Poor Management

Arrived for prepaid 8:15 tee time as a single. I was told there was a league with a shotgun start at 9:00 and I would be squeezed into the middle of the league while on the course. After 5 holes, the league came onto the course and because of the number of players, I quit playing. Very bad management if a single is allowed to book a tee time when you have a league shotgun starting shortly after the scheduled tee time. I do not recommend this course!!

Nothing to write home about !

This is a average Mom and Pop golf course that is great for Average to below Average golfer. Number 10 is a little tricky but if you know where to hit your tee shot, it really helps .
A great course if you want to run and get some practice in because it's not long .
It was a little over price for what you get but there's nothing else around unless you want to drive 45 minutes away. So they have you !
Greens ran true but a bit slow . Found Dollar spots on some that needed attention.

Slow play and poor greens

I have play this course when it was in better condition years back. This time the play was extremely slow andthe greens were full of ballmarks and disease. I saw a high shot hit in a bunker and bounce unto the green it was so hard. This course has potential but needs look of work.

Enjoyable

I have played this course a few times. I have no complaints. Had a conversation with the owner before we teed off, nice guy. Grabbed a hot dog at the turn, oooh, steamed bun too. The course was in pretty good shape. Greens were still coming back from a harsh winter but not bad at all. I'll play it again
