Nice Track

I played the Blue Course, weather was perfect, some slow players on the first 12 holes then it cleared up. Course in great condition, fairways and greens excellent, rough is tough and wet. overall a great day.

Rainy day

Course was in very good shape for wet conditions. I play this course a few times a year. $26 for 18 w/cart is a good deal. Pace of play was great. Rain kept many people away. The blue has a more traditional lay out than the gold. The gold has more gimmicky holes which are fun the first couple times playing them. The bar inside is good for after your round. Golf dome is also nice for a warm up before play. I would like to play the emerald course more but it never seems to be open. I would recommend playing this course St twilight tee times but not sure I would pay premium prices to play.

Green Garden - Course in good shape for Aprol

The greens were in great shape and I enjoyed a 70 degree day, which was perfect for April as I caught one of our very few good weather days. I had no complaints regarding the course conditions in April.

Course with racist history unadressed

The course has a notorious past for known racist behavior and it was my understanding that the course was closed some time ago due to various reasons. Seems like the issues with racism have not been addressed. While playing our round in under 4 hours we were attacked verbally by a fellow golfer who was wearing knickers. He felt that we were playing too slow for him and used all kinds of racial slurs while talking to us.I will probably not play here again until this course proves to be more friendly to minority golfers.

Solid for the money

Course is well maintained but some traps need work. Hole positions are difficult, making the course a bit harder than it might appear. Green fees are priced right, always under $50, but range is a bit pricey. It seems like the other golfers on the course are always friendly and I feel like the ettiqutte here amongst players is the best of any course. My biggest criticism is the course is understaffed. My biggest endorsement is that it's the best value on the southside.

Course is improving but....

The course is improving over prior years, however, there is still a bit too much weed growth to call the course beautiful. Simple fertilizer with weed killer would really help. Dead ash trees have been removed so the course looks much, much better than last year. Fairways are in pretty good shape, as are the greens. The course (gold or blue) plays well and fellow golfers are always friendly. Snack shops around the turns are now open (hurray!) and there has been a snack cart out each time we have been there. This is helpful and always worthy of a good tip. We were scheduled for the Blue course, but 5 foursomes of high school boys walking were ahead of us. (Agh!) As we approached the tee area, their coach asked us why we were there and told us we would be very slow. Quite odd. We returned to the starter, who allowed us to move to the Gold course where we had a good pace of play. The course is hooked into YamaTrack, but be sure your iphone is fully charged as the carts do not have chargers.
