I really enjoy the variety of holes with the 3 nine hole courses. Staff are always friendly and helpful. I generally am there by 0630 and done by 0830 including waiting as staff preps the courses for the day. I would say that the sand areas need some attention and some greens hurting due to the weather but overall a comfortably challenging fun course with very friendly staff.

Please cut the grass

Course has nice layout with some very challenging holes, but overall not too difficult for the average golfer. But conditions were as bad as I've seen them here. Tee boxes were weedy with very long grass. On several tee boxes the grass was longer than the tee, even when sticking your tee barely into the ground. On one tee box you could see that the mower had gone over 1/2 of of it and completely ignored the other half. Greens were slow, and rough & grass on some parts of fairways far too long. We could not find balls in the rough, or sometimes even in the fairway. Could be much better.

Good value for money. Some tee boxes need some work but greens and fairways in good shape. Will definitely play again!

Tall grass everywhere

In fairness to Cardinal Creek, there has been a lot of rain in the area. But, some fairways the grass was tall and hard to fine your ball plus cart paths only. They should have posted or email the conditions or just closed for a day to get the course playable.

Hi, I am the Manager of Cardinal Creek and i am sorry to hear that you has a less than desirable experience. I can only tell you that due to the 7 inches of rain we had between April 30th and May 3rd 2019 we were unable to get everything cut and picked up by the weekend. I hope that you come back and see what the true potential of Cardinal Creek is when we don't have Extreme weather Conditions as a factor. Thank you for your honest feedback and hopefully in the future you will change your opinion and give us a better review.

Course Was Soaked

I have played this course before and intend to play it again. When we played, serious rainstorms had unfortunately saturated the course from several days before. No fault of the course whatsoever. It was cart path only, and I understand why. Nice people run the place, and they are trying hard to do their best.
