Great Course

The distance is not crazy long and the scenery is great. Perfect pace and value for the money.

Fall maintenance and mix-colored flagsticks

First time at this course and we were met with most tees arrested and no too markers to designate blue white and championship tees. Also, the red white and white blue flags were hard to see from the fairway. Course was very challenging and fairways wew in great shape. Most Greens were just aerated causing many bouncing putts, You should lower the price when you do all this maintenance. Staff was great.

Marshalls in the course would be good.

The pace of play was held up by a foursome that would not let anyone through.

Beautiful layout and enjoyed the play..
However, no Rangers were around to keep pace of play going..
What ruined the round was was waiting 2 and 3 deep to Tee off..waiting 10 minutes to tee off was terrible..no one too tell the three some ahead of the twosome ahead of us..they should not be hitting two balls off the tee every hole...
Terrible!!
Hope this changes..would love to come back!!

Good public course but sometime slow pace.

Every hole has something interesting, and I also like it reasonably priced and right in the neighborhood. On a good day, things could move along well, however, every once in a while whenever there is a slow group, everyone would suffer the long waits.
