I played this course in June, using my pushcart. GolfNow had openings for $10. It was definitely worth that. I would pay $30 to play this course again (but that would have to be with a cart). Greens were nice, but the bermuda fairways were in excellent shape.

I used to be a member here but moved towns, but it is a really challenging course that tests any level of amateurs game. The greens were in great shape, the fairways were in fair condition (rain & flooding had created some issues). I walked the course because they offered incredibly cheap rates for walking. Unless you really enjoy a good workout I don't suggest you walk it, but for the price I could not resist and it was a physical workout doing so, which I actually enjoyed. Aside from that it's a great course I would play again, especially for the rate I got it at.

The online rate was 15 then they charged us an additional 40 for the cart. It cost me more to use golfnow than to just show up and play. Very poor overall experience. I will never play this course again

Worst course conditions I have ever seen. It's almost like they put 0 effort into the upkeep of this course. The fairway is overrun with dandelions, and some fairways appear that they haven't been cut in weeks. The course would be pretty fun to play, if the conditions wernt so terrible. If the fairways didn't have dandelions in them, they had massive holes, or dead grass all over. Course is advertised a single 4 stars, but should be around 2.

Fairways still in the process of turning green from winter. Looks like they are starting to treat the dandelions but there are parts of the course overrun with them. Makes it difficult to find a ball that's off the fairway but still in play. Clubhouse is remodeled and looks great inside. Other facilities on the course need work.

By the far the absolute worse coarse conditions I have ever played. Weeds have overtaken every fairway and the rough was not mowed at all. Good shots were repeatedly lost balls. And they charged full price knowing their coarse is as such. Will not play again.

Course was in decent shape for time of year.

Will play again in spring to see what conditions are then. Layout was nice but a little tricky without course knowledge.

This is an interesting layout, although a few of the holes have such dramatic uphill elevation changes, that there are a few goofy holes. Course conditions were pretty good, but I couldn't help but wonder how a little more effort may have made the course a truly nice golf course. Even minor maintenance would be an upgrade (e.g. a lot of weeds and grass growing up through railroad ties in spots). The staff was friendly and helpful. I rated this course a "3", but it is so close to a "4".

The course layout was challenging without being impossible. It is a well kept secret as the course was not crowded. It was brutally hot and was evident on the course. My only complaint, if it can be classified as one, is the lack of water stations around the course. Coolers with water would be a welcomed addition to this hidden gem.

I booked a "hotdeal" on golfnow to play here at 9am on a weekend for $19. I figured what the heck, can't beat that price as it would normally be around $40 to play with cart. The course was not in bad shape and had an interesting layout. Had some elevation change and a few challenging holes. Will the course blow you away? Probably not. Will you enjoy playing a round here? Probably so. I was greeted by a woman who was very friendly. There is not much of a pro shop as it is combined with the dining area. The only negative thing about the course is the cart paths and the cart in which I used. They definitely need some improvement with the cart paths as they were very bumpy and uneasy. The carts tires that I used (which certainly could be the only one) would screech loudly whenever I started the cart. For the value I paid this course definitely exceeded my expectations and I enjoyed my time playing there. I would recommend this course to both beginners and avid golfers alike!
