Course was in terrific shape.

Course was in terrific condition. Still a tough course for an old man, but there are several different tees you can use to adjust for your individual skill set. Overall a good experience.

Nice track - well maintained

Fairways and greens in pretty good shape for September. Staff are always friendly here in my experience. Pace was extremely fast on the front 9, but the course was really choked up by the time I got to the last few holes. Overall, an enjoyable day out.

Very Unprepared…Great Course Going Downhill

When I arrived, I was told the cart person would set up my cart and tell me which one to choose. No one was there. All the patrons were doing it themselves.

The driving range was closed.

There was no starter, so I didn’t know when to tee off, but managed to work with others based on our reservations.

At least seven holes on the front nine had the same tee box designation. There was no challenge or difference.

It was “cart path only” on a hot and sunny day. Made it hard to replace divots on the far side of the fairway.

This used to be one of the nicest and most enjoyable courses in the area. After yesterday, it’s way down in the list. Just a bad presentation.

Working on Tee Boxes

I was charged FULL prices to play from the forward tees on 75% of the holes. This was not mentioned in booking or by the staff. This pretty much ruins the layout of the course because a lot of the fun of this track is due to the tee box placement.

I understand that work needs to be done to maintain the course, but let customers know and at least offer some type of discount. I like this track (when all the tee boxes are open), but I don't want to waste my Sunday round playing a short course.

Bang for buck! And some more...

Rolled up today staff was unreal (free beers at check in) super friendly zero complaints. Tee time was 3:01 got off a little early, no one in front for a full 18. Had a great round overall, course layout was fun, it was a little wet but conditions were just fine. Got a great deal playing a little later in the day - will definitely play again. Cheers !

Decent

Beautiful layout, but didn’t get the full effect due to half the tee boxes being redone. Overall, not bad at all. Greens meh on speed, but it is the wet season right now.

First timer

The Pro Shop should notify golfers that 8 of the tee boxes are under construction! I would not have booked a tee time knowing that ahead of time. The course was in fair condition I can't recommend playing this course.

Great Outing!!!

I just moved down here from PA and was looking forward to playing a round. I was pleasantly surprised at what good shape the course was in considering the summer heat. I knew before we started our round that the tee boxes on several holes holes were being redone…NO BIGGY! The back nine was awesome. The staff was great. I look forward to coming back.
