Cold weather
Walked

Got out on a cold (33*) Saturday morning at dawn (first tee time). The course was perfect for our ability (just out to have fun and get better), and as the cold kept people away, it felt we had the entire course to ourselves.

You won't find the most challenging holes with shots over hazards or fairways that require drivers off the deck, but the course is well taken care of and still requires finesse. Will definitely keep on the list of winter courses in the area.

Kissena Lovely Fall Stroll

Play was slow but the course looked beautiful with fall foliage in full force. Even though this is more of an executive course it is still a challenge to land the ball on these small greens. Delightful course

Expensive, short & poor pace of play

We had the first tee on Sunday 7:05am and by the time we got to #10, there was 5 groups in front of us, even though they are not supposed to let people start through the back nine after 8am. There was a even a walking 5-some warming up to tee off! Suffice to say, we ended up abandoning our round because it would have taken us 3 hours just to complete the very short back nine. Just not worth it. Course is in average conditions and for the price they charge you would expect something much better.
