Took 6 hours to finish 18 holes

I would never come back to this course again.
They scheduled tee times every 5 to 10 minutes and sometimes tee times overlaps. I complained about tight tee times then staff told me to blame golfnow.
They are not responsible for delays.

What else is there to say? Oh wait, there’s a big sign requiring guests to wear masks in the clubhouse, but NONE of the employees were actually wearing a mask.

Slow Play

Play was extremely slow, better management needed on this day. Have played the coarse before without no problems. With that said I will return.

Course Needs Work

1. Put more sand in the bunkers. Too many hard packed areas where you might as well consider taking relief instead of grounding your club into the 1/8 inch sand and blading the shot over the green.

2. Fertilizer, and please toss some seeds into the fairways and rough. Green side rough was terrible in places where it was patches of grass with dirt exposed. Please fix this course so it will be the greatness that it’s advertised to be.
