Nice course

The course is a little tight, the front nine can get a little hairy because you’re hitting into greens that are surrounded by T boxes. Back nine is a little more open.

For starters there was no starter, you need to wear a helmet on the course, course conditions were terrible but greens were good. No beverage cart, no bathrooms on course, I DONT RECOMMEND PLAYING THE EAST COURSE !

This review is entirely accurate. I'm not that picky but If this were what golf courses were like, I wouldn't play.

ONLY Play on a Weekday if you care about Pace of Play

The real issue with this course appears to be pace of play. My assumption is they need a good starter and ranger.

We played on a Wednesday mid-morning and it took 2 1/2 hours to play nine holes (compared to my experience at other courses where a weekday mid-morning nine takes me around 1 1/2 hours).

My friend (who has played there a number of times) said on the weekend an 18-hole round can easily be 5 1/2 hours.

Course conditions were fair but not great. Some holes had bunkers that were rock hard, some holes had bare spots on the greens but then other holes had really nice fairways, or the greens were nice, etc.

The course itself is nice enough but you do have to be careful about wayward shots (the holes are close together and balls were flying everywhere from guys slicing or hooking their shots). Also, the PAR 3 holes were long from the forward tee. It was fine but for pace of play, not good since short hitters probably can't reach the green in regulation.

There is no 9-hole rate which is a bit annoying but the walking weekday rate was $25 so at least that is reasonable (that is if you pay cash, apparently if you use a credit card they charge additional $3.00.) The staff was nice and told us about the cash vs credit card issue so I paid cash.

The front nine was easy to walk. The only hill to push your pull cart up was approaching the ninth hole green.

Bottom line I would play again on a weekday to give it a second try to see if pace of play and course conditions were a fluke or the norm.

It is the norm.
A sunday morning round took me and 2 friends a little over 5 hours. There was no starter, and after talking to a few other players out here, tee times aren't even a thing either.

We have enjoyed the course, the friendly staff and the hot dogs and delicious hamburger grill. The price is very reasonable.

Angry, not worth the $$$

The course is very crowded meaning all the holes are on top of one another. Greens were OK. EVERYTHING else was terrible. The grass wasnt mowed the rough was weeds. Some holes didnt even have a “fairway” it looked like you were hitting into a field. The tee boxes were uneven and VERY beat up. Garbage cans on the course were overflowing with trash laying around and i played at 7am on a holiday when ALOT of people golf. Disgusted and can not believe i paid $65 for this dog track. Never Again and i would NEVER reccomend this course to anyone.

good experience

Nice course, in good shape. Not long, but does require accurate shots to score well. Many doglegs and relatively small greens.

Excellent greens

The course was short and tight as advertised, but I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the greens, which were smooth, fast and challenging.
