Poor signage and lots of dogs

Course runs through old worn down neighborhood. Many barking dogs along the course close to golfers. Navigating your way between holes is at times difficult given lack of signage and priority given to local traffic.

Another enjoyable day

The golf course is in really nice condition. The fairways and the greens are in a really nice shape. The bunkers need to be dried out and re-sanded. Other than that it was a very nice day.

Course good - not great

Greens good shape but slooow. Tee boxes, fairways and bunkers were good to ok - bunkers could use more sand. Non-playing areas around course not maintained so not the prettiest golf course. Probably good layout for the money if you get a Hot Deal.

Above average

The best part of our round was the welcome we received from the support staff. Carts were delivered to the parking lot and the layout of the course was well explained to us. The course has wide friendly fairways and consistent greens. The only complaint was a lack of a beverage cart and the restaurant was not open at the turn.
