Beautiful layout

First time playing this course, was pleasantly surprised at the course conditions this early in the season. Had a fair amount of rainfall this week and course was pretty dry. Fairways and greens were exceptional, layout was very challenging and well worth the money. Scores were not as well as we would have liked, but had a great time. Will absolutely return to this course this summer.

Covid unsafe

I was paired with a duo not practicing social distancing. I wouldn’t recommend pairing random unknown people through this app because it causes a situation where the virus can spread. I don’t think that is the fault of the course, rather the apps programming.

Nice but pricey

Last minute tee time for group of three left me with few options. We’d never played here before but I’d heard good things. A very nice course. Nice length, variety of holes, elevation changes, some water in play. Greens were in great shape and for the amount of rain we’d had recently, the course was in good shape. Very nice, but not sure it was $65-a-round nice.

Great course

Excellent local course for the price, especially if you get a Hot Deal. Fun layout. The staff is very friendly. Given the affordable price, it can get pretty crowded. After a rain, the greens are like putting on glass.

Early Oct round

Started off rough with first tee time since carts were not available since staff left keys at home . Had to walk first four holes with out of country guest since it took employee 45 mins to go home and get keys! No backup plan? I’m sure when it was private there were always backup plans to take care of guest. Course tight but in good shape.

Save your money

Started out bad when the driving range is for irons only. $10 for a small sandwich and $5 for a beer. $8 for range balls. Then on to the course. Most if the holes are down and back next to each other. Greens are difficult with some impossible pin placements and some very patchy. Tons of ball marks and bald spots. The group was unanimous we won't be back again.

Nice old Classic BUT.............................

We played on a Friday noonish, we were harassed by an old curmudgeon member from the 1st tee until an eventual altercation on the 14th green. We were surrounded by 2 groups of former members (I assume) who are now seasonal members as the course IS open to the public. We are 4 single digit handicap players. The groups in front and back regularly did not finish holes or putt out on greens. The group behind us had 3 carts for 4 players. We played the front nine in 1:50 having never seen the course before (tricky greens and VERY tight off of the tee along with thick heavy rough). On th 14th hole the old timer hit into us just missing one of our group. The altercation started when he drove up to the green shouting wheres my F/"_*6 ball! Which we had taken and thrown into a hazard. It was obvious members of his group were familiar with his behavior and allowed it although he wasnt very well supported. The altercation was loud and aggressive. On the next hole the Dir. of Golf came out to stalk us on the 15th green, it was clear he too new the trouble maker. We then gave him our opinion of the group behind us behavior. Needless to say our back 9 was ruined. I went to proshop to ask for B9 raincheck Dir of Golf had left for day. We hit our 1st shot at 12:14 and were done with two lengthy stoppages due to confrontation at 4:10. Players like that man are VERY bad for business. I am a member at another club and would never behave like that toward guests. In addition the one member of our group was lucky to not be seriously injured when the horrible old timer hit a long shot over a hill missing him by inches. Loved the track waiting for our rainchecks, one seasonal membership is not worth having a jackwagon like that on your course.

Good layout. Rough shape

Have played here a lot. It has changed ownership a few times. It’s a classic old layout and when in good shape it’s a fun course with some good holes. But it was in rough shape. The tees were beat up. Greens were ok. Fairways were shaggy. No dirt on the carts. Just needs work and it can be good again but it needs work
