Golf is Golf

The course was very brown, choppy and the greens were not smooth. Golf is golf and you still have to put the ball in the hole so given the choice of playing this course or not playing at all I would play this course

Just the start.

The course was apparently bought not long ago by some friends that are trying to bring it back to life. It was a very fun course with some challenging holes. The greens are petite compared to others around which create a more challenging round. It is definitely a goat track at the moment, but definitely one worth the money. I’m curious and excited to see what the new ownership will do to this high potential course.

HUGE IMPROVEMENT

Since the new ownership and staff took over this course, they have made a tremendous difference. I grew up playing this course and it was ok at one time. Then went downhill for years. I’m glad the guys are making it nice again and thank them for not just letting it go like so many other courses close by. And 100% recommend this course to anyone, and see the huge improvements being made. Good Good stuff !!

Spend the extra money and play on a better coarse.

Not very good

Fairways are in terrible shape. They put sand on the fairways which is terrible for the grass unless you aerate the fairways first. It was pretty expensive for what the conditions of the course are. Wouldn’t recommend.

I am sorry for your bad experience. Our fairways have been aerated and top dressed. The Bermuda has 90% of the fairways covered. We have the lowest 9 & 18 hole rates in the county. Please understand we took over this course 8 months ago and have invested capital and man hours into this renovation. Please contact me at zach@eliturf.com if you have any further questions.

Thanks,
-Zach

Greens Ok

The greens are alright, but many of the fairways are missing huge swaths of grass. Out of all the bunkers on the course I only noticed sand in 1, all of the rest were hardpack a and weeds.

Thank you for your review!

Please understand that we took over the grounds of this course in December of 2020.
We killed all weeds in the fairway and have aerated and top dressed to encourage the Bermuda to fill in the bare areas. The course had no bunkers upon our arrival and we have plans to reconstruct all of them.

We thank you for your business and welcome you back as our course is improving every week.

Barely Managed

Green were weedy and about dead. Fairways are fescue. More like a pasture with greens. They would not honor my GolfNow Tee time. Let me play for same price, but I had to pay them and get my money back. Needs to be dropped from GolfNow.com.
