nice course

I've been playing this course for years and it is a very good course. The staff is always friendly and helpful. Some of the holes are unusual but fun to play. We started at about 10:10 and the play was a little slow. The front 9 took about 2.5 hours to play. Most people only played 9 so the back 9 only took us 1.75 hours to play. They have the basic hamburgers and hot dogs for lunch. There is a small old fashion pub. There is also an enclosed patio that overlooks the course that is very picturesque.

Winter golf

Nice that this course is open on December 29th! Cold winds were howling but the pace was good and the course was playable even after the heavy rain the day before.
We enjoyed our day on the course!

Not worth the $20

The course was a mud pit with balls plugging in some fairways. The greens were shaggy, rough more like mud, and the course layout is mediocre.

Pushy & Poor

I booked on line through GolfNow for a tee time for 2 players my husband is still learning to play the pro pushed us into a 4 some which I didn’t book and was rude and refused to listen to my reasoning and said he’d over booked and they were very busy and we have to play as a 4 some or leave without a refund there were not that many players there they were not that busy and I didn’t see the reason to force us into a 4 some the course was covered in leaves and the same muddy hazards in the fairways that were there 2, and 4 and 6 weeks ago had grown larger and were not repaired we will not ever return there to golf and I do not recommend this course

Always improving

This course is always fun to play. It’s not Augusta National, but it’s got a challenging little layout that is harder than it looks. You have to think your way around and choose your clubs wisely. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Good guys.
It was pretty wet the day I played, but that’s to be expected after all the rain this summer. The greens were in fantastic shape, but were a tad slow. Every time I play here I see some minor improvement. The restaurant and pro shop remind me of being at camp. Rustic, plain and modest. Play the course to have fun and enjoy being surrounded by nature. Snobs need not apply.

First Time Playing

Treated like royalty!!

First time here!
Two groups of walkers let my threesome on wheels play through. Saved us from a 5+ hour round. Awesome folks here!

The hole on the back nine with the big tree splitting the upper and lower fairway needs to be redone. (#15). We had 2 awesome drives end up nearly unplayable on the right slope of the top fairway.

All in all , we had a blast and WILL BE BACK!!!

A little gem

After some of the reviews I had read I was not sure that going there was a good choice. But so glad we decided to play that course. The course was in great condition, fairways were impeccable,greens were interesting but fair, staff was very friendly and helpful, and the layout a pure joy. The last couple of holes are just a challenge for your game but so scenic it was a true pleasure. Go and play this course amazing rates, they deserve to have more golfers discover and enjoy this course. Thanks for a great round of golf

No concept of time

I arrived at the course at 10:30 a.m.for my tee time at 10:42 a.m. and the group I was going to end up playing with was already out on the course playing the first hole. Which caused me to miss even getting a score for the very first hole. If a tee time is at 10:42 a.m. then it’s at 10:42 a.m. plain and simple. I don’t care if it was extra busy that day. I would understand if I was late but I was early.

Country course

Rural little country course. Slow play we were paired with a guy and gal that were beginners but nice people. Pace destroyed our games but great weather on a Sunday afternoon and a $20 greens fee soothed our egos. Give it a chance, nice family owned "country" course.
