No carts

I booked a tee time with golf now on 12/1 /18 to play 18 holes with cart at 9:55 on 12/2/18. Upon my arrival I was told that were no carts available because of wet grounds, only walking was allowed I requested a pulled cart and was told they were stored away for the season. I then cancelled the round. The course should have called and advised me of the conditions before I drove there. Very disappointed and I should be compensated for time.

Great possibilities and vslue

Fun course. Great price. Very tight, small greens but challenging. With a little cleaning up and some tree pruning, this could be a a great course

Challenging Course

This course, although not long (~ 6000 yds fm back tees), is quite challenging because of its design and topography. The fairways are average widths but with so many mature trees lining them, u often have to b on the correct side or ur blocked from a direct shot to the green. This happened to me a few times. Good drive, wrong side, bogey. A bit frustrating but would likely shoot better next time. Also, if you’re not a fan of steep sloped greens, u better not play here. All in all tho, I had a good day overall. Price was right and I’d go back.

Tight course, with many holes going back and forth. Tee boxes could use some work, but the greens were in great shape. Will play again.

Unprepared

Grass clippings throughout the rough and fairways. The greens were a different speed on every other hole. Sand traps filled with rocky dirt. No garbage cans at any holes. Drink cart was empty every time it got to us. At the turn, nothing was ready to eat and the few drinks they had were room temperature. Including the 35 minutes past our tee time we waited to tee off, it was a 6:15 round. It was Fathers Day, they were way overbooked and unprepared for the mass of people on the tee sheet. Won’t be back.

Good value for price

Course is short but plays a tough 6100 or so from the tips. Par 3s are 180+ and difficult to birdie. Good course for price!

Underwhelming

Pace of play was atrocious. Weekday, late morning tee time. 4 hours in, I had to skip the last 2 holes to get to work on time. Ranger was not seen after leaving for the first tee. Course itself was alright, some nice holes, maintained pretty well. Elevated tee shots are fun, and there are many here. Might play here again if the price is right (<$20 hot deal), hopefully they figure out their pace of play issues. Guy I ended up joining up with around the 10th-11th hole said this is the norm: rack em and stack em.

Going under???

The rumors of the township shutting it down might be true(((. Maintenance was suspect at best. Greens were cut much higher. I can understand that. But growth and suckers on trees have not been touched all season. Better get out and play it while you can! And now a bad putt won't roll off the green!! Lol

Wouldn't Play Again If You Paid Me

Thru the front 9 we had three groups try to jump ahead of us. The back started off the same. We had two groups do the same before abandoning our outing at hope 14. If this Course was free I wouldn't play. Lack of ranger and low price per round results in an unnecessarily painful experience.
