Short, but tight

You need to be very accurate off the tee in most cases, narrow fairways lined with trees will require a tr4icky second shot. Overall the course was in great shape, and it gets a lot of play. The tee boxes could use a little attention.

Ok course with blow up holes

The course is Ok. Maintained Ok. My complaint is with how they determine par. It’s a par 70 course but on the back 9....from the WHITE tees... there is a 425 yard par 4 followed by a 440 yard par 4. Both of these holes should be shortened or made to be par 5’s. There are only one par 5 on the back 9 so why not not convert the holes?? Oh...and...there is a par 5 on the front 9 that is only 450 yards!! It makes no sense! The course would be MUCH more fun and fair as a par 72.

Great for the value

We were never pressured for pace, and had a great time. It seemed like they had sprinkler issues and there were puddles and some mud pits of the edges of a few fairways. Only issue.

Bring your own ball washer

Fairways and Greens in good shape but Teeboxes and ballwashers are terrible. Ball washer water and towels look and smell like the haven’t been serviced in 5 yrs.

If you bring your own ball washer you can have a great time on this beautiful old wooded course if you can hit the ball straight and avoid the huge trees lining every hole!

Challenging course all skill levels

My brother and myself got hot deal to play today.We arrived early and got out a couple minutes before our tee time. Course was busy and we had to wait almost every hole due to a slow group ahead of us. Overall still had good time playing. Course needs attention in most every tee box and fairways little grown but great value. Will definitely play there again Hope pace better
