Much to be desired

Had rain the night before so Course had water in fairways in every bunker. Still did not show that it was in great shape prior to the rain. For a resort course. It left much to be desired.

Good course

The course is very nice. Staff is friendly. Our only issue, was the course allowed a very slow group of 6 to tee off in front of us.

Bad weather

Have played the course for 20 years. One of my favorite places. Didn’t get to play yesterday because it snowed. Will get a chance to play on another day.

Rough around the edges

Greens were nice. Cart paths bumpier than rough. Branches over cart path need trimming.

Lovely Course, Friendly Staff

Truly beautiful course, can be challenging on certain spots but very enjoyable. I think prior review from 2017 is an outlier. I have never been mis-charged by staff. They are always incredibly friendly and helpful. As for the drink cart, it came by our group twice on the front nine alone. Love the course and staff!

Solid Course & Value

A few things ... The greens were some of the nicest I have played in Central MN ... But unfortunately we had a group infront of us who either did not know how to repair a ball mark or flat out refused to do it ... It is really unfortunate when the greens were in such good shape ... Fairways were in good shape ... Tee-Boxes were a bit worn ... Carts were gas and were fairly quiet ... It would be nice if they had beverage coolers and sand/turf-repair bottles in order to keep those fairways in good shape ... Suggestion on which tee-boxes to play ... I normally play the blue tees (but not the tips) but if I were to go back and play again I would slide up to the white tee's ...

Target golf

Target golf. Great greens, fast. Somewhat unforgiving, a little off line and it's a lost ball. Very nice looking course. Worth playing.

Goddfree

It was a Sunday afternoon none of the holes are marked so you can find your way around the paths are chunky and unkempt.... not one maintenance worker or Ranger to be found on the course and no beer cart ... this was and could be a very nice course if they managed it properly.

Disappointing

Started of with pro shop charging us more then quoted at time of booking tee time. Most disappointing part was there were no markers or signage to show how the holes lay out. No course map on the scorecard, no signage at the tee boxes, nothing in the clubhouse. Hitting a lot of shots that were either blind or had hidden hazards. Beverage cart only came on the front nine on a day that was close to 90 degrees.
