Challenging 9 hole the wind was blowing pretty well which made the course more difficult to play.
Good iron practice
I came just to practice with my irons. Worked on short game mostly. Hit a few good tee shots with 3 Wood. Because of a bad back I can’t swing to good with my irons, I do not get the distance that I need to get to or close to the greens. I mostly use my hybrid clubs.
You could say I got my 7th and 8th shots down... just need to work on shots 1-6 and my game will be better... lol.
I just need to manage my game with the clubs I am used too. I mostly play biggie golf with a few pars now and then, birdies have come but not as often as I would like..
The greens had started to get better but were really bad today, really bouncy and sandy.
Improving every week
My two playing partners always notice how the course is always getting better each week that we play here.
Staff is always very friendly and polite. From fairways to the greens constant improvement.
We use this course to practice. We are seeing a little more progress each time we play and will continue to play here.
Looks nothing like the pictures!!! Course is a mess. Rather play in an open parking lot than this dump. Shouldn’t even be called a golf course
Great practice course
For one, Bruce is and has always been great. He is very friendly and very respectful to my friends and I.
This course is great when you want to work on your game and work on both driver and irons.
The greens are not the best, but I try to move my balloon a circle to where I can get a good shot as if they greens were in better shape.
Always get hooked up with other people and have never been disappointed, people are always friendly.
Good for 1st Tee program
9th hole closed for 1st Tee. Greens unkept. Pace of play great. Hand carts broken. Not worth the money but a great course for kids to practice and play..
The day started out great on the first round but when we got back to the first tee there was a back up. Wait time was 20-30 minutes .
There was a group of teens about 13 who looked like they were there to just have fun. They caused the back up because only a couple of them knew how to play the game. Problem was they wen out in three groups of four, but only one set of clubs in each group. One teen was clowning teeing off with a putter, they spent so much time talking and loud. The three groups were just ahead of us on the second hole we passed them cause 8 of them were all on the green . No one on the third tee.
Then we skipped hole four to pass the first of their group who were wrestling on the green and blasting inappropriate music and loud. First time I ever saw this. I will still be back to play love to just practice my game here.
Great for practice
Love to pause this course as my chance to practice with long and short game. Just starting out playing golf, not very good as of yet but really looking forward to playing and learning the game with my limitations. I just need and want to control the things I can. I really love the game.
Great practice course
Staff is always friendly and accommodating.
Greens are not in the best shape but fairways are in really god condition.
I come to practice at this course because of the low prices, the staff and I am able to play quickly without being rushed.
Not very good when using my irons, so this gives me the much needed time for practicing the lots of little things I need to work on to improve my game.
Great Value for Beginners!
First time here, and we’d come back. Great value ($15 for 18 holes). Wanted an easy course for 4 (3 beginners) on Friday of Thanksgiving weekend. This was all we found available at 7:30. Frost delay of 2 hours was frustrating, but understandable- until we saw the course, which is a lot of dirt, dead trees and terrible greens. Frost damage? Still, some fun holes, and beautiful surrounding countryside. Pace was slow, but that was expected. Wouldn’t play here for more than $30, but will be back (with the beginners) for $15 hot deals!
Definitely got my money’s worth. Player here as a warm up round for my first game in a while and it was just what I needed.
