Nice course for the money

Had punched greens a couple weeks ago so not sure how greens roll. Tees and fairways were pretty good. Most holes are straight away. Need to hit it straight as there is a good share of trouble off the tees

Nice Shape

The course was in nice shape. Rain does wonders and keeps green grass. The course was mowed and looked nice. It was hot out and NO drinking water on the course, Not Good. I think they are being Lazy.

Running a Tournament till 2PM

The course was running a tournament with player playing their round up till 2PM. No mention of this on golfnow, had a tee time at 11:37am went out at 11:50am behind a tournament 4 some. The 9 took over 2 hours to complete with long wait times. The back was quick at the tournament was done. Just wish that expectations should have been set.

Otherwise, I love the course and the staff. The course is good condition with all the rains lately.

Excellent for the price

Played 18 for under 25 dollars. For that cost this is an excellent value. Played after a week of tremendous amount of rain but course drained nicely and wasn’t soupy. Was greenest course we played in the area on vacation.
