Horrible

After we payed for 18 holes, the course told us on the first tee that we only had until 4:30 to cross the bridge and finish our round. Meanwhile our tee time was at 12:50 and they didn’t inform us of this until after the round. They refused to speed up the pace of play forcing the round to take 5 hours and they had workers driving around harassing us about bringing the carts in on time, which wouldn’t even allow us to finish all 18 holes we payed for. Horrible place with crappy conditions and horrible understanding of customer service. Everybody in our 4some got a hot dog at the turn and the total bill was 51 dollars. A large range bucket is the size of a small and is 13 dollars. A complete waste of a day and ruined family time. If this was the last course on earth, I would hang up my golf shoes and be happy with the end of my playing career.

Greens hard and fast

We played our round in late October and from tee box to apron of greens the course was very interesting and challenging. The Bermuda greens are too hard and fast for my skill level. Staff are exceptional!!

Great Views

Course was in decent condition for recent dry spell. Staff was great. Paths and bridge across the river could use a little work. Best part was probably the views and scenery.

Fairways and Greens

Terrific conditions! Few cart paths were a little rough and bumpy but not the green fairways. Love the par 3’s. Bermuda Greens were fast and true!

A True Gem

I play here a couple times a week Andy never get tired of it. Every hole is different Tee boxes Fairways and Greens are all top notch The owner and the people who work for him treat you well. I’ve seen a tremendous amount of work going on on this course for sometime. This is a 4 and a half hour course with lots of play and big groups at times Be patient Enjoy

Great layout and great staff

Very challenging and picturesque course. The conditions were perfect. The staff was great as usual. There really aren’t “off course amenities” as not much goes on in the clubhouse. Since this is a links style course there is a food truck after hole 9.
