Course management 101

This course is excellent in teaching you fundamental course management skills. With hazards at pretty much every hole that easily penalize a player you really need to understand your distances with each club and learn where it’s safe to miss. The fairways and roughs need some work as there’s a lot of small rocks embedded in certain areas that can really do a number on your clubs.

Nice fast Saturday round

Course has been in very good condition lately and the greens have been running pretty fast too. Tee'd off on time for a quick 2 hour and 40 minute round.

Played twice love it.

My second time playing this course. I loved it even more this time maybe cause I had an 104 last time and an 84 this time. Some people complain about slow groups. I played both times at 630am Friday there is a group that is in front of me that has an old man with them I like this group they offered to let us play thru. Our group declined and told him he has earned the right to take his time and play we are in no hurry we where a paired 2some and it was another 2some behind us so we asked if they wanted to join us that put some space between us an the group behind them. I just enjoy the game love this course the staff and the people that play here. I will be back soon. It really is a 5 star place for its location,price, atmosphere, and hospitality.

River View

Great course for the price. Very challenging. Fairways are in decent shape and greens roll true. Not an easy course but a fun one for sure

Ok Course, Funky Layout

Played this course with my son today and was very happy with the pace of play. On a Sunday, 10 am tee time, we finished in just under 4 hours. The course has a very weird layout, making you cross back and forth what looks like was formerly a tiger and now a dried out sand hazard. Course was not in the best shape, patches of hard dirt with no grass throughout the course. Greens were decent, but a little slow. Overall, had a good day with my son but probably wouldn’t play this course again.

Convert to Executive Course // Bendway Weirs

The staff was great! Greens are good. Fairways, not so much. However, in fairness the course appears to be impacted by the river which meanders through center of the course. The dry river beds and banks cause havoc, leaving much of the course in abnormal or unplayable conditions.

Considering the strength of this course lies in its greens - one idea would be to invest in redesigning into an executive course, which could reduce the fairway footprints and increase the surface area of the green conditions. Installation of bendway weirs and reinforcing river bank fairways behind them would do wonders for this course! I know, I know, crazy suggestion. Would require large investment. But just and idea...

Short but tough

Really tight fairways and odd tree placement. Also the “river” is a huge line of sand. You can find you ball, but you should take a penalty and drop. I wish they had more signs..” stay on path” directions of the holes as a couple were confusing

Hot Saturday morning round

With temps expected in the high 90's to 100 an early morning round was the only real choice. Course was in fairly good condition and the greens ran extremely fast for this course. Round ran fairly quickly with no real stoppages occurring.
