Interesting day

This is a nice course but not for the inexperienced golf or for the golfer that doesn’t hit the ball straight. It is a tight unforgiving course. You also need a range finder as the course is unmarked so if you are not good with yardage you’ll be short or long all day. Course was in very good condition and for me an enjoyable day but not so much for the guys I played with. At the turn, another dozen golf balls were bought. Cart girl was friendly but we didn’t see her until the 14th hole. I’d play it again just to see if I learned anything from today’s round.

Excellent course for the price.

I was able to get a Hot Deal rate for this course. The course was in excellent condition with a few bare spots on the edges of the fairways. Green were firm but receptive. They had just sanded the greens but it did not affect the roll of the ball. The club house was being remodeled but in excellent condition. Stocking of merchandise was a little sparse in the golf shop, especially golf balls, but everything was available if needed. The course is laid out well, making it playable for all level of golfers. I will definitely play this course again.

Ranger interrupted our lunch to pick up pace of play instead of finding other teams that could play ahead. Couldn’t even finish my hot dog.

Great Round

We ended up with the first tee time of the morning and zipped around the course in 3 1/2 hours for 2 people. Greens were in great shape and though the course was wet from a lot of rain the night before it had drained very well. Fun layout and priced well in comparison to other courses in the area.

Ok

Just feel it has gone downhill since we played a few years ago. Our cart was filthy. Under roof there was mold! The price to rent the cart was outrageous. Course itself had a nice feel. Fairways not up to par. Basically just seemed run down.

Nice but not memorable

Everything is good, but nothing great about the experience and course. The layout is solid, but you'll be challenged to remember any hole. Conditions were very good. I wish I could have another food option ready at the turn besides a hot dog and I wish I could avoid the man that wipes down my club in 30 seconds for 2$.
