A good outing

This was my first time out this year due to a broken back surgery. 9 holes was just the right amount. Course was in good shape.

GOLFNOW USER

After waiting over twenty minutes I finally found the employee parking a cart. I figured since I paid in full online that I would be able to grab cart. He said it would be an add’l $10 and I needed to check in inside. My friend and I just looked at each other and followed him. After saying he will take the loss and take it up with you, we asked for a second cart. He said no as it was just the two of us. I told him we are charged $10 each so if we were willing to pay for it, what difference would it be? He then said that he was too busy and couldn’t spare the cart. Really??? We had the place to ourselves outside of maybe six other golfers. Very skeptic and will have second thoughts in booking here in the future.

Great place for players learning the game.

My wife is just learning to play, and has graduated from pitch and putt to a more authentic golf experience. Minerals is a great place for players that are making that transition. Plenty of obstacles for a fun challenge, but not enough to create a frustrating experience. Most hole lengths are short enough for those who are still learning how to strike for distance, while the blue tees offer enough yardage for seasoned players to break out the longer irons, and an occasional wood. The tee boxes, fairways and greens have all been in great shape the two rounds we have played there. We will definitely be back.

PS. If you hit the ball to the right on the 4th green, don't go get it unless you want to get yelled at by a crazy old dude. Our playing partner was berated quite vehemently for accidentally slicing his tee shot toward the condos.

No signs on course

Loved the course as I am a starter and allows me to be aggressive and not fear losing balls. Lots of bunkers but it sure beats water lol. Only wish there were some markings either at the holes or on the pathways

Great practice course

This course is a great place to work on some iron shots. Greens weren't amazing and some bunkers had rock issues but other than that a nice little course.

Good Value, Quality Golf

Good value, 18 holes with cart for $26. Played in 3 hours. Good course for Average Golfers, not for beginners or Kids learning the game. Elevations make a poor walking course. They should build some bridges for more direct access to greens after hitting your approach shots. Greens are undulating, so very quick on the wrong side of a putt or chip.

Wouldn’t recommend

I waited 30 min for a cart that I prepaid for.
There were neighborhood girls walking around in the course randomly.
Loud motorcycles near 8th and 9th holes.
Would not go back.
