greens weren't very green

There wasn't much of a difference in grass height from the fairway to the rough. Greens were in very poor condition (many of them were shaved down to sand.

Tee boxes were in very rough shape and not cut whatsoever. You were either hitting off taller grass or just the dirt on the tee boxes.

Not being maintained

Very nice starter and staff. I like that you can use a driver on most holes and the wide fairways are very forgiving. Unfortunately the greens among the worst I have ever seen. The tee boxes are not level and poorly maintained. The sand traps are overgrown and don;t look to have been maintained all year. I hooked a ball onto the north course and it wasn't even mowed. There are much better options for a $35 walking round. The nice part is that due to conditions and price the course was not very crowded. Despite all the condition issues I will play it again because it is convenient for me. The wide fairways are almost like being at the driving range and are good for practice. Hopefully the course improves but I wonder if it will be turning into strip malls soon.

It is what it is

I mean. You get what you paid for. I have played worse but this thing has been let go. The greens need work. There literally is no fairways The layout is good but it just is beat up. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. But at the end of the day for 45 bucks with cart you can’t expect Augusta. It allows you to play a cheap round. I won’t be back unless they fix the course but it is what it is

Terrible and Run Down

Worst Greens I have ever played on. Literally dirt and sand on 75% of them. Fairway first cut rough was uncut in most areas, and where they were cut, the dead grass clippings being so thick made it very difficult to find a ball with the amount of it all over.
Shouldn't pay more than $15.00 for 18 holes to play here.

Not worth the time or money

I was very disappointed in course conditions since this was supposed to be a country club. It was extremely unkept, the greens were mostly had dirt and sand. I do not recommend going to play there.

Condition of the course was just fair

Condition of the course was just fair, This is the second time I played the golf course. I played earlier in the year and the course had not been mowed fairways were very long. I decided to give it a second chance things have been improved but overall the courses in that very good shape.

Conditions Are Brutal

Been playing this course for the last 5 years or so. Was always in decent shape. Maybe 3 out of 5 stars. Played there today and thr people who are saying "quit complaining" are in the wrong here. Conditions only are really 1.5 out of 5. Greens are fair, fairways ehh, rough and tee boxes are brutal. This course has so much potential but the owners are either cheap or don't care. For $45 on the weekend and knowing this course I'm not expecting the world but even as a 16 handicapper I can tell this course has seen better days

Ok for money

The course itself isn’t bad, two greens were very rough though with large areas of non-grass.

Course is like jumping into the 80s

Course feels like time left it behind. Tee boxes are in awful condition. Fairways are even worse. So many other courses that are more worth the 40 dollars.
