Nice course but a little slow

Course wasn’t as crowded due to early rain but pace of play was still quite slow. Play would probably improve if course had a driving range, at least for irons. Every time I play here first few holes for many are bad, and it slows down the pace. Also would like to see greens taken care of better by patrons.

Solid for the price.

Parking is an issue! You are better off in a car pool or better yet uber it. Course fun and not over the top difficult. 5-6 hr round is in play ouch.

Had a 7:15 reservation - didn’t get out until 8 (and I consider that lucky for this course). Constant back up at the tee boxes as they book tee times every 7 minutes. They have the audacity to charge $72 for a sub par minor league course where you’re constantly in danger of getting hit by a ball from other holes. Layout is terrible
