Beautiful location, but the course conditions are atrocious. Badly diseased greens. Tee boxes are all beat up.

Very disappointed in course conditions

Course did not live up to other reviews that I've read. Most greens were in rough shape. Sand traps had not been maintained in some time. For the weather that we've had this season the course should have been in much better shape.

Nice course

nice old course near the city limits. Well kept with good layout. Course in good condition. Clubhouse a bit seedy, could use update. Staff friendly.

The pace of play was very slow. It took 2:50 to play front 9 holes. We only were able to play 14 holes before it got dark. Very disappointed that a ranger didn’t come around to speed several slow groups up. The only thing they cared about was taking our money.. Do not recommend playing in summer.

Save your money and play elsewhere

The title says it all. The greens were in very poor shape. I would play elsewhere if given the choice. There are other courses of better quality and value then here. Save your time and money.

Descent value for golf near the beach

Went to this course while on vacation. It was the best value in the area. I was pleasantly surprised with the course. However, the address on golf now was incorrect.
