Awful

At one point there were 5 different groups on the par 5. Nothing on the website stated on Wednesday’s 60 adults show up for their golf league. Not worth the money.

More long than challenging but very well-maintained. There are some bunkers but not too many are threatening. The water is there but never really in play. A very pretty course. A nice course for the price range.

Quality Challenge for the money

Rob Roy is always healthy and the greens roll true. House and Tree lined fairways require accurate tee shots and carefully judged approaches. Balls in or near the fairway are rewarded with quality looks and favorable distances into the greens. The widest fairway is approximately 30 yards wide, in contrast the Par 5 9th Hole’s fairway is a mere 10 yards wide in the landing zone. With that being said, the course provides numerous risk/reward options that will keep golfers of all skill level coming back for more. I highly recommend paying the $17 for an enjoyable weekday round!

Fun local course- legit par 5s.

This is a legit par 36 9 hole course. For just 10 bucks more you can go around again and make it 18 which is what we did. Fair pin placements UNLIKE most of the other courses in the area. Fun course and not too crowded.

Winter Bonus

Course was in surprisingly good condition for late December and weather was moderate enough for play (mid 40's). This added up to a very enjoyable experience.

Did not feel pushed

The course had a nice crowd and it was playing a little slow, but no one was pushing us to play faster. I hate it when courses push the pace of play, esp when playing with novice golfers. It was a beautiful day to play and talk with your group and not feet rushed at each hole.

Cart Path Only Golf Day

All I can say is I should have called as we had terrible storms recently. No fault of the course but basically it should have been closed. It was a sloppy mess and quite frankly the course lay out sucks, sorry but it does. It's only a 9 hole and I don't generally play these and can honestly say I won't be back. Seems like no one takes the time to fix ball marks on the greens anymore. I did not enjoy this round at all to say the least.
