Excellent course for the value

Great course to work those mid irons and wedges.
Definitely not a course for the long ball hitters off the tee although there are a few holes where you can bomb it but you need to be highly accurate with those longer drives. Greens were a little slow but a welcomed change from the lightning fast greens I’m used too. It was a fun Saturday afternoon and I’d definitely go back again.

Only played 9.

This was my worst experience yet. They grouped me with a group that was in a rush and always drive forward before I took my swing. Also one of the staff members was very rude about my son driving on the fairway on a par 3. This was his first time playing and didn't know. We were so frustrated we stopped after the front 9.

Decent public course

This is one of my goto courses. The condition is good and the staff friendly. A great course for beginners and just some fun golf because it's relatively flat with a few water hazards.

The course was in excellent shape, however the greens were slower than they look. This is a nice course and the hotel on the site was a great convience.
