Course is very nicely laid out, green are good speed and fairly small, which makes this course somewhat challenging!

Slow Play and Poor Condition

Fully understand the challenges of running a course during these times. But compared to other options in the area this should be at the bottom. We had three foursomes on the first hole and waited on every hole. The tee boxes are in poor shape and the sprinklers were running on EVERY hole. The course seems to be a favorite for both beginners and the older crowd. If you have 5.5 hours to play and do not mind waiting on each hole - go for it.....

starters can't do a simple job

Tee times should never be 8 minutes apart, obviously just a way to profitize and neglect customer experience. Tee'd off 20 minutes late. Starter ignored 2 twosomes teeing off AFTER eachother even after we ASKED (sarcastically hoping that someone would get the picture) why they aren't teeing off with them. As a result - waited 15 minutes on every tee. Played 9 and gave up. Course MGMT is a joke. no ranger, noone cares, just take money and goodbye. Won't be back.

Nice layout, poor upkeep and pace

Clubhouse check in was painfully slow. Cashier was more interested in talking with the people he’d just checked in than getting us checked in so we could start. The pace of play was abysmal. The layout of the course was fun and challenging. Upkeep was lacking. Course definitely has drainage issues. Sand traps weren’t kept up and multiple tee boxes were nearly unplayable.

Good Public Course

The course was packed as you’d expect for a public course on a sunny summer weekend. Even though we we waited on the group in front of us a few times as they waited for the group ahead of them, we finished in 4 1/2 hours. Even though it’s not the most meticulously maintained course, the layout is challenging and I’m fine with putting up with some downtrodden bunkers to avoid paying for a private club.

Horrible management.

Heard lots of complaints while I was there from other golfers.
