We only paid $22 on a Sunday afternoon but the greens were pretty tough. Very bumpy. Very slow play on front nine 2.5 hours to play.

Grew up playing this course, what happened over the years? Poor to fair conditions of Greens and fairways. I was really surprised by the attitude and lack of help from the older gray headed gentleman at front desk whom I believe to be the Club Pro. What a jerk.

Love the layout but conditions were not favorable. I pass a lot of courses on my way here, it is not worth the drive to be treated so poorly at a mediocre course.

Our foursome thought tee boxes & fairways were good, greens were airated & need to fill in. We were only able to play 9 because of rain, they did give us all a 9-hole raincheck. With all the weather (rain) issues we thought course was good. I think a lot of courses are suffering a little because of weather related issues. I would go again.

Great course layout. Staff was friendly enough. Greens are a 4 out of 10. Aerated and sanded within the last month and haven’t grown in. Lots of dead spots. Love this course though.

No yardage’s or targets on the driving range, about 1/4 of the balls were cut and should be thrown out.

What happened to this golf course?? It was in the worst shape I’ve ever seen it today. The greens were horrible, the fairways were horrible, the tee box were dirt, and the old man that runs the front desk is a jerk! Not to mention they are asking people to pay a premium to play 18 holes with aaerated greens (35+).. I wouldn’t play here if they paid me! You’d be better off in a cow pasture!!

This was a beautiful course. However this date the fairways were not maintained lacking grass and hard.

The greens gone forget that they were aerated and the course failed to post this information but the greens are gone. On the bright side the pro shop has been remolded and except for the non caring personnel looked nice.

I usually enjoy playing this course because it is challenging and usually in great condition. This time, however, the greens were in very poor condition. I would recommend checking the condition of the greens before you go.

This course is nice and challenging but fair. The greens were not something that I believe I've ever played before and just about everyone would break at the cup and end up directly behind the cup. There was not too much trouble if you missed the fairway and ended up in the rough but if you missed the rough you can just about forget scoring. Pace of play was very good until the last couple of holes. The staff was okay at best and the amenities were about the same in the club house but i would say okay for a park.

Course in good shape for early spring transition. Plenty of awakening Bermuda grass to get a decent lie in the fairway. Greens good except depressions until Bermuda growing season really kicks in and they become smoother. Definitely recommend.
