Too many other places to play

The course is just not that good. The greens and fairways are over grown to the point that you get almost no roll on your drive and the ball bounces on the way to the cup when putting. The driving range has to be the worst in the state, good luck finding grass to hit off. I'm just done with this course, my money is better spent elsewhere.

Alright, definition of average

Front nine played really slow, back nine only picked up because a few groups quit.

Good value, conditions above average.

I had not played this course in a few years. Was happy to see it was in good shape and the pace was pretty good. Nice that you don't have to look into back yards even tho it's right in the city.

could be fun for everyone

Realize the torrential rains and winds have wreaked havoc in the area. That said, was disappointed in the fairways. Very little area that was like actually fairway...Could be some kind of "winter kill".

Non fairway was too long for an average golfer. It obviously slowed play by group in front of us. Was often impossible to find a ball that was less than a foot off the fairway. The greens were in very decent condition. I am guessing that rain has caused much of the problems, as there were some very soggy areas, even though there has been no rain for nearly a week.

even after a rain they could run power carts, the rangers had no problem driving on the grass

the players for the day should be notified that they have to walk the course by email due to rain, long course and bad knees do not mix

nothing special

Havent played here for many yrs. Now I remember why. Tons of long grass clippings and piles everywhere, lots of bare and dead spots. A very average layout, nothing very memorable. plenty of better courses for same or less money out there.

Great Course, great greens, very slow

Fantastic course with above average difficulty. The greens are great, fast and challenging. I probably won't be back however because the pace of play was awfully slow. I chose to walk off the course after a 2:55 front 9 with cart.
