Poor Condition

The greens had been aerated, but even if they hadn’t been their condition looked poor. The tee boxes and fairways were not in good condition either. One of the most annoying things was that multiple fairways have become so narrowed by overgrown overhanging tree limbs that you only had 20-30 yard wide gaps to hit through. With the course having been built in 1996, those holes looked like what your home shrubbery would look like if you hadn’t trim them for 24 years. Therefore, I have no idea how this course has gotten an 88.9 positive review rating. So for a better value and much higher quality course, just go down the road and play the excellent nearby Pilgrim’s Run course.

Nice course for the price

Booked a 2 some with cart for $48. Couldn’t beat the price. Course was nice and challenging, fairways were tight which made the course challenging. A few of the tee boxes were in not the best of shape. Greens were fast and hard. Overall a very fun and nice course, we will most defiantly play again when we are in town.

Okay course

The greens need work the fairways were nice to holes the fairways were terrible and six or seven holes the tea boxes were terrible. Overall the price was OK but I’d give it a three star instead of a four-star as golf now has it down as a four-star

Front 9

Played the front nine again. The course is in good shape, greens do need a bit of attention but good otherwise. This day was more about pace of play. The front seemed a little jammed up. Maybe some of us cold have been directed to start on the back. Overall, for my son’s first time, was fun. Better yet, he’s excited to go again.

It’s not a great course. But it is definitely worth the money! The staff was extremely friendly. One even stopped to give me advice on how to approach a hole. The course was not in amazing condition. Some of that probably had to do with how little rain we’ve gotten in the last couple of weeks. It was a little challenging trying to dodge the sprinklers while playing, but that was never a big deal. Especially being a beginner who doesn’t have $60 to spend on a round of golf, this is a really good option. Don’t expect an amazing course, but for the money, it is well worth it.

Whitefish deal

The greens were in excellent shape. Tees were in below average shape: hard, burned out grass. Many washout and hardpan areas in many rough areas The course layout is unique. Tough holes are cut out of trees, trouble on both sides. Hit in there and it’s jail time

GOING DOWN HILL

I have played this course many times in the past and it goes from good to bad to unplayable. The last time I played it was not good. Carts should be in the bone yard. The course was not very well taken care of. Poor fairways and the greens were also bad. This is too bad because it has a good layout. A couple of years ago it was in pretty good shape, but now it is going down hill again.

Be narrow and straight.

Cannot take carts out to your vehicle, no biggy. Beers came with a nice little cooler with ice. Warmed up at there convenient little range. The course was in great condition. A lot of nice narrow fairways very challenging. Greens were slower then used to, but in good condition. Pace was good kept moving. Will play again here and the sale price was great.

Carts are still in poor condition.

This course is great in terms of overall value for the price! My only complaint is the functionality of the carts. I've golfed here a handful of times and each time the cart I end up using struggles to work efficiently.

Management,

Please resolve this.
