Ruff Ruff

There are quite a few barking dogs living on the golf course who do not like golfers, lol

Course is not in tiptop shape so I took liberty with improving my lie when necessary

There was no Marshall and sadly there was a group of 6 (not so good golfers) that were allowed to play together. This should not be allowed as it caused a back up behind that group and they were not interested in letting anyone play through.

Nice Course but Greens Need Work

This is a beautiful, well outlined course. The people that work there are fantastic. The food is insanely good. But the greens are in such terrible shape. Played here in April and they were fine. Now the grass is sticking up like the rough. The holes are puckered and they are missing large swathes of grass. There were long line of short grass rows like they missed mowing them. Still, it was such a great experience I would definitely go back.

Love the course layout

Had an enjoyable round overall. Course is challenging but accessible. Only thing: the greens were fast but need some major TLC. Many of them were in horrible condition and some areas looked diseased.

Not in good condition

I was surprised it was not in better condition. Greens need attention. The fairways had a lot of dead areas.

Rude Dude

Start with the good: greens were fantastic. Fast and true. Fairways were ok which had us bumping the ball in order to play from an even lie. Overall the course is in good shape.

Unfortunately, dude in the pro shop was rude and unwelcoming. Treated us like second class citizens and it might have been because we utilized GolfNow. First tee was empty and no other groups were to be seen. Said we couldn’t go off prior to our time. With about 7 minutes to go I asked if we could start and he said the foursome checking in was the time before us so we would have to wait. We were just two. He insisted that we go off after the foursome. The foursome recognized dude was wrong and being nasty so, of course they let us out in front. If they want the public play, then why do they make the public feel so unwelcome? Might need a more friendly pro shop.

Great layout, greens need more time

I love the layout! Pace of play was fabulous 4:15. Greens were punched a few weeks ago and still need time to grow in. Other than that everything was great.

Had a great time!

My wife and I had the course to ourselves, or so it felt that way. We had never played this course because as a private country club we didn’t have access. Fairways are very wide. Not difficult to play well. Thoughtful layout. Really enjoyed it. Condition was ok. With our extremely hot summers and drought conditions can’t really blame it on groundskeepers.
