Friendly people, uneven course conditions
Played on a Sunday afternoon in June. It was enjoyable. People there are nice. Surprisingly, we zipped around in 3.5 hours. The course conditions were uneven. The course was wet. Some of the bunkers were filled with water. Tee boxes are rough. Uneven, tee-strewn, muddy. Fairways were a bit shaggy, but I’m not sure how much they have been able to cut it. In contrast, the greens were in excellent shape. Smooth and nicely kept. The course is quirky. The first hole is probably the worst on the course, but it gets better quickly. Many shortish par 4s. With a few really long par 5s mixed in. It’s pretty tight at the beginning, and opens up a bit after the first 5 holes. I would recommend this course, but I will probably try some others before I return.
The staff was excellent. The course was well maintained and had some interesting layouts. It was a little dangerous because all of the greens are right next to the next tee box, so you could potentially get hit with someone’s approach shot while waiting to tee off. I feel the last two holes are pretty unfair to female golfers and players that are not long off the tee. I have a back injury and cannot really hit that far anymore. Both 17 and 18 tee shots have to be 150 in the air to make it over the water from the reds and I just don’t have the club anymore. Th wildlife on the course was great and there is plenty of shade for when you have to wait to hit. Again, the staff here was fantastic. They were very personable and made it easy for first time at the course players. My daughter did miss getting her hotdog at the turn because the food shuts down at 4, but that’s understandable.
Really nice but Tee boxes & cart path need improvement.
I am gong to place a star assessment to each area i reviewed
OVERALL 3.5 STARS ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ & ½⭐
Overall this is a nice golf course and I would go back.... but i will identify the issues with the course.
STAFF. (5 STAR-⭐ ⭐⭐⭐⭐)
The staff person I interacted with was friendly, understanding as I was a little late for my tee time and accommodating as found me a slot quickly and made sure I was okay with it.
COST TO PLAY (3 ⭐⭐⭐)
l felt the cost was a little high as i paid slightly less at a nearby course which was impeccably maintained. (Although other places back 9 is potentially more difficult).
TEE BOXES. ( 1 STAR -⭐ )
The signage at the tee boxes are not good... they are not visible enough, no real information about hole (info is on score card... don't like score card either as too big, bland). Tee hole grass could use some love but hitting off a Tee most of the time.
CART PATH (3 STARS⭐⭐⭐)
The cart path at places were good, okay and bad... average most of the time but some areas need attention.
BRIDGES ON CARTPATH(2 STAR⭐⭐)
There are wooden connecting bridges on cart path almost all were sturdy enough but a couple needed fixing as there should be no cracked boards on something you have to drive over)
FAIRWAY, ROUGH & HOLES
(3⭐⭐⭐ . ½ ⭐)
The course grass is nice and well maintained. The rough was fair and not overly abundant. The holes were average with some very good and others just average condition.
Challenging course (at least for me who still considers myself as bit very good) as there are several holes with bends to the left and right prior getting to the flag which is typical for the courses in the area. There are 1 or 2 well placed water features but not too problematic.
Again I would play here again, but this is a nice course, but a little overpriced .
Sorry no photos taken.
Greens are amazing
Overall the course is in great shape. The greens were very impressive!
