Nice course

Very Nice course, not too difficult. Too bad there wasn't a marshall on the course to speed up the foursome in front of us. They were at least 3 holes behind so it took 4hrs 45 minutes to play

Pretty good course / ver unorganized

Took bag drop 20 minutes to load us up, had to play front side twice as pace of play was soo slow. Construction everywhere and no signage to direct you to the tee through all of the mess.

Area around course under construction.

Course cart paths were hard to follow as there was a lot of construction for new homes around the course.
Constuction equipment was very noisy at times around the course.

Nice course, a bit of a drive out from MB.

Course was good but not quite up to expectations. Major construction project underway around the clubhouse, effecting the starting and finishing holes. Several fairways were in rough shape, a bit "lumpy". The collars of many of the greens were saturated, wet and very, soft. Still enjoyed the round though!

Certainly someone can do something to make the first area you see more appealing. A little white paint. A weed whacker. I know the cart guys are pretty busy but this first impressions area could take some TLC. The range and putting green could be much better.

I thoroughly enjoyed the course on a wet windy day. I’ll be back — heard it’s under new management. I have high hopes.

Not Good Conditions

Jones in times past has been in pristine condition. Now they have ripped up the driving range and removed many buffering trees to make room for 30 houses. The course has not been maintained and the cart paths in several areas have been destroyed by earth moving equipment. Sand traps are washed out. I hate to ever rate a course badly, but this one was quite disappointing.

Nice layout, great staff

The course had a lot of construction goin on around it, but the fairways and greens were in good shape. The starters were helpful and would recommend playing one of the three courses here.

Nice course, but starter needs to do a better job.

Arrived about an hour before tee time and greeted cheerfully by staff at the bag drop. Starter could have done a better job sending golfers out to the course. Caught up to the group in front of me on the 2nd hole and they told me there were groups in front already getting backed up. I joined the twosome that was behind me, I started by myself, to help reduce waiting between shots. The starter should have paired us up if he knew what he was doing. While the course layout was a nice challenge and fair, pace of play was particularly slow. No marshals were present at any time to help speed up play. At one point, there were three groups waiting on a tee box. With that being said, I liked the course and would play it again.

Good round but could use a lttle help

We like thus course but had a couple of complaints. When we arrived the starter never checked when our tee time was. we went in and payed and were 20 minutes early, went back out and the stff was tking care of a group of six locals. ///thgey had not started to load our bags, and when I asked what the starting tie for the group they were working on they said it was after ours. they then rushed to get us setup and put us out with this large group right on our tail for the first few holes. The course was in relatively good condition but the rough was a little long and the greens were a little slow but were true.
