The course is ok, but....

The course is ok, but the greens are in terrible shape. Even where there was grass, it wasn't cut well and the balls didn't roll well. I couldn't recommend it for the serious golfer.

Awful Condition

This course has gone downhill. It’s never been great, but now it’s embarrassing. Tees have little grass, greens have many bare spots, with only dirt. I almost asked for my money back, and won’t play there again.

From the condition of the course and apparent lack of maintenance, it seems that the course is or will be going out of business.

We came and the starter was unfriendly from the start one guy at the front desk helped me out. No tee box and greens were all sand. Way better places for the money

Needs some attention

I am not sure if the course needs more time, for the Bermuda to kick in. The greens are true only two bad ones in my opinion. The pace of play was excellent.

Unfotunate

It's unfortunate that they have let the course go, they seem to be operating on a shoestring as almost everything needed attention. The staff was very nice and they valued our being there. Maybe the spring will bring more players and more revenue so that things can be improved. I enjoyed the day as we kind of knew going in that it was going to be practice round to loosen up for future rounds during our trip.

Great layout but very bad conditions

I would play this course over and over again, if it was maintained with any effort. The tee boxes were bad, the fairways were rough, most of the sand traps were a rock, and the greens were not playable. Having said that, the layout is fantastic. This course needs a major overhaul, but it could be a great course.
