Disappointed

Course should have been closed and rendered unplayable. Too wet!☺️. I wouldn’t have driven 60 miles to play. . Maybe I should have asked. Hmmmm. I like the course , but only if it wasn’t saturated. Wet is wet I guess. However if you would like to OFFER ME A FREE ROUND , I’d take it. Lol. Or half off or a $10 voucher I’d still take it. Lol. But only on a golf now hot deal with my monthly discount, and a senior discount with a HANDICAP FLAG!!!!!!!!

Great course

Definitely the best as a public course. The layout is nice and the course is always taken care of. The staff is very nice and puts a lot of work into making the course better. It just gets over booked and pace of play can come to a halt very quickly

Course was in decent shape, other than being really hard in the fairways, which is usual for around this area. Needs to be watered on a more regular basis is my guess. Pace of play was pretty slow but it was one of the few perfect weather days we get here so it was understandable having so many ppl on the course.
Only way to better that is manage tee times a little further apart, but it really wasn’t bad because I wasn’t in a hurry anyways.

Worth the Hot Deal

I was stuck in Baton Rouge for a day and just wanted to find a place quick to play around. I found this course on a HD so I jumped on it. Overall it was fine. The greens were slow and very inconsistent. The ground all over the course was rock-hard and made the short game a nightmare! The good news was I got a ton of roll-out off the tee. The rough was like concrete with fur. The grad was thick and dry and the surface was so hard the the club bounced on every shot. The fairways were not much better very hard and difficult to achieve good contact. Again, for a HD it was well worth it and I played with a couple guys who were regulars and they said it was not usually like this. So, all things considered I would come back again. Some very well placed hazards and some really pretty holes made it a challenging but enjoyable round. The final hole I got suckered in to trying to take it over the water… very tough and I ticking shot… I lost more than one ball on 18!
