The course was in need of grass cutting but was in good condition. I would recommend this course to our friends. Great GolfNow value.

Thank You for the kind words. We planted a lot of grass seed this fall and the combination of how wet it’s been and the newly germinated grass is the reason the grass is a bit high right now. Once the new grass is established we will get it mowed to a desirable height. In the next few weeks you should see a marked improvement.

Thanks again and see you soon

Always a good course

Given the amount of rain that has fallen recently, the course was in good shape. There were areas in the fairways that were saturated along with some greens as well. However, the course was in god condition and very playable.

Good value for hot deal

Overall course was in pretty good shape. Good layout, but I didn’t like the 2-3 holes with blind tee shots (11 & 13 I think). Hole 10 is pretty ridiculous. Greens were in nice shape and rolled true. Pace of play was good for a Sunday 12:00pm tee time. For $18 I was happy with this course.

Need a lot of work on tee boxes

Course layout is good, greens and most fairway are in pretty good shape. Tee boxes are in terrible shape. Elderly 4 some tied up the back nine causing major backup last 4-5 holes.

Hello and thank you for leaving us your feedback. We are happy to see that you recommend our course, but we are sorry that you were disappointed with the condition of the tee boxes and ran into the slow play on the back nine when you played. We hope that you will see some improvements the next time you golf with us. Thank you again for sharing your concerns.

Good greens, poor fairways

A bit pricey for the conditions, but on a Saturday before noon not a bad deal...all things considered. The snack bar/food at the turn was good.

Average course

Conditions were extremely wet but not too much standing water. Ball did not travel after hitting the ground.

Otherwise a good value round of golf.

Best Staff and Value

Full disclosure, I am a member. I'm a member because the staff is easily the best I've seen, and the quality of the course for the price is exceptional. I always recommend this course for those reasons.
