Interesting Track Beautiful Layout

I love this course. It's playing a little off-season at the moment, but when I played back in the spring it was beautiful. So I'm not too worried about these winter conditions setting in after a long season and lots of play. Most of the tee boxes are in good shape. The course weaves thru a neighborhood, but the houses are never really in the way or too close (shout-out to all my fellow slicers!). Some good water holes and elevation changes, but nothing insane. Seems like a pretty chill vibe around the clubhouse and range. Not crowded at all.

Perfect Greens

It's too bad that that the otherwise perfect greens were marred by the group in front of us. They made spike marks all around each hole by dragging their cleats. This was not just a bad step here or there, it was atrocious . We spent more time trying to repair the damage than reading our putts.

One guy, believed to be a member, was driving all over the green complexes. This was the most egregious display I have even seen in 45 years of playing. He was driving the cart between the greenside bunkers and the green itself (on the fringes). He was even on the backside of number 8 green In order to even get there, you have to hop a curb, drive up a 30 degree incline, wedge the cart between the bunkers and the green, and drive around the entire green, on the fringes.. I guess he knew no marshals were on the course that day. If they anyone in power caught this guy, he would have been thrown off immediately. It was total disrespect of the Golf maintenance crew and the Golf course itself. By the way, he did not look disabled in any way, just downright lazy

Be ready to have a 5 hour round

It’s my second time here. First round took 4.5 hours, I left after 11 holes on the second round. There’s singles and doubles all over the course making the pace of play extremely slow. I was a single and willing to get paired up but they recommended Inter off solo off 10, I was still waiting on singles and doubles after 4 holes. They need a starter and staff that knows how to keep pace of play in check. I won’t be coming back which is a shame because the course is in good shape. Some of the greens need a bit of love but the tee boxes and fairways are in great shape. Bunkers need some sand and better drainage.

Sand on the greens

This course layout is really nice and has some beautiful holes with outlooks on the water,

The staff was very friendly and their driving range balls are not too expensive.

Yet almost all the greens are airified, and have dimple holes everywhere, not mention the multiple greens are covered in sand, so much that the grass barley comes out of it. Overall nice course, not to challenging but a good time.

Fun course

It’s been a few years since I’ve played here. Was glad to get a tee time, hard to reach the pro shop by phone and they have limited tee times through golf now. How ever it was a fun round, not many people out on an early Friday morning. Thought it was unusual, but was a pleasant round with good pace. Not sure if that’s typical of this course or not. Course conditions were great, a few bunkers were firm but not bad compared to many other courses in the area. Not much signage around the course on how to get to the next hole, but not very difficult to get around either. Definitely want to play again.

Great course

This course is great. Some of the paths are really rough but the course itself is great. It is a long course and you have to drive a bit from hole to hole but overall great. The carts are well taken care of and seem like they are in good shape.

a perfect morning round

Teed off early, the course was in great shape, the greens were putting true and fast. Finished my round in 2:10. What more could a golfer ask for?
