Bad Greens

Very scenic course, excellent views of the Cheat Lake. This course is a good challenge. Mostly narrow fairways, lots of trees. They did a good job picking up all the leaves. The greens are absolutely terrible though. All of them had a bad spot and several had bad spots all over. Had to put through large patches of dirt, missing turf, sand. Seemed like the weather had washed sections away.

Ahhh it’s not even like that. It’s December that’s why it’s four stars. Fairway grass was just a little tall but again I literally don’t care and I’m just glad I have the option to play here thru the winter weather dependent. Can’t wait for prime conditions this spring and summer!

Rough around the edges

Fairways ok. Tees need work. 1/2 traps need sand. Greens have issues. Dirt and rocks just off fairway on a few holes. Carts are good and include gps but not accurate pin positions. Fall play includes tons of leaves and you will lose balls even in fairway. Golf now, $25 on Saturday. Would never pay regular fee here.

Lake view

The course was not to bad for $35. Some tee boxes are beat up. Greens have a lot of ball marks but they do have a lot of slip and we’re dater than expected.
Tight course Would be nice to have the second 9 near the clubhouse or halfway house for drinks. The pro shop could off erf this up when first going out to load up the cooler.
GPS on the cart was unexpected for $35.
Looks like they are remodeling the hotel that is connected to the pro shop.

Failing on most levels

As a regular patron I have watched the gradual decline of this once elite course. there were attempts to improve the course conditions earlier, It appears that they have given up on getting the facility back to championship form. Further, course management is non existent and novice golfers tear up whats left of the course with un-repaired ball marks and divots.
The cart paths are atrocious and the greens are in horrible shape.
Io pains me to write this but it is no longer a must play course.

Course is in downfall

Over the last four years, this course has been on a downward spiral. the Fringe is taking over by weeks. Even though we have had record rainfall recently, the fairway had dead spots. The greens were bumpy due to so many untreated ball marks. Bunkers needed weed eated around and raked.

What once used to be a great course is no longer.

Ok for money

I have played here a lot over the last few years, I’d say the course is in good shape compared to years passed. Greens and fairways were good but the tee boxes and rough were in bad shape. Men’s restroom was out of order so had to use locker room, never going to not use that space now. Had an 8:10 tee time and front 9 was great. However got to turn and two groups jumped on to 10 and slowed my pace of play considerably. Ended up having to not play last 3 holes because I had someplace to be 1pm and was concerned I’d miss it. That is how slow these groups who went off the back instead of front. Someone needs to be watching this as many people said the same thing in reviews, I’ll be back but based on this last experience and what others are saying only at discounted rates. Even early tee times can’t get around course in reasonable time.
