Fun course to play

We enjoyed playing this course. There’s lots of water so placement of your ball is important. Some greens and tee boxes were in rough shape. Overall great course to play for what it cost us to play

Greens and tee boxes were some of the worst that I've played in the area. Bunkers were not maintained and the fairways we're mediocre at best. If I didn't have a gift card, I probably would not have played the course and will be giving the remaining two rounds on the card to my ex-wife's boyfriend.

A general lack of greenskeeping

Fairways were in a general good condition. Tee’s and greens were in a general poor condition. Sand traps were a joke!
Very slow pace of play. No marshal observed!

enjoyable day

Slow foursome ahead of me but no one behind so had time to practice chips and putts.
Greens very slow but hot weather had them mowing higher than normal.
Well kept muni.
Overall, very enjoyable round.

Greens were covered in sand and tee box were hard packed. Should have brought a drill

The staff was incredibly nice and we had a fun time. Our only problem was not knowing about the just aerated greens...
Thank you!

Course conditions are just horrible

Course conditions are horrible greens are not kept at all it seams like and the fairways feel like you are hitting of the dirt everytime and tee box’s are uneven but for the price I guess that it is to be expected
