Good layout, bad upkeep

I am sure in its day this was a nice course. But not anymore. Fairways were long. Cart paths were a joke. Almost no yardage markers on the course. Tough as a first time player on the course. Greens had piles of clippings all over it.

busy day

I played as a single and "bounced" around. It got me through in a little over 3 hours. When I finished I noticed the 4some I originally started behind was just making the turn. This is one of my "regular" courses and I'll be back.

Not a well manicured course...

I will qualify this review by saying we only paid $20/person for 18 and a cart through Golfnow, and I wouldn't pay a dime more for this course. Fairways are marginally different than simply mowing your own grass and weeds short. While the greens did seem to roll fairly true, several of them had large patches of disease. The course layout is pretty much a joke. From tee box number 3 (playing blue tees) you literally have to hit a dead hook around trees to even come close to the fairway, which you cannot see at all from the tee box on a straight hole due to the placement of the tee box behind the trees. All of the jokes play pretty much the same, then you come to two back-to-back par 3's that are both over 200 yards. Who would design such a layout? The pace of play was acceptable even though the course is full of beginners so plan accordingly. I do not plan to return to this course though I think it does offer value for beginning golfers looking for wide open areas of forgiveness.

They over book !!

They had way to many people out there and to top it off no marshals to maintain the pace of play .I watched numerous people tee up three balls with the group sitting behind them!!! If your going to over book it then at least have a,some marshals to get the pace of play going. No need to have 2-3 groups waiting on the tee box.

Play Now - Course has been sold!

Good basic golf. Course has been sold to Pulte (deal finalized 7/19) for a housing development. I expect conditions may decline as the season progresses.

Value

The course plays fair and is good for a high handicap player. No much trouble but length is good. Greens in pretty good shape, play fair and fairways are decent. Place does need some TLC. No cart staff serving drinks on a fairly warm and humid day. Price on golf now was outstanding. With a bit more effort, this course could improve but it is what it is. A cheap place to hack golf balls.

First time I beat my Father

I thought the course lacked water and tree obstacles. But, then soon realized it made it up by the rolling hills, wavy greens(well maintained), challenging pin placement & also the elevated greens. A good course where you can use all your clubs.
