Good Course

Great value, it is very well taken care of. Some challenging holes too. Cant beat the value. Just a bit far from more or I would play more often. I would recommend this course to anyone.

No starter, so people just go off the back 9 in front of people making the turn. They had a number of singles go off. Paring singles, even doubles might help pace of play, which currently, is extremely slow.

Best Course in the Area

This is a beautiful, challenging, unique course. The greens play like a course that costs 3x more to play. Very friendly staff, great pace of play, and the best possible value.

Divots and Ball Marks

I understand this course gets a lot of play but it’s ridiculous how many players do not repair divots and ball marks!
This is a great course at very reasonable prices. It would be great if management would really start stressing the importance of repairing your divots and ball marks when playing.
Let’s all do our part to keep Flying B the awesome course it is.

Terrible Management DO NOT PLAY HERE

Booked a tee time at 5:30 (plenty of other open times around it as well) only to show up and find four groups waiting on number 10 to tee off. We then had to wait 10-15 minutes for a cart, as none were available. When we attempted to go off the front, we were told by a league member that we could not, since there was a league.

We were NOT told this by anyone in the clubhouse while checking out, nor was a starter anywhere in sight. When someone did come out to finally help us, he was EXTREMELY RUDE and lied about telling us to go off 10. I instantly asked for a refund and he tried to short me 15 dollars. I had to ask for the extra 15.

Me and my friends have spent thousands of dollars here over the years and we will not be coming back. Unbelievably bad course management.

Great course to play for the money!!

Great course for the money. Not a real long course from white tees but still challenging due to all the dog legs. It's a placement type course. Risk reward. Love playing here. Greens and fairways always in great shape.
