Great course to practice all kinds of shots. Tight fairways, small greens, and par 3’s of a wide range of distances. Staff members are attentive, friendly, and an overall pleasure to deal with. This is a great value for the money!

Great course to practice woods and irons

The course is always in great shape. The maintenance crew is out there every day clearing brush and dead trees. The office staff members are friendly and helpful. Now if only they could add a couple thousand yards it would be even better!

Challenging Par 3 course

Play here alot. Always try to get one of the earliest tee times and breeze through a round in about 3 hours. Difficult greens and tight fairways provide plenty of challenges.

Great course to practice with irons

This course is very well maintained, has a great staff, and challenging greens. I have played this course since it opened, and it has always been a challenge. Fairways are tight, greens are small and shaped to provide plenty of action. Great course to practice irons, not much opportunity to use the driver, but three wood and hybrids come into play.

Well-maintained course, each hole is nicely cut out individually in the Pine Forest, challenging, and a great way to shore up your short game

Best Kept Secret

Can’t beat the price and the condition of the course is very good. Great place to work on short game. Bing my Son their often as he’s a beginner so it’s perfect for that situation too. Staff is always very friendly, from cashier to starter.

For the price you can’t beat it!

I’m still very new to golf but from what I’ve seen, this course is great for the price. Narrow fairways make it challenging. The greens were pretty well kept. I would definitely recommend this course to beginners players or someone looking for a quick 18. I will be returning soon

3 Par Course

Nice little course, but it is in a state of disrepair. I’m sure at some point it was a much nicer. But to the courses defense it is later in the season. Pace of play was slow as we continuously had to wait on a group in front. Even after folks were nice enough to let us play through, a couple holes later backed up again. Note that there are quite a high percentage of walkers at this course then I’ve experienced at any other course.

Overall, I would give this place another try to make my final decision.

Staff were extremely friendly, which was a huge plus.
