Soggy Day

3 days of rain prior to our round found the fairways very soggy on the Prairie course. Lots of puddles and roped off areas. Greens in really good shape after a few days of rain and few payers. Staff is always nice.

Great Scoring Track

Sweet links style layout providing great opportunities to score. Course is well maintained with good fairways, rough that can be penal and good greens. Staff is always friendly. Pace of play is very good, 18 in 4 flat.

Cart Fee

Beware of extra cart fees. It was my understanding that when I booked with TeeOff the cart was included because of the cart icon when booking. Upon showing up to the course the morning of, we had to pay extra for the carts. Carts weren't terribly expensive, just not an anticipated fee.

Great bang for the buck

One of my favorite courses... enjoy it as much as the more expensive ones nearby. Course was in excellent condition after a day and night of heavy rains.

Great Course - wrong price?

Course was in great condition. Windy day helped protect the links style layout. Pin positions were challenging but fair. My playing partner arrived before I did and paid for the round. Cost was much more than Golf Now price. A littler surprised by that.

Wide fairways pretty good greens

Overall a pretty good golf experience. The layout has some variety and the greens rolled at a good speed. The fairways are a little shaggy but I’ve played worse. When I play a course I’ve never played before I always ask myself would I go back. I’ll say yes

Walked

My Augusta National

This course is just fun! Yes it is wide open which makes it not the most challenging but it is still an average length course and you still have to make your putts. Every hole is birdieable but there are still bunkers and water that could punish you. The greens roll perfectly fine, and the fairways are always in great condition. This is my favorite course to play.

B+ value (33$ weekday AM)

Fairways and rough was in good condition for this point in season. The greens we really true and were fast.

This layout is very open if you want to be hitting a lot of driver with forgiving fairways. A lot of blind shots, which makes the course tonight. And there are also a good amount of bunkers and water.

Walked, took 3:25. Got tired due to many hills. Great exercise, but definitely affected our playing the last three holes.

Great value, never played traditional. Hope to get out there soon

Great course. Excellent value!

This course has become one of my go to courses in the area. The prairie course in particular. The course is currently in fantastic shape. The pace of play on a Sunday afternoon was very good. Finished in four hours exactly. For the money you can’t beat it around the area.
