Great day on the course

Course was fun. We did have some wind and a little drizzle but it wasn't all that bad. We really enjoy playing here and look forward to playing again

Loved it!

Only played 9 holes, but wished we had booked for 18. No one on the course when we played and finished our 9 in 1.5 hours, totally could have played all 18.
Was windy and warm but great course and will play again next time I'm in the area.

Nice course that's challenging!

OK..so it is not as green as it could be. The greens and tee boxes are green..the faiways are a bit dry…but I have played on a lot worse. If you are paying $90 to play this..then yes..it is a rip off. If you get a GolfNow or TeeOff deal..which we did at $36 cart included…then I would say it is good value. Practice area is good..nice range with complementary balls and a nice practice putting green. The staff are friendly and welcoming. Like I said…if you are expecting a $90 course you will be disappointed, but if you come with an open mind..and a GolfNow deal..I think you will have an enjoyable day.

Terrible

I hardly ever leave reviews on this site. I read them and usually don’t believe them. 1 star for the greens. Every thing else at this course is a dog track. Terrible dry as a bone in March. Nothing is watered. Not worth 25 bucks. Go to Laughlin Ranch. Only good course around.

Good Potential Unrealized

First of all, the course has a good layout with many interesting holes. The staff are friendly and the clubhouse is very nice. Unfortunately, there was a 30+ MPH wind on this day which presented many challenges. We did not play the bunkers because they were basically hard pan with gravel. Like many courses in this area, the dormant Bermuda grass around the greens made chipping very difficult. I had the most success putting from off the green rather than chipping.. The greens themselves were very hard but putted true. Unfortunately, it was difficult to hold them even with high iron shots.

This course has a lot of potential but right now it is pretty rough around the edges. I doubt that I will play there again.

Fun links-style in the winter

The rye over-seed makes this course look like a links-style. It was fun to golf on a nice non-windy day. The greens were a little slow, but in good condition. Prompt check-in. Our TeeOff rate included the cart. The manager let us park our truck/trailer in the far west side while we enjoyed our round. Good pace.
