A little disappointed

$55 to play in late November seemed high but it’s usually a good course. The course was cart path only even though there were only a couple holes that were wet. We didn’t have the option to walk at a lower rate. The greens and fairways had recently been aerated but there was no communication about it. All in all, $55 was way too high for those course conditions

No mention when booking of recent aeration of greens. Sand traps, if you want to call them that, were not maintained at all.

This course is always fun to play. Can be slow if you're stuck behind a senior league,though! On this particular day it was wide open,played in 3 hours.
