Needs work done on fairways.

The fairways are in very bad condition. Clumps of dead grass everywhere so very hard to see ball. I really like Prairies but probably won't go back this year. Hopefully next year fairways and greens will be repaired.

Don’t bother

Over grown weeds everywhere. Sticky mud everywhere. Sewage water every few holes. You’re not missing much by not playing here, better off go somewhere else

Decent course for the price

Grounds were not in good shape. Slowest greens I’ve ever played. Can’t complain much for the price though.

Course in pretty good condition!

We played the front 9. There was only one green that needed attention (hole 6). On hole 9 there was still some VERY tall grass that needed to be mowed. All in all, the course was in pretty good condition.

What the heck!?!

Showed up for our tee time this morning and the gates were locked. There were about 20 players waiting outside and no one answered when you called the clubhouse.

Just wanted to play

The course needs a lot if work. If you can tolerate overgrown patchey fairways, the bugs will drive you insane. This was one of my first courses I played when I first started playing and it's sad to see it go downhill over the years. If they could just get a handle on the fairways, the course wouldn't be so bad. There's only so much you can do, but they can stand to do a bit more.
