Bad Greens

Course is overall in decent shape, but the greens are not good. They are green and that is about it. I thought they punched them a while ago, and by now, one would think they would be better. There are other courses in the general vicinity that are in much better condition and provide a similar challenge. Rate are way too much for their current conditions. This is a $25 course any day of the week.

Gods round

The course was in average shape. They were aerating the greens so the greens were not the best. The weather was nice except for the fact it was pretty hot today.

Good time!

We played as a twosome behind a VERY slow foursome, but thankfully two of the four dropped off after the front nine. Still awfully slow, and on a blistering hot day, that was hard to deal with. We still managed to enjoy the course, one of our favorites, and especially appreciated the upgrades to the on course restrooms and the pro shop.

Water needed

Play the course almost weekly. A favorite. Unfortunately with the greens recently aerated and no rain the greens were in rough shape. I will continue to play here but it was a rough go. Hope it rains soon. Good news is that fox squirrels are eating well

Pace of play, yet again…

I’ve played this course probably 50 times and it seems to have the same few problems each time. Course was dry (like everywhere right now) and recently punched with a few greens containing a decent amount of weeds. Other than that all tee boxes and fairways were in solid condition. But the pace of play is always awful here. Was in a twosome later in the day with only three other groups on the front but each one took 20 minutes a hole and didn’t once offer to let us pass. Had to skip a couple and then didn’t have time to finish them after the back. Just having a single ranger or employee out there every now and again checking on the pace and to inform groups to speed up would be super helpful. Staff was very friendly like always. A nice track for the money.

First Time Playing

Very nice and staff was also very helpful. Enjoyed myself and the person I played with

First time playing there and was nicely surprised by the layout, my only complaint is that there was no warning about the water hazards on the T-boxes or on the card...

Excellent

Played on 5/19/21. Course was excellent. Great staff and pace of play was perfect. They have done a great job restoring this course to its former glory. I so much appreciate all the effort to bring back this classic layout. Thank you!
