Another Senior Day
I've played this course many times for over 30 years, but my playing days here are about over. I showed up at about 8:30am on a Tuesday and the course was jammed with several groups of senior golfers waiting to tee off on #10. Although the first tee was wide open, when I asked the pro if I could tee off , he said no that the seniors had the tee. When I pointed out that they were all teeing off #10, he ho-hummed around and said he could get me off at 9:40 with a 3-some. No excuse for this. I was told by one of the seniors that they pretty much owned the course 3 days a week. I feel sorry for junior golfers and others that show up out here in the summer expecting to have a walking experience and a simple round of golf. I would no longer recommend this golf course. Too bad they've allowed the seniors to take this place over.
Short public course
The greens are small and the holes are fairly short. Nothing much to the course. A good place for beginners
I've played Horton several times and will continue to go back. I can play 18 with a cart for under $40 even on the weekends. The course is almost never busy, especially during week days. If you're a beginner golfer or just looking for an easy round, Horton Smith is the place as every hole is strait with no big turns. My only complaint is on the back 9. The last 4 holes is pretty much the exact same par 4. Some of the greens on the course are tiny, but they're all well kept during season.
