Great day of golf

Course was well manicured for time of season. Staff is always friendly attentive and alert to needs and expectations. Pace was good. Though populated, golfers were good at staying with gold etiquette with allowing smaller groups to play through.

Great Public Course

As a high handicapper that hadn’t played in well over a year I think this course was very, very nice. I don’t need very much so to see how hard the staff works - groundskeepers, club house manager, and F & B staff are doing very well. Keep up the good work and I cannot wait to play your course again soon!

Greens were in poor shape

The course was not worth the fees charged. The greens were in terrible condition, barely puttable on some.

Great Run Course

We have played here several times. Staff is friendly and helpful each time. The course has been in great shape. Fairways are great, maybe because I don't hit into them very much.

Misled

Front nine was being aerated. Disgruntled pro shop employee just pointed at the sign saying this was the case with no other instructions on where to go or who to see.

5-some all over the golf course with the one behind me playing loud music from a boom box.

Fairways need to be cut.
