Fun course

Great pace of play and a fun short course to get out and enjoy a nice day. If you believe your skills to be tour-ready this is probably not your spot. But if you live in reality, this is a great place to come have fun.

Good for price and location

I always like playing this course even though it is certainly not one of the best ones around. Remembering that this is a course my grandfather used to play after the war almost every Sunday, it has enough allure with that to keep me coming back, but the conditions of the greens were really bad today. But all in all it was a good experience and I will definitely go back. People there are great.

Value Course

Probably least expensive course in area. Some of the greens were in very poor condition.

Has some interesting holes, but a bit crowded in spots where holes are pretty close together. Often have golfers from other holes on your fairway. (sometimes I was the other golfer!)

Course is very short. Normally I play white tees. Played blues and course still felt on the short side.

All that being said I very much enjoyed the round.

Stress Free Golfing

We love how open RGA is from a beginners standpoint. You don’t have to worry about houses or roads or big wooded areas. I think it’s the perfect place to work on your driver and short game.

Very reasonable rates . Short course a lot of 300 yard par 4 from white tee, back tees not much farther fun and fast. Staff very friendly and course seemed well kept. Green smooth maybe a little on slow side but nice and well hold.

Hard to follow layout

The course was nice, I played the private 9 hole course, but the paths are not clear at all. I got very lost in between holes 7 and 8. The cart path should be clearly labeled and the private and public courses need better differentiation. Still had fun.
