Good course

It was a good course. However, the pace of play was very slow. There was a marshal out there and he really didn’t do anything.

Single

Unfortunately was grouped with 3 good drinkers but poor golfers. The disadvantage of being a single. Course was good but group not so much.

Great condition, super nice greens.

Goos course. Stay in the fairways though cause the roughs are very dry and not alot if vegetation. Greens were very good. Speedy and true. Some 5 some on the course slowed things up a bit.
Would play again

Could have been better!

Fairways, tees and greens in good shape. Course was challenging for this old guy. They wouldn't let me have my own cart, but assured me when I asked that everything was safe. I am not sure how they know that. So I rode around on a cart with a stranger. Certainly not social distancing. I guess I should have gone home if I was really concerned but the round was prepaid and I didn't expect that uncaring response at a city golf course. For shame. So as enjoyable as the golf was, I'll likely not go back.
