It's a nice course, wonderful staff, and has challenges with bunkers around the green. Fairway are open. It is a good course for players to play.

Fun little course, great driving range. I played in 2 hours without rushing. Pace of play is big here and with that the staff are really really pushy about it. It is the only thing that I didn't like.

I was kind of expecting a course that was run down, dry fairways, carts that were from a decade or two ago. I was expecting that because all I paid was $22 plus the minimal booking on GolfNow. I was willing to take the chance though because I wanted to play an old school course with history from the Rat Pack era. The course is very well maintained and the cart was nearly brand new. Really, the course was in very good condition. The fairways were green, lush and well maintained. The greens were great too. And they challenged me which is what I like. Two thumbs up for the owners and the folks who manicure the course. I will definitely play this again, and again and again. Great value all around!!!!!!!!!

Solid little course. The staff were friendly an helpful. The course was pretty quiet so we could play at our leisure. I Hit a pool and a house and saw some old dude in a string Speedo in his backyard ..gross... other than that it was a pretty good day.

For the price we paid this course was a super deal. Great staff greets you in the parking lot with a cart, no wait for the entire round, and the greens and course was in really good shape. Definitely recommend it for a good round at a reasonable price.

This course is an oldie. Pretty short and narrow with smaller than average greens. The condition of the course is very good to excellent and the value is superb. If you’re a beginner, it’s a good place to start (but don’t play slow). If you’re advanced, it’s a good place to play and challenge your accuracy. A great place all around!

I played this course a couple years back. At the time it was a goat ranch. I dont remember but there could have been a serious water restriction at the time. I wasnt going back until I seen the reviews. Wow, what a change for the better. Fairways are good, greens are good and just the right speed. A couple are dangerous if you land your ball in the wrong place. Bathrooms were clean. I played there two days in a row. Dont get me wrong. Its not a long or premier course. However, this is a great target course. As long as they keep there prices in line for what it is.....everyone should try it at least once.
