It’s unfortunate to hear about you experience at our club. We just had an extreme wind storm that came through the night before you played. This storm had damaging winds which caused trees/limbs to fall down along with debris all over the course. We are in the process of getting the course cleaned up and back to the shape it was in.

Hot deal was worth it, but at regular rate?

Went out with my son to play who hasn’t played in a few years. Took advantage of a hot deal at $24 each. At that rate I was pretty happy. Had I paid regular of $62 I would have been very disappointed. Greens were rough. Course was in decent shape except the greens and cart paths.

Bad experience - 1st time playing

Booked an 8:30am tee time for 2 players for what I thought was a decent rate for this level of course. Arrived at the course to find the parking lot full and a tournament was about to start. Staff in pro shop said the tournament was starting at 9am… He suggested it wouldn’t affect our round or slow us up and to pick any cart out back ready and pointed to hole 1. By hole 2 already waiting for 3 foursomes of seniors who had also started Approx. 8am-8:15am. Fairways, greens and sand traps were in good conditions a pleasant surprise. After finishing front nine, hole 10 had a foursome waiting on the tee box, the fairway and on the green. We decided to only play 9 with a round of 18 holes projected to take 5hrs. Would’ve liked to known ahead of booking about a tournament being held.

Simple Course

Overall this was a decently beautiful course. The layout was nice the people golfing were friendly. For someone like me it was fairly easy, although I wish there was some sort of layout and pin position available. This course had a couple holes where you didn't know if your green was on the left or right and without a group in front because the pace of play was fast ( me and a friend shot 18 in 3:15 ) kinda had to go with the gut.

Not bad but not great

Second time playing this course, although it has been quite a while since the first time I've played it. Clubhouse isn't bad and has a nice golf shop/grill. Range turf is in great shape. Course itself has some work to do. In some places, the fairways are lush and pretty easy to catch a good lie. Other spots are downright awful. At this time in the golf season, with ample time since soil temps have reached a good growing point, that's not a good sign. Greens were recently punched and were slow due to the topdressing. Give those a couple weeks to recover and they should be in pretty good shape. Some tees on the back nine hadn't been mowed at all. Course layout is relatively easy although some doglegs make for important club selection off the tee. Pace of play was excellent with hardly anyone out there on a Wednesday afternoon, as to be expected. Breezed through 14 holes in about 2.5 hours, but ran into a 3some that was all over the place that added almost an hour for the last 4 holes. Overall, a decent track that could use some work on some fairways but does allow for some error off the tee. Pay any more than $35 and you've paid too much.

Thank you for your feedback and we do hope you come back to play again. I would like to take a moment to address your concerns about our course conditions. We are just now getting in to Bermuda grass growing weather. For optimal growth, the night time temperatures need to reach 65 degrees or above consistently. The week you played, the nightly temperatures averaged in the low 50s. As you said, we did aerate the greens that Monday and Tuesday which had our entire maintenance staff working on cleaning up the plugs, topdressing greens, dragging in the sand, and fertilizer application. I am confident you’ll see improvements in the areas that you mentioned within a couple weeks. --
