goat track

Worst maintained course I have ever played. The fairways were overgrown, full of weed and goose droppings. Greens were unmovwd, full of crabgrass, and unrolled. The traps were empty of sand , hard packed and full of weeds. Tee boxes overgrown, even on a tee you were barely above the weeds/grass. This was an unbelievably bad experience, quit after 9 holes, paid for 18, kept hoping it would improve! Do not come here, this is not golf. I am going to try and get a refund from Golfnow

Morning at Sunset

The new owner & staff were absolutely wonderful! Seems like there’s a lot going on to upgrade the course. Course is still rough, but for the money…thanks for a great time & love the new Club House & bar!

My day.

Pro shop staff was very personable and friendly. I Enjoy the layout of course. Tee boxes are regular grass and it was high. Fairways on front were not mowed yet as they were working on back nine. A lot of the greens were in rough shape making putting difficult and some bunkers were like concrete. However pace picked up on the back and it was a beautiful day to spend with my fiancé at the course.. the course has a great deal of potential and is always nice to play.

Greens had big bare spots

I was a member there 15 years ago and the course has really went down hill. Big bare spots on the greens and the fairways needed cut bad you hit the fairways and loose balls other golfers were complaining also. They put lots of money in pro shop and restaurants they should spent some on the course

Hard Times

I’ve played this course a few times over the past 15-20 years. This was my first time playing since it was bought and converted to Sunset. It has definitely seen better days (in all fairness it was like this when the new owners purchased it). The greens and fairways consist of varying mixtures of grass, dirt, crabgrass, etc.

I’m pulling for them to turn things around and get the course into the shape it was many years ago. I’m not a course owner, but I think they didn’t take the right approach. The bar, restaurant, and pro shop look great. The carts are new and have GPS for yardages. However, I’m not sure why that investment wouldn’t have been more beneficial to the course? Better watering, less crab grass, maybe some fringes around the greens.

Hopefully these hard times will change and the course will improve.

Very nice course but needs greens and fairways addressed. Very disappointed with the condition of the fairways. Grass was high. Greens were half dead grass and very bumpy. Beautiful location and awesome staff.

What a beautiful place to play golf!

I played on Oct. 10 the the Sunset Golf Club’s cross country tourney. As if the course wasn’t hard enough, now I have to swing at a different green. It was a blast! We had such a great time, it was beautiful, no noise from the road and everyone was so friendly. I would recommend this course to anyone - beginners or experts - you will not be disappointed!

9/11 outing

Tee boxes were very hard/dry. Greens were hard to putt with dry/burned out areas. New golf carts were excellent with GPS onboard.

The course has great potential BUT

Course has a great layout. I also liked the GPS on the golf cart. However, the condition of the course was horrible. No grass on either the tee boxes or the greens. While putting your ball would roll over a weed and change directions. Tried to play rule that if in fairway you could move to a grassy spot but sometimes there was none nearby

Off Course Amenities

The club house, course, carts, and pace were great. The course itself simply wasn’t in good shape. Weather hasn’t been great in the area, I’m sure that’s a factor. Carts had GPS and the clubhouse looked newly renovated. I’d say they are working to improve!

Staff are working hard to get the course back to form, but have a long way to go. Off course amenities and staff are great.
