Good course

Really nice course and fun to play. The girl at the clubhouse had an attitude that I used the GolfNow app because "they don't get any money from that". Other than that, everything was great. Basically the only one on the course at 7AM on a Friday.

Course has potential. The greens were in good shape. The fairways need attention, as well as tee boxes. Nice course to practice

Greatly improved pace of play

I have complained in the past of 6 people in a group slowing down play. This issue seems to have been resolved.
The greens are in great shape, however the fairways and cart paths need a lot of work.
The course could benefit by having a beverage and food cart on the course at least on the weekends.
Overall good course.

You asked

No irrigation in the fairways. Very dry. Greens lush and slow. A good place if you just want to get out with some friends.

Poor management

I play this course frequently and I have seen a decline in the course over the last several years. Some staff are not the most friendly. The fairways have huge areas with no grass at all. The tee boxes are uneven. The actual cup for hole is never in the ground far enough which cause it to raise the ground around the hole so putts break different directions at the hole. These things need to be addressed by whoever is in charge and hire someone with experience of how to take care of a golf course.

Slow play Again 6 player in one group

For the second time in 3 weeks we were a 2 some with a group of 6 players in front of us fortunately we only had to put up with them for 9 holes. we were able to get around them on # 10. I don't understand why the course ranger allows this, maybe he was to busy looking for balls or practicing his chipping.
This course could really benefit with a food and beverage cart out on the course especially on the the hot summer days.
Greens are in great shape. Fairways and cart paths need a lot of work.

Used to be excellent

Been playing this course for many years. Took the last year off to focus on my kids travel sports. Decided to start up again and was excited to play my home course. It was a big let down. The course is in pretty rough shape. Fairways are crab grass and mud, tee boxes are like the rough at most courses. Greens were in good shape but it’s not east to get there in reg. I like playing all the courses in the area but this one is moving off the list until the conditions improve. The staff is still great, they are good people. The grill is also not open.
