Decent course and excellent food amenities

It was hot and dry, so tees and most fairways were extremely hard.
The back 9 for some reason was better. Greens were in decent shape as these are watered.
I was able to get a fantastic deal through Golfnow and we had a great time. Hopefully they get some water on those tees and fairways soon.

Starter had zero clue about golf. He was awful, and I ended up only playing 9 as it was that bad

Took 3 1/2 hours to play 9 holes. Paid for 18 but left after 9. No ranger so players were dropping balls after bad shots and too much talking o. The tee boxes when they could have hot. Played this course for many years but first time I’ve ever been disappointed ☹️.

Beginning the new spring season I did not expect it to be perfect

The course as a whole was good. The greens were fertilized with a crystal type, which when the ball ran over it you heard a click. It was not pretty to watch the ball change course, so putting was bad.

Nice course!

Course was in good shape with this time of year, only complaint was greens were very slow. Spoke with a ground screw guy and he said they were going to mow for the first time next week. Can’t wait to play it when the greens are faster. Front side has more water. Good challenge.

Average country course

Not a lot to write here except the pro shop/restaurant looked nice. The course itself was less memorable.

Not to difficult but still has some challenge holes

Always enjoy playing here. Greens in good shape even after very little rain. Retired recently and finally getting back to playing golf after a couple years off.

No booking record.

I booked a tee time at "12:00" online.
But they didn't have that record.
12:00 o'clock was actually right in the middle of 2 big competitions and they could not let any visitor tee off.
On top of that 12:00 o'clock was not a tee time according to their pitch. 11:54 or 12:02 could be a tee time.
In the end, I could start at 13:30 after the competitions.

Whose mistake??????

I like this course.

The greens were not in very good shape. Too many different types of grass and the putting was not smooth at all. Too many pits and the putting line was never straight.
