It's OK Golf Course

The staff were wonderful, but the golf course was wet on some areas. Other than that it's a great golf course for the money I paid.

Staff exceeds expectations

It's March so green & lush would not be a fair description. I was a little disappointed that some (forward) tee areas had no grass at all. Temporary? There had been some recent aerating but that was not an issue. I'm used to better course quality at this price point. That said, I'm likely to play here again. The staff was friendly and helpful on every level.

Better courses in area

You get what you pay for. It was very slow and the fairways had just been punched, chucks of dirt everywhere and local high schoolers did not want you to play thru. Don’t go late afternoon.
