Fairway MUD

This course should be closed for areating. It was a nightmare on the fairways with big “globs” of mud. What a disappointment!

The Staff

This place sucked !! The two women starters at the counter are rude as stated by previous comments , don’t forget that dust mask when you walk in , don’t bring yourself and two friends inside one will have to stay outside, your not allowed to ask questions thru the plexiglass over the counter , leave you cash at home they don’t accept American money for services and goods , if your so scared and rude don’t work there we can pay from the outside window that’s there instead listening to you barking orders , Shut your pie hole !! golf carts rips in the seats bald tires score cards and pencil’s are not on the carts , you’ll have to walk back in with your dust mask to get those , you can put those outside too, Bring you own water and a pee bottle , restrooms are closed on the course , not sure what the women would do , not one ball washer on the tee boxes but they know all about that …. Staff and Course not up to par but start with the Staff or just close it down …

Used cart

Wouldn't honor the 18 Hole w Cart Booking

Booked a $19 hot deal. Get to the course and they aren't willing to honor it. Say its only a 9 hole course and they can't fit in to play again. Why is this deal advertised if not honored? Drove 3 hours round trip for a 9 hole! Spoke too 3 people who worked there and none were helpful.

LIL Rec

One of the Best Executive Courses in the area. The staff is usually friendly however, today the lady at check-in was constantly complaining on why do we get up so ery to play golf. She was the talk at the 1st tee when everyone was there. Other than that a Great Time was had.
