This course was terrible. The fairways might as well be the rough, the bunkers were dirt patches with some grass trying to grow in them and the greens were impossible to put on.

This was the worst course I have ever been to in my whole entire life. Unputtable. Ungolfable. Old and deteriorated. Signs litter the club house which was locked during normal hours stating to call the greens keeper on his cell for service. The course should be shut down until they make the needed corrections. The fairways we're higher than most ruffs on any golf course. I played two holes of golf and lost six balls in the process. The crazy thing is is that I hit all the balls onto the fairway. That's whenever I gave up and wanted to get a refund. when I spoke to the manager he told me that the course had previously been shut down and they are trying to bring customers back after making renovations. The truth is is that they have got their work cut out for them. He told me they have been spending four years trying to revamp. Four years in my opinion is a long time. in any case dont waste your time. I would have given this No stars if the option was available.

Course should be closed. Having people pay for that is, there's not a bad enough word to use.<br/> Green's unplayable grass 6 inches tall in fairways

I don't think i would even call this a golf course. Lost 3 balls in the fairway on the first 4 holes. If you like 4" high grass and dandelions in your fairway, this is your course.

I would first like to state that I hope the new owners make a go of it. The course is in really bad shape. The greens were so high that putting was not an option. The fairways' grass was so high that I lost 3 balls hitting right down the middle. The rough was....really rough!<br/> This is a nine hole course that does have potential but under the current conditions, other courses are a much better value. If the new owners shape it up, I would be happy to go back and give it another try.
