Course has gone down hill very badly

Super disappointed after playing this course today. This used to be one of my favorite courses, but it seems like they have really let it go. Many dry and dead spots on fairways/greens. Greens are absolutely torn to shreds. Fringe on greens is absolutely terrible. The bunkers look like they have never been raked. Divots in fairways look like they are never replaced or filled with sand. Rough is so inconsistent and soggy in many places or hard as a rock in some. Unfortunately I don’t think I will be coming back here as 56 dollars is just way too much for what the course is now. I wouldn’t recommend playing it if your paying more than 20-25 bucks. Sad to see such a great course gone downhill so quickly.....

Slick greens

Great layout. After opening birdie. Reality set in pretty fast on the 2nd hole had a 20 foot birdie putt with a 6 foot break. Thought i did not reach the each of the down slope and skated 7 feet past on the high side. Walk away with bogie. That was the way the day continued. Slick and readable greens. Best have a confidence stroke to score well.

Tight greens

Undulating greens cut very close. Must use restraint when putting or you’ll go way past the hole, that being said, it’s a great challenge!

FAST Greens, Great conditions

Love this layout. Most holes are straight back and forth although some dramatic elevation changes and good variety of short and long distances. LOVE the greens, they always roll true, but are some of the FASTEST around!!! Decent prices and very good food at the turn.

Good Buy

Course was in great condition and the play was very challenging. The greens are fast but smooth and very putable. The course has a good variety of challenging holes of varying lengths and configurations which are fun to play. I'd recommend this course to any level golfer. It's a good value.

Course was very nice,not much leaves ,well kept fairways and greens.

Course was great as always.We did run into slow play and found out when we called while on the course that there was an 8 person groups doing an ironman tourney going on ahead of us. We wish we had known this in advance or told about it before we went onto the course.Maybe golf now could get this information for us.
