Very Slow Pace Of Play

I’ve played here a few dozen times now, and the pace of play has been consistently VERY slow. There is easily a 5-10 minute wait at each tee box with no regard for time from other groups. The course is challenging and well maintained; but unfortunately I can rarely dedicate 5+ hours per round to play here which typically means I have to cut my round short and drive through back to the clubhouse.

Not a bad course for the price!

The course is in better shape than other courses around. Greens on some holes need some attention but fairways are in great shape.

Greens need help!

The course is a fun one. Unfortunately, the greens are anything but green...lumpy and bumpy. Perhaps the grass has not yet come in...?

Good fairway conditions, but greens could not use some attention

We played in a twosome and pace was great. Greens had some bare patches and a few crabgrass clumps. Overall, the course is acceptable but not stellar.

Course from tips longer then yardage

The course is a very good layout. Elevations can be severe. Lots of doglegs left and right. Don't be misled by yardage book. It will play longer. I'm a plus handicap golfer and you can go below par. As a 1st time player, not knowing layout, you can get caught in wrong placement of the ball. But landing areas a wider then you anticipate when you get to location. Fade and draw skills off the tee are needed from the tips. Greens were no where perfect, but all greens speed was consistent throughout. Pace of play was atrocious. Just awful. Easy 5 hr round. Allowing 5 some and not running strict pace of play made it at the end unbearable. Course can be a gem but until they crack down on pace, it will not draw really good golfers from outside of locals.

Sad

I bet this was a gem in its day. The layout is good, the people are friendly,, the price is cheap. Th be fare, great sand in the otherwise unmanicured traps. The subdivision and the course feel as if they are both near death.

Pace of play

We were behind a 5-some and they could have picked up the pace a little as we were a foursome. Nobody in front of them. There was a twosome behind us. When we finished 18 we noticed the 5-some started again on number one! Members? Greens still pretty lumpy.
