This is a $20 golf course, if you can get on cheap, go for it but don’t go out of your way to play here.

Arrived early before Tee time. But no carts were available. Had to wait 30 minutes past Tee time to get a cart. Course is supposed to be getting carts replaced with new batteries Time will tell.

Staff was unfriendly. Course conditions were awful. They didn’t have enough working carts so we had to wait for other golfers to get done to get a cart. This course is cheap but would rather pay double to play at a decent course. I guess you get what you pay for!

Had to wait for a golf cart. After waiting cart died on fifth hole, had to wait again for a new cart, unbelievable but second cart died on the 14th hole, by this time things were pretty aggravating...

Son and I decided to try something new, and were sadly disappointed. The entire facility is in a state of disrepair. This could again be a nice course, but would take a great deal of time, money and maintenance. Its located in the middle of a state park which is on the edge of a pretty dicey area. I've seen it listed since for $10 including cart, and its still not enough to make me return.

This course has a lot of history with it. 1938 built, 1 if 8 black owned golf courses in the USA.

Once you warm up to the staff, they warm up to you.

Plenty of helpful golf advice and lots of Golf stories too.

I enjoy this course a lot, not the best condition, but good for Middle to High Handicappers. So unless you need a super tough course, this one will challenge you.

Course not in the most desirable location. Staff had no idea we booked through golf now and didn't seem to care. Just told us to get a couple carts and go golf. Nice course and definitely worth the cost of the hot deal. Will be going back.

First and foremost I had a fantastic round both physically and mentally! It was an absolutely beautiful day! I finished working earlier than I expected. I checked to see if I could find a last minute not deal on a Sunday! I was elated to find one at a course I had not played in over 30 years so it was a "new" first time for me. Arriving at the course, they had no clue I was coming thus they had no cart for me. They were very nice and assured me a cart would be coming in any minute. 45 of those assurances past. I am not upset just stating my experience. I shot my best round in 30 years almost having a hole in one which would be a first. You asked, I replied. Everything happens for a reason. I love your VIP membership.
