Course is fairly short but also decently tight on several holes. A ball gobbler! Some holes there are houses in play for sure.

The geese do a better job of maintaining the course than the grounds crew. Bridges were more than rickety. Trees seemed like they had never been trimmed. Pathways not clearly marked. Quite the experience.

Course was in good shape. Greens were very good, even though they were aerated. Ball rolled true. It wasn't too crowded, but pace of play was still good. Good layout, with, I think the back nine a little tougher. Fairways arre tight, lined with tees.

Horrible condition, patchy and uncut fairways, rough was all over the place, sand traps need new sand. Greens are surprisingly nice. Geese poop everywhere.

Staff is slow, they often have the pro shop close and make you go to the bar to check in to play golf, recently went up and waited 15 mins because they had to tend bar and get food and drink orders. Just gave up and left, will not be coming back here

This course will challenge your tee shots and club selection. Even short holes have forced carry and the course is tight. Course conditions in Mar are expectedly average. Greens were quick and true. Staff is always friendly. Lots of regulars enjoy after round laughs. Pace is usually decent and price is inviting.

I'm happy to see the fairways and tee boxes are making a comeback. They were full and healthy looking. I'm sure if they can make it through the winter months, come spring it'll be in tip-top shape. Greens are always a favorite of mine at this course.

This course was in excellent condition and the course is great for moderate to good players. Overall the course was perfect and the staff was very friendly. I would recommend this course to all players that have played before, a little difficult if you are a beginner but I guarantee you will have fun and be challenged

I really prefer to keep this course a secret so others will not come out! But this will be the best course you will play under $50 bucks in this State. The course is in great shape, the tee boxes just were aerated but the fairways and greens were outstanding! I try and avoid the sand traps but they looked okay. The staff is very professional and once again, you cant play a course like this for $30 bucks!

since greens being aerated they are filling in nicely, very true. some rough right next to fairways have been trimmed making it a little fairer for slightly offline shots. traps could use some work, some have too many rocks

although recently aerated the greens were fair and reasonably true.

some of the rough close to the fairway was being cut so it wasn't so severe. thoroughly enjoyably round

course played well except for rough. on most holes there is no intermediate rough before the higher thick stuff. being just slightly of the fairway can be quite penalizing as well as contributing to longer play time while looking for shots. in fact I lost 2 balls I hit thru the fairway into the rough and couldn't find them
