Decent Course

Good value for money, course in great condition. Greens could be slightly better, a bit heavily sanded and bumpy at times.

Great course, great layout.

Enjoyed this today, friendly guy in the pro shop, nice practice green and driving range too warm up if you’re that way inclined.
Nice layout with bunkers and water hazards in great locations to make you second guess some shots. Overall great condition and well maintained will be back again

Poor course condition

The course was very soggy, the small rough was very rough and the fairways were like the rough. Tough to find the balls even if hit on the fairway. The greens were full of divets, the air compressor was not working so unable to blow off excess grass off shoes and golf bag. Overall very disappointing visit and would be looking elsewhere for another game.
