First Time Playing

Had a later tee time as part of the Best Deal, but they allowed us to tee off about 50 mins earlier. This was a big deal considering it was the middle of August and the heat index was through the roof. The staff was friendly and understanding.

The course conditions were disappointing. There were many bare spots in many fairways. Some greens had bare spots.

Good Hot Deal course

Course has a good layout and was in good shape. There are a few risk/reward opportunities that require a well placed shot. Pace of play seems to always be good.

Sadly disappointed ...

Today I thought get out for a nice round of golf...played front side in a really reasonable time. However, when I came to the back side hole ten had a group on it, and it got worse ahead of this group. There’s no doubt in my mind these groups started on number 10. Typical for course’s that don’t account for there golfers. I waited so long I eventually bypassed and went to front side to get in a few more holes. I was then stopped by an individual that wanted to check my ticket for it’s validity. Of course it was, however, he said there was no way it took me this long to play and I’d have to leave the course. I would say to anyone give this course a try and see if you get your value for your money. Anyone that plays a reasonable round of golf ... This course will leave you dissatisfied. Happy golfing my fellow golfers!

Saturdaze

We started out at 8:20 nice crisp breeze great weather conditions. Many of the sand hazards were not raked and some over grown. The rough and the greens were not very well maintained. For a moderately technical course you would expect a little more out of the grounds crew. Overall still a great place to golf and for an early tee time on a Saturday with great weather you can’t beat the cost for a quality golf outing.

Mixed Bag

Though the course overall was in good condition, I hadn't been to the course in five years. Probably would've scored better if we knew where we were hitting half the time. Should be a book providing tips for each hole but all the course had was yardage books which didn't help. Also, the signage for many holes, particularly on the back nine, was horrendous. Several times we came to a fork in the road with no signs at all. Forgot this course didn't have a range either. Aargh!

Worst customer service in golf

I live nearby so I play this course out of convenience. But the management is terrible. The blonde woman in the front office seems to try and prevent people from actually being able to play the course. Multiple times I have been told I can’t go out on the course ( with a scheduled tee time) without a reasonable explanation and when there are other golfers on the course. She is borderline insulting and consistently rude. Bad enough this place is overpriced for what it is, but I can say I’ll never play it again.

Great value, excellent grass coverage

This is a great course at the $50 range. 18 came with a cart and the overall layout was properly challenging. It is a little on the shorter side overall, but you don't feel it while playing. The food at the turn is from the 19th hole, so I highly recommend calling in from the cart on the 8th as orders took awhile. The 10th got backed up. Additionally there were a lot of golfers crammed in back to back that ended up causing a lot of delays. It took 5 hours to play 18 on a Saturday morning for the two of us. Not fully unexpected, but the little things made it a 4 star at this value rather than a 5 star. I still plan to come back and play again.

Not a Grip-and-Rip Course

A number of reviews cite the fact that this is a challenging course and I would agree. If you bring your "A" game, you'll probably find it a worthwhile new experience. If not, you'll need plenty of extra golf balls. That's because the woods bordering virtually every hold are not easy to enter to find stray shots. They are thick with undergrowth. If you overshoot a few greens by just 5-10 yards (like I did with my fairly new clubs), you may be pulling yet another ball out of your bag. Due to the layout of the front nine, I didn't hit a driver until about the 6th or 7th hole. A few more holes were driveable on the back nine than on the front. For reference, I hit about average distance for a 40-year-old golfer. So if you like to hit your driver, you may want to use the professional tees (and suffer the consequences if you hit off-line). The condition of the fairways was largely good and the greens were very good. The sand in the bunkers was very different from one to another. Tee boxes were average. Staff was fairly friendly and accommodating.

course is good; no water

This course is in reasonably good shape - the fairways and the greens were in pretty good shape. And the course layout is reasonably challenging. The reason for the relatively low overall rating is that on a day where temperatures approached 90 there was no water to be had anywhere on the course. This is just not ok and they need to quickly remedy it.

Hard to Describe

The layout on this course is great if you like a good challenge doesn’t have the distance of other courses but has tight fairways to make up for it,
Conditions are ok
Greens a pretty good this year,
Fairways are ok in places
Rough can very depending where you are from thick to non existent,
Sand traps are lower quality
Overall this is a fun course to play
And since Eisenhower is closed this year I will be here allot
