Great Value Play

While the course was cart path only, I was walking so that didn't impact me too much. Sad for those cart people, fairways were soaked, either due to recent rain or someone forgot to turn off the irrigation. It was very wet. Greens were therefore very soft, making them very approachable. For the money, I don't think there is another NOVA course that compares.

Solid public course

For what you pay, this course is great. While not a long or super challenging course, it is perfect for a fun/casual round. I would say though that pace of play on the weekend is not great. There is no ranger and there were times in which pace of play was unacceptable. If you care about pace of play, I would only go here during weekdays.

5 Long Hours

Stuck behind 4 golfers who should have been playing a par 3 course, given their ability level. Why would these golfers be in a tournament given their skill level is beyond me…
Most golfers walk this course so the pace of play can be really slow…
I won’t be back…

Nice course

Interesting layout but very fair. Yardage markers could be improved as could the carts but still one of my favorite courses

Old style course, fun to play

Tree lined, old style layout course that will allow you to score low due to it's fairly short length and modest trouble spots. The course is in good condition and is flat enough to make it a good walking tract. Many holes feature fairways lined with mature trees and the houses that are on the course are well set back so as not to spoil the old style feel. I shot a comfortable 77 off the "blues" but I think I'll try the tips next time to make it a tougher challenge. You will enjoy it.

Great, even on a rainy day

I was very impressed by the condition of the course with all of the rain we had. Not one plugged ball,and greens still rolled nicely, even though a little slower than usual. Well done, superintendent.

Good Course

Starter misplaced my pre-paid on line tee time so he had to slide me into a group. Good course with some decent character, definitely needs a regular marshal to ensure the pace.of play (took us 4.5 to play).

Good, shorter course.

One of my local favorites, good value related to other courses in the area. Great for walking. Definitely a shorter course so if you like 6500 yds + courses this isnt for you.
