Got off right away and maybe a 5 or 10 minute wait on about half the holes. The cart paths were in pretty bad shape but the greens and fairways were actually in pretty good shape.. I’ll be going back to play it again.

The worst place

Pace of play horrible, no rangers, hackers all over the place jumping from hole to hole, greens slow, fairways concrete, this place is a Warzone.

Gave Valley Ridge a Try

Greens were good. Fairways good. Sand nicely worked. Some tee boxes good, some chewed up. Cart paths were terrible: standing water, washed out, bumpy. Finding the next hole was difficult sometimes for golfers new to thye course.

Unbelievably Slow

Course was jam packed and terribly slow. It was in decent condition but waited forever in between shots. The group in front of me said that they are always full of people after 11am. I will not be going back.

Great afternoon

Today was a lot of fun. It’s a little on the short side which probably added to the fun. I’m not a long hitter so this course gave me a chance to score. Other golfers were very courteous and I thought it was a great value.

A Great Value

We bought the 3 year membership for our family, and we played last night. The course was in very good shape, and greens were better than I expected from previous years under past ownership. The course has come a long ways since then, bunkers were nicely raked and looked like some new sand was added. The fairways were mowed pretty tight and the greens rolled well, rough could be mowed a bit shorter, but I am just getting old and not so powerful.

Nice course for a great price

Course is in great shape some of the best in years. Pace was slow on a Sunday morning, 5 hours for 18, but that would be expected this time of year. If rough was cut down a little more before the weekend, the pace would probably increase. Cart girl hit us once per 9. Course runs through a neighborhood, with lots of great hole layouts and control was key. Great Value!

Terrible experience

Booked 2 persons and cart through Golfnow. We get there, 5 holes open, only walking available and would not let us use a pull cart to play the 5 holes unless we paid $6.00 to rent. We should receive a refund.
