Nice Conditions, Slow Play

Fairway and green are well maintained. Just be aware that there are always slow players in front of you. Be patient and don't expect fast plays, you'll be fine. Comparing to neighboring courses, the regular price is high on this par 29 course. I only play the hot deals.

Good Conditions

This is a fairly easy 9 hole course which has one slight dogleg. There are 2 par 4's and good size greens. The greens had been recently aerated but overall the course is in very good condition. The burgers in the Gold Dust Eatery on site were very tasty. Nice outdoor patio to enjoy the nice weather.

Sunken Gardens

Bad experience from the start. Woman in the pro shop charged us incorrectly based on our reservation through GolfNow. She caught her error when we were at #5 and literally came flagging us down in the middle of our round. Never seen anything like this before. Another group nearby were shaking their heads in disbelief. Anyway... course was what you get for public 9 holes. Par 3s are straight and should give you confidence in your game. Greens were a bit tore up as other patrons don’t seem to understand the etiquette of cleaning up after yourself.

Good Course, Good Hole To Buck Ratio

No complaints here, nice 9 hole course. The course is in a prime location. I will refer to my fellow golfers, and will be returning.

Nice little place

This is a fun little course with two holes that you will full out the driver. The restaurant/ Bar is being refurbished but snack shack is open. This is a good place for after work golf or just work on the short game.

Fun little course

This is a 9-hole course that has a good size driving range. If you get a lot of distance with your drives, you will likely only pull out your driver on 2 holes out of the 9. The holes have their nuances and challenges depending on your skill level. The course has lots of rolling hills and trees. (Funny that we will generally miss hitting the tree with a 2 foot diameter but hit the ones with a 2 inch diameter) The course is well maintained and currently offer's free replays if there are slots available. So, if you have the time and energy, you could play 27 or 36 holes for only $19. (push cart extra)
