Vacation golf

This course was a good value for the price. A few greens were under repair. The speed of pace was great, 4 hours for the round. Only needed 1 day in advance to get a tee tome at 11am on Saturday.

When you have greens under repair, you do not charge $40 for a round.

My whole grouping was somewhat disappointed that the temporary greens at 4, 9 and 18, were in such poor shape and totally altered the holes on which they were placed. I understand the need for repair as there are many holes on this course where the greens, in their current shape, are somewhat unpayable as it is, but three holes where there is a temp green really suffer.
Don't get me wrong, when this course is fixed, it will be a wonderful course to play again, but for now, no go for me and my friends.

DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME

This by far the worst course I have ever played. This is the first time back in about a year. The course conditions have gone downhill so bad. Every green has giant bald spot, what they call temp greens are a joke. I have better grass in my yard then they do on the fairways. All I can say is pay a little more and drive a little less to have a much better golf outing. Oh and let’s not forget the course has fire ants everywhere.

Worse Than Ever

Do you guys have a Greens-keeper? Who is in charge of the greens? The temp greens are awful. I try to be positive but you had your chance for years. Everything is ok, but those temp greens show no effort. You just cut the grass in the fairway. So bad our group of 8 will not play there anymore until you improve. You can't tell me it was the cold or dry conditions. Someone should know how to take care of greens. Go see Crystal Falls and see their greens. Awful, just awful. My recommendation: Do not play here you will be disappointed. All the other course are better.

Nice atmosphere, terrible greens

The surrounding neighborhood and lake views are beautiful. The layout of the course is very nice. The fairways are in average shape and the greens are in horrible shape. It is worth playing if you can get a deal on it, otherwise I would not bust the bank to play here.

Course under construction

The greens are the worst I have ever seen on any course. The greens are mostly dirt or sand (very limited grass) Some of the greens were temporarily moved while under construction. The temporary greens were basically mowed areas on the fairways. I would reconsider playing this course again in the future once work on the course is completed. For Now there are 3 greens that are completely unplayable.

Terrible conditions, worst I've seen this place they blame the freeze on the conditions that was months ago. All other courses I've played the freeze didn't have any significant effects. This place is terrible, used to be a great course but has gone way downhill in the last couple years

Nice local course. Currently 3 greens are temporary greens no better than dirt. Other greens would be good but they are being aerated so not in best shape.
Would definitely play this course again after greens are established.

Ehh

Tee boxes were rough. Fairways were 2-3 inches thick. To say they needed to mow is an understatement. A handful of the greens had sand spots & another handful of the greens had muddy washouts. Lastly - not only was their no drinking water on the course, we did not see a beverage cart the entire time we played. This was a Saturday.

Overall, the price was very reasonable so we weren’t expecting Augusta. The views were great and the course has tons of potential if shown a little more love. We did pay slightly more for Falconhead the following day and it was more than worth it!

Terrible fairways

The course conditions were terrible. The fairway grass was the lengths of what normal rough or out of bounds would be. We had to search to find our balls that were hit in the fairways. Hopefully this isn’t normal for the course. The greens were very patchy and had mounds of dirt on them.

Horrible condition

Course took a beating from cold winter. Basically lost every green. Seems they are starting to grow back, but average of about 60% coverage on greens, rest is sandy and all is bumpy. Fairways, well hesitate to call them that, let's just call it the area of the rough they cut shorter. Patchy and sparse, some areas grown in, but non of it actually looks like a real fairway. Then we add in apparently have no grounds crews, since debris from a storm a week ago still littered the course. Tree stumps and branches just sitting in middle of fairways. Used to like this course, but more like a cow pasture these days.
