Tees and Fairways need work but twice a day on Golf Now, you can play 9 holes for as low as $10 with a cart. Play is always slow. Only use driver 2 or 3 times tops.

The third hole par 5 has a lot of hardpan ground with no grass in front of the green. The par 5 5th hole has the same thing to the right front. I suggest putting topsoil and seeding the area or sodding it.

I will play again next week.

Pace was great, played as a single with a cart.

Some burnt out areas just off fairways. Tee boxes need grass. Trap I was in needs work (3" of sand in one place and 1/2" in another - yes I did not make it out of the trap on my 1st shot). Staff was good. Restaurant was to hot to stay. Their reason was they just opened - seems to me they would have the A/C on early enough so it is a pleasant experience for customers when they are open for business.

I will return on a Golfnow Hot Deal as course is local and a good value.

Course is very challenging. Long Par 5s, Doglegs and water hazards. There's even an Island hole. We actually played a second round and I played 6 shots less. This was about the 7th time I play there this year. The challenged keep me coming back.

This was once an 18 hole course that delivered in all areas, especially fun. Since it has gone to 9 holes it has been a roller-coaster. Some days good, some days bad. The greens are furry most of the time and the delineation between rough and fairway hard to determine. I'm sure they do the best they can with what they have but it does suffer. Hole 1 remains unchanged but the netting down the right side is unattractive. The second hole has as many homes down the right but no netting. Why? Hole 4 makes no sense at all while #5 is pretty much a remaining stalwart from the original. The island green at 8 remains but is such a large target now from such a short range that the hole is really uninteresting which is pretty hard to do for an island green. The tees are very poor. Even for a quick 9 in the area there are better options.
