Course was very wet due to recent rains, but playable. Staff always friendly. Overall for the price was enjoyable round.
Pick your time carefully
Be prepared for lots of waiting if you book in a prime time. Booked 18 holes and a cart just for just myself on a weekend morning, and ended up stopping after 9 holes that took 3 hours. Typically was waiting for the group in front of me to tee off, and had the group behind me pulling up when I was teeing up my ball. When I was leaving, there were 7 full carts waiting to tee off on the first hole and this was slightly after noon.
Course design was nice. Not too many holes where you were in danger of losing your ball. Hard to tell some of the fairways from the rough due to how long the fairways' grass was. Actually lost a ball in it on one of the holes. Greens were fast and not too forgiving for a good challenge.
In all, if you can get a good deal on an off-prime time, it's a good course. Otherwise if you book a weekend morning to afternoon, plan to block out 6-7 hours for 18 holes.
Had a 930 tee time. Got on 20 minutes early.had nobody in front of me. 3.5 hr round. Course was in good shape. Greens well taken care of.. At a greens fee of 14 bucks it was a great deal.
The jewel has been blessed by the rain fall this year, even so the fairways were hard and there was brown on some greens. Many sand traps have been left to grow grass. Some tee boxes hard as well. Had fun with my sons. Glad to play and found an early tee time here.
This course was overbooked.
I booked a Roy d for myself two days prior at 9:55am. I arrived at the pro shop to check in at 9:30. I was advised that I would be starting on the back nine due to a league. After playing the back nine I returned to hole number one and saw 10-15 foursomes stacked up at the forward tees on hole number one. The we’re waiting on a foursome In their league on the first fairway. I looked ahead to the par five number two hole and saw another foursome teeing off on the forward tees also. I returned to my car and unpacked my cart and left. I have no idea why GolfNow posted he tee times I selected because it placed me in the middle of league play. I guess I should be thankful to play nine holes even though i paid for 18. Thanks a lot!
South course was closed due to spring rains. North course was in decent shape. Fortunately I booked an early tee time. As I completed my third hole I saw eight groups lined up on the first tee box. With that said as I made the turn there were two foursomes who decided to tee off on number nine. They didn’t wave me through. Their was no Marshall to keep the pace of play going. I regularly played this course last year and the congestion is due to the south course closure. Other than that I had a good round.
Course is fun but there was no warning to us that the other half of the course was shut down, they forced all those people off on our side of the course, took 3 hours for 9 holes. Was cart path only but even the paths were flooded, almost stalled out on 18. Loved this course 2 years ago but appears they are heading downhill. Should have just closed the course instead of trying for a Memorial Day money grab

Played hundreds of rounds here, price was right for getting in a quick round. Course not in to bad a shape, shaggy greens, but overall good day. Staff is friendly.
This course was in great shape considering the drought we have experienced.
I played 18 at 12:15pm. The morning golfers had played through and I had clear sailing. I played 18 in three hours. The greens were in great shape considering the lack of rain we've had in this area. I play this course 1 to 2 times a week. I never have any problems and the staff is quite helpful. Especially Wayne in the clubhouse. The greens and surrounding areas are in great shape and have been watered regularly.
Good Value Course
Played here numerous times, I would not play the Onyx due to the condition of the course. Staff is friendly, course is not difficult. This can be a great bargain at times on Golf Now. We'll play it again, but like I said, not the Onyx.
I always play the Onyx but I am so happy I ventured under the road to the other side! Play was a bit slow, but for a Sunday it’s to be expected. The tees could use some tender loving care but the fairways and rough were in good shape. Greens were consistent as well. The rangers and staff at the course are super nice as well.
