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.
Great training course
Great for beginners. You are able to practice with all of your clubs. Greens are getting better since I first golfed here . No one to make you hurry your play. I highly recommend this place.
I try to come here to work on my short game.
Not worth the money
The course of a poorly maintained. Fairway grass was long and many gopher holes. Greens were the same. I paid $22 per person and a $9.96 service charge on the app and the regular holiday price at the course was $19. We reserved a 6:50am tee time on the app and the course did not open until 7 am. Overall, not a great experience.
A few things are being corrected but this time of year it should be expected. There was no inconvenience and those areas did not effect our play.
I plan on playing here it offers some great holes to help work on my game.
Very Bad Shape Course
I played this course for 5 holes only and gave up. Everything was in very bad shape. I didn’t enjoy it at all. This course shouldn’t be open, it should be fixed first.
Nice little course
This is a good course to work on your short game. Pace of play was decent, finished it in 4-1/2. All greens are reachable in one to two strokes. The fairways & greens were in fair condition. The staff is friendly. I play this course about once a month or so.
