Declining

I have played this course numerous times since it’s inception. The condition of the course started declining several years ago and continues to do so. I read recent reviews and several people rated the conditions high, so we gave it a chance. On the first tee, I had a nice drive down the middle of the fairway and found my ball lying on hardpan with absolutely no grass underneath. Similarly on other holes, drove down the fairway to find my ball lying in 6”” of tall unmown patch of grass. Holes which used to have small ponds and water cascading from rock formations are now just dried up with cracked clay. Really sad.

Don't call this a golf course

This is the worst course anyone has ever played. Frisbee golf courses have more grass than this place. An absolute joke to call this a golf course.

Great layout but needs more TLC

I play this course all the time because of the price. Most courses have raised their rates a ton since the pandemic and i try to golf on a budget. Main pros; the greens are always in excellent shape and the layout of the course is great. Cons; fairways are very rough and dont get much water, lots of dirt in the middle of fairways, and 90% of bunkers are unplayable etc etc. Still worth playing since the value is there and you dont mind using the foot wedge to give yourself a better lie from time to time.

Worse course I’ve ever played, no exaggeration.

The one decent thing are the greens. Besides that all fairways are dirt piles, horrendous conditions.

Not Good

The greens were okay and there is no grass on any fairways tough to even enjoy when your always hitting off dirt or looking for a ball. Traps are all under repair or not maintained. They are not watering this course except for greens and tee boxes

Still bad

Haven’t played here in awhile because the course was in bad shape. Even after a few years, it’s still in bad shape. Fairways is more dirt than grass, needs some serious TLC.

Subpar golf course

This course was undoubtedly the worst course I have played in my entire life. The fairways were dirt the greens were alright but the layout was a complete joke. Save yourself the money and play somewhere at least somewhat decent. The golf cart barely moved and the pro shop guy said we needed to constantly pump the hydraulics. Horrendous

Poor Condition

The course was in pretty rough shape. Bunkers are overgrown with weeds, 50% of the fairway is dirt, most water features are dried up and riddled with mosquitos, and just overall not in great condition. It was cheap and not at all crowded so I guess you get what you pay for!

eagle crest nest

Actually enjoyed the round for the price. I just thought it looked run down from the past. I pictured on several holes how majestic it might have been. Greens were in excellent shape. Sand bunkers had no sand on most holes and fairways were real dry.
