Good Day, Rainy Day

We got 11 holes in while dodging rain storms. The last one got us. Decided to head to their bar and grab a few beers. Course was in pretty good shape and you could fly the balls to the hole and they were sticking. Fairways were very tight and you have to be a good ball striker. Make sure you leave a little time for the 19th hole. Great beer selection and had a girl singing live music on the back deck. Didn’t worry with a rain check since I was visiting from out of town.

Good course, always make me feel bad for using golf now

The course is a solid course with extra fun having 3 9's. The distance isn't what gets you, it's the layout. A lot of holes where you have to hit a couple of really good shots to have a look at par. Always in good shape.
The pro shop folks always make me feel crummy for using golf now, though. Anytime they see we booked through that, there is a role of the eyes and they always tell us to book directly through them next time.

Nice course

The fairways are starting to come around. Still a good idea to play the course after at least one dry day as there are some definite wet spots. Overall the course played well. The greens are in good shape after being aerated. A few more weeks and the course will be in pretty good shape.

Awesome place and people

Putting greens are perfect even this time of year. 27 holes, lots of distancing. Practice amenities all around. Pro shop crew are welcoming!

No on course amenities

Could have used a few more directional signs to the tee boxes but my biggest complaint would be no on course bathrooms available. Closed for the season? Come on you should at least rent some north potty’s

Sloppy wet conditions, bunkers unplayable, cartpaths in poor condition - especially dangerous is the descent down number 7 on the west course.

Rough Shape

It didn’t help that it rained heavily the night before but you can tell the course is in pretty rough shape even when it’s dry.

Course was wet due to previous day's rain. Bunkers unplayable, some fairways and tees wet, cart paths are deteriorating, greens in decent shape, slow group ahead - had several holes open ahead of them.

Okay course for winter conditions

Got a sweet deal for only $15 to play today
Course conditions were not great - dormant grass everywhere- greens brown so forget about trying to read subtle breaks esp near the cup
Hard ground so lots of roll where it wasn’t wet
But overall for $15 can’t beat just wanting to go out to play golf with no plan to score well
I shot about 3-4 strokes over my normal score

Pretty good

Greens very good but a little slow. Held approach shots well. Fairways on the north were a little hairy and needed mowing. Course is a little rough around the edges but overall fun and challenging. Several sets of tees for different levels of golfers. Most bunkers were in good condition. Staff very friendly. Played here off/on for years and will continue to do so.

Cartpaths disintegrating, bunkers unplayable, some fairways and tee boxes very wet, greens in good shape. Very slow pace, close to give hours.
