Still had lots of fun!
The only concerns are: Lack of a ranger on the course made play EXTEMELY slow and forward tees play at over 5300 yards. Another set of tees for senior women in the 4800 to 5000 range would make the course much more fun for them! That being said, the course is super fun! Great layout! Challenging, but fair for an intermediate male golfer.
Nice course, very well taking care of. Green are very challenging!!
Just alright ... SLOW
I suppose the layout here is decent and it was in OK shape, but the pace of play was very slow. The course was not even super busy, but it seemed like there were a lot of people who were taking their time and not aware of needing to let people play through.
All of the playing surfaces were decent - tees, fairways and greens - but the holes were a bit boring overall. On the back 9 it gets a bit more interesting.
I felt like the price was a bit high for what this course offers. I wouldn't tell you not to play but I found myself wishing I'd played elsewhere.
The reason I gave this course a 4-star was mainly due to the pace of play of the course. While the course has its challenges, it took us 4 hours and 45 minutes to play a round of golf for a twosome. This is because the course did allow a five some to play even though you can only book up to a foursome. I do not know if this is the courses fault, but maintaining what it states on their website, it seemed that they would be a little more strict on their course rules. Overall, the course was in fantastic conditions even though the trees seemed a little claustrophobic on certain holes, but a fun round and definitely be returning soon.
Really beautiful course
I’m new to golfing myself but I’ve played at a couple different courses and by far this was my favorite course played on! It’s just a beautiful spot and some challenging holes but not too challenging. Definitely gotta drive back to Iowa to play this course again!
Difficult course for the first time playing. Hard to know landing spot distances when you haven't played course before. Uneven lies are common and no straight putts. Snack shop at the turn is right on the cart path so really convenient to get in and out.
Enjoyed the day.
Power and position a premium.
Greens big and fast.
Golf now hot deal
This course is absolutely awesome. Great flow to it. I live in Norwalk and whenever the hot deal hits I
Can’t stop myself from going there now. 14$ for 18 holes 100% worth the hour drive.
Course has a great flow to it.
Great course. Leaves are a bit of a hassle when looking for your ball.. but perfect other than that.
Great course. Challenging
This course is in perfect condition. With a Golf Now rate of about $30 for 18 including cart, the price was right. It is fairly long, and plays even longer. Of course the men have senior tees, but like most courses, senior women play from the same tees they always have played from. Most senior men's tees are within a few feet of the women's tees, with only a couple of exceptions. It would be nice if courses recognized that like senior men, senior women don't smack the ball as long as they used to. Pace of play was pretty good, mainly because this course doesn't seem to get a lot of play. We came up on a foursome, who was playing slower than us, and they did let us through, so we played 18 holes in 3 1/2 hours, after waiting a few holes to be let through. It is impeccably maintained, with great fairways and big, rolling, well-kept greens.
Always a good challenge
This course is fun, especially from the tips, it stretches 7,000 yds. There are holes that you have to strategically play with an iron off the tee and holes you can bomb it. Nice mature trees and is always well manicured.
Course in great shape for as much rain this week. Everything was mowed and raked. Tee boxes were neet and trimmed. Greens rolled well. Getting better every day. Will play it again this summer. Thanks for a nice round.
Cinco de mayo
Great course. Didn't know about the College tourney. Made for slow play.
