Nice course!

Played on Labor Day weekend and got 18 done in 4:20. Good pace on the course, little to no wait times on tees. Friendly staff. Course was in good shape; greens were well taken care of.

Poor condition course

I have played this course around 5 times over the last four (4) years and it used to be in outstanding condition.

Not this time. The fairways were pretty bad. Very hard turf and uneven with some weeds. For the amount of money they charge for green fees it is not worth it.

Maybe I'll give it another try in a couple of years.

Good course, not so kind staff

Never felt so un-welcomed at a course before. Started off the day having to argue that we had purchased a cart with the tee time on Golf Now which they wouldn't honor until we showed them the email receipt. Not so kind staff - our group was rushed and passively-aggressively pushed along (being only 3 mins behind schedule) after the front nine. We had a group behind us, but did not once have them come close to waiting behind us.

Good course, not so great experience with the staff.

Still in style

I learned how to play golf here 30+ years ago - it’s still a great test. The course setup is very fair to the player and gives you plenty of options off the tee. The food is good and the beer is cold! Congrats to Jamie and crew.

Nice course. Hard greens.

Nicely maintained course, but the greens were in desperate need of water - at times it was somewhat like putting on concrete. Although, there hasn't been much rain.
The pace of play was slow, not sure if there was a league a few groups in front of us.

They have great greens!

So, this course has great greens. It's tree lined. Pretty simple layout. Nothing offensive. But their fairways are a mix of dwarf bluegrass and some sort of corse fescue. The ball doesn't sit up & chipping is difficult given your wedges stick. So your technique has to be on point. Overall it was a pleasure to play here, enjoyed the challenge. But doubtful that I will return, given other courses have bent grass fairways in our area.

Course was in great condition.

Greens were in excellent condition, fast and very consistent throughout. Only criticism I have about the course is that the carts were expensive ($20 each player-$40 total)

Checking in problem

When checking in, the young man (probably summer temp.) told me that the cart was not included with my prepaid confirmation and that one would be provided at an additional charge. I told him that it was and after checking his computer he could not find any confirmation that it was. I offered to show him the confirmation on my phone at which time he reluctantly said that I could take a cart, but he acted as though I was taking advantage of the club. One of the other players in our group was a man whose name I believe is Ken, related to me at the end of the round that he too had received the same skeptical treatment from this young man and that he was made to pay an additional $25 for the use of a cart. I offered to accompany this man into the clubhouse to speak with the manager, but he declined my offer, stating that he would take it up with the booking organization. This is the only time that I have ever had any problem at any course while using your booking system.

Nice course but extra charge for cart

The GolfNow reservation showed that the cart was included but the pro shop worker acknowledged that even though the reservation lists the cart as included, it isn’t . So we had to pay extra $20 each.

We choose this course based on the rate relative to other courses but it turned out to be as much or more than nicer courses.

GolfNow needs to be more accurate about the fees.
