Nice day

Have been playing this course for years. It hasn’t always been in the best shape last few years but was much better today. Greens were really good! All and all a pretty good value for the money

Beautiful fall day

The course was in really good shape. The young guy in the shop was very helpful. We played in 3 1/2 hours with not a cloud in the sky and 70 degrees. Just a beautiful fall day!

Very Busy

Were scheduled to play South and West. Some holes there were 3 groups waiting at the tee box. Decided to play South twice. Second nine on the south was smooth sailing.

Cool Sunday afternoon

I always enjoy playing this course. We were supposed to play South and West. We got stacked up to 3 groups waiting at the tee box. After the front 9 we went to the West #1. It was backed up also. We decided to play the South again and smooth sailing. Our tee time was 2:02 so we wanted to get 18 in before it got dark. Normally I wouldn't rush. If we stayed on the West we probably wouldn't have gotten done.

Course conditions below par

The greens had been punched and sanded recently so very bumpy and slow. Could have done better job of removing debris from green and rolling. Sand traps are in bad shape with standing water or hardpacked. Fairways were good.
4 1/2 hour round felt slower since we were a twosome.

Good Value

Enjoyed playing but very slow pace as we were behind a fivesome with 2 walking and 2 riding in cart. Maybe weekday would be less crowded than a Saturday. Course in good shape with all the rain we've had this summer. Very limited grill offering only packaged food, We will definitely play again.

South /North

South course was really nice, condition and layout, but the North couse seems to be neglected. Greens have a lot of rough spots.

Walked

Had to walk, even though paid for cart. They were forcing me to cart up with a smoker. I am allergic to smoke and cannot ride with someone who smokes. I walked, but did not get any money refunded for doing so. This is the second time this has occurred at this course.

Had a great time.

I enjoyed playing the course with my two sons. We are on vacation. There has been a lot of rain and the south course was very wet. Beyond that we had a good time and the course was nice.

Nice course

The course was in decent condition, there were some spots undergoing construction but it was ok. Cart paths pretty beaten up but fairways and greens in good shape. Very pleasant course to play, avg challenge, not too hard. Good for taking company.

Course fairways were plush and greens mostly in good shape. Food is very limited for lunch and no breakfast served. Somewhat isolated location for meals off course.
