BEST COURSE FOR $

There’s plenty of courses around here that cost more for the course to be garbage. This course is the best dispute 2 tee boxes that seem to never be repaired and one green that stays burnt this course still played very true! Greens are in great shape great speeds. They do not have a marshal out unless you complain so if you have morons slowing down pace of play just call front desk. You will not be disappointed coming here staff are very very friendly.

Garbage!!!

Seriously and i give honest and fair reviews.

I paid $49 after tax and the lady at the counter (who was super nice) said it was such a deal. I couldn’t DISAGREE more!!! This place has a serious irrigation issue. The fairways are muddy in the middle of the day, yet it is kissing grass?!?!?! How can a course with so much water leaking have such dead greens. They were dry, dead, and bumpy. Many patches on the course dead and yet others were covered with water and mud.

This course closes in the summer and you would think a month after reopening it would have lush GREEN fairways and putting greens. I’m a reasonable person and if this is the best conditions you can get then ok I understand, but charge half of what you are charging. Now I know better and will take my money to a course near by like Dave white which has excellent fairways and greens AND is cheaper

Challenging course

The course is in great shape. The greens were surprisingly fast for this time of year. The course is well maintained. There are many challenges on the course with tree lined fairways, sand traps and water on a few holes. We will play the course again and recommend it highly.

Friends Golf Outing

I always enjoy playing out here as it different than the course you find in the area. It is quirky but that is what keeps us coming back. Coming out of over-seed the course still needs time to fill in. Tough to keep carts off the course when the paths are limited between the tee box and the green. But with a little water and daytime heat this course will be really nice in a couple weeks. There were 8 of us with the females teeing off in front of the gents. Pace of play was excellent. Staff were great as well, and the 19th hole was a nice place to end our round. We will be back and we look forward to it.

Conditions could be better

Conditions were just average, tee boxes were a mess, some of the greens were pretty questionable. OK value for the money.

San Frisch Grande

Could be a nice course if the condition was better. Must be a few thousand gopher holes on the course. Found three with my drives. Luckily found my ball, but not what I would expect for the price. Layout is very nice and enjoyable but not one tee box was level and lots of bare spots on the middle of fairways. Greens need lots of work to be putt able. The one bright spot was the bunkers had nice sand but lots of grass growing in them. Was very excited to play ther only to be disappointed with the condition. I understand they are closed during the summer so might be nicer later in the season but then the price goes up. Too many better course to play for the same money. .
