Back After Many Yesrs

It has been a few years, many, since I have played here. Now remember why I liked it. Great staff, friendly from bag drop to heading for home. Course was in wonderful condition and allowed some long putts to drop. Starter and Marshalls very helpful and made sure we had lots of water. Public course that acts and feels private.

Heavy penalty for not hitting the fairways

The course is always in good condition and staff is friendly and accommodating. But after a heavy week of rain, the roughs were very thick and tall. They should have considered an extra mowing to make it fair to play. Lost lots of balls in the tall grass and struggled to get the ball back in play. The grass is mowed on Weds, so you may want to keep that in mind when booking a reservation.

Great par 9

First time playing at Sportsman and a great surprise. Nice 9 hole course and in a good condition for this time of the year. Not a lot of water in play, but challenging greens. Will definitely come back in the summer.

Hot weather

Above average course

We booked this course last minute and were pleasantly surprised that the course of play was fast and the course in good conditions with some nice wild flowers. The course is relatively easy but has enough traps/water to make it interesting.

Nice place, fair value

Im not sure if it is always like this but it was pretty open on Saturday. Played 9 holes in about 1hr 45. Course and greens were in great shape and staff was helpful. This was my first itme here and I plan to return.

Love this course

The one thing I like about this course as is it not a par three I think there's two par 3 , one for five and the rest are all par 4 . Great course that can be played in 2 hours.
