Under new management

For a winter day, the course was in good shape. The greens were slow compared to previous rounds. Greens were hard under top layer grass. There were way too many ball marks on the greens. People weren't even attempting to fix their ball marks. Still, not a bad day on the links.

Great time, under rated awesome course!

Deceptively difficult and beautiful layouts. Some tight landings off your drives and even if your on the green putting for birdie, you’ll still be happy if you walk off with a par hah!

Worst pace of play EVER!!!!!!!!!!!

Worst pace of play ever! 3 hours for 9 holes! Ridiculous! Especially on a Tuesday. I actually timed the group ahead of me on a hole.... 18 minutes. Couldn’t even play a full 18 cause I didn’t anticipate a 6 hour round.Started at 11:30, finished #9 @ 2:40. Just plain ridiculous

Decent above average course

Course in pretty good condition - fairways, tees, greens all nice. Only sand traps need work - as do a lot of courses’ sand this time of year. We applied a “free drop behind the trap” rule for our round. Decent 4 hr pace for our foursome. Breezy sunny cool late August day. Good $5 “at the turn” lunch special. This is a nicer course with some better hole layouts and challenges, but nothing overly tough.

Great value course

Played on a very hot Sunday. There weren't any water coolers posted along the course due to the high levels of lead in the water in University Park. The golf course did a great job of handing out free bottled water on the course. That's great customer service. This course is always busy and play can move a little slow. Things especially get backed up on the first two par 3's. Course was in good shape except some sun baked dirt bunkers. Can't beat the value of this course. Beer and food are also cheap.
