots and only a few holes in need of repair. The shop and snack bar are nice as is the driving range. It won't be the best course that you will ever play, but certainly now the worst either. Each hole has a turf tarp, so no golf tees needed other than the rubber ones. I've been there twice and will return.
