Under Renovation

All bunkers are closed and 5 tee boxes were. being sodded so tees were on the fairways. I wish we knew this before booking. This is one of my favorite courses in the area because of the layout. Overall condition is poor because of change of ownership

Really….

Why do you still have this course listed on GolfNow??) It’s currently under total renovation and they are charging full price. Sure 2023 will benefit but now it’s a total rebuild with new unplayable bunkers and sod everywhere not to mention some holes have no tee boxes….
Do not play this course, I did yesterday for a smooth 105.00….

New Owners Sending $$$

The greens are new and improved grass and like a carpet. Lots of work in progress throughout the course on and around the bunkers.

Course is under construction!!!

Had we known beforehand we would not have played! We. We’re told bunkers were unplayable we we checked but there was a lot of newly sodded areas, unusable tee boxes, heavy equipment on the course. All that should have been stated before we paid!!! Very disappointing because we had played the course before and really liked it.

Well worth the experience

Great lay out. Tough greens. Sand traps under construction. Fairways generous fairway grass pretty tight
I shot 100, which is my usual game. I would play again.

Repairs

The sand traps were undergoing extensive repairs with workmen and equipment in areas that changed how you could play the course. I understand that repairs need to be done, but this should have been clear at the start and I would expect a reduced fee. I would not recommend playing there until the repairs are finished.

Terrible conditions

Two year ago I played this course and it was great. Now is condition is terrible. Greens in horrible shape. All traps were under repair yet they charged full price. Too bad. It can be a very nice course.

Course under repair

All the sand traps are being completely redone and the grass around them. I liked the course layout and it is close to my home in Nokomis. I can see that they are spending a lot of money on the traps and will only make the course better. I will play it again once the traps are finished, I only wish that I would have been told that all the traps and surrounding areas around them were under repair. I would have then played somewhere else until the course was finished.

Under construction

The course is a nice layout but all the bunkers are being redone and we could not play out of them. I’d go back in a few years once rebuilt.

Course under construction

I played this course and was not told that it was being renovated. I was charged full price for this course, and all the sandbunkers on the front nine were unplayable. The starter is the one that actually told us that if your ball lands in a bunker to lift it out and because there's no sand in the bunkers. At one point, I had to hit my ball around a backhoe that was parked. The course is under new management but clearly has not been taken care of. The fairways are horrible and haven't seen water or grass for a long time. If I were management, I would be embarrassed to charge people that amount of money when the course is in horrible condition.
