Needs care

The greens were very slow and very discolored and patchy making it very hard to read the greens and on top of it they were just too long and slow. Then there were a couple of holes that seemed the greens were cut a little better but still lots of dead patches and hard to read. Pace of play was awful got stuck behind two VERY slow groups and it seemed they had no rangers going around trying to check in and keep track of pace of play. I understand it is a public course but it is no fun for a golfer who would like to play at a decent pace it takes away from the enjoyment. Would not play this course again played in 2-3 times this season already no changes each time bad greens and very slow play.

Very friendly staff

Cart paths need repair and a better routes are needed to insure golfers safety ( ex: going to hole 4 passing 17) maybe more signage to indicate which direction to holes and a on-deck area so not to pull up on golfers that are on the tee box

Overpriced smelly mess

Well, it’s on a landfill and it sure smells like it. Its overpriced due to the way it smells, the amount of trash on the course, and the course layout is not the best. You would have to drive by other people teeing off/playing to get to multiple holes. We almost got hit by 3 golf balls from other people teeing off while we were on the 1st hole. The worst is the smell, I Won’t be playing here ever again mainly due to the smell.

Will definitely be back!

Course was in great shape for being so early in the season. It was really wet from rain the day before, but there was no standing water. Great value.

This Course definitely made me feel like i was dropped into those pictures we've all seen of those beautiful rolling Scotland courses. Not to mention i had a great game! I felt like the scenery matched the cold windy and rainy weather, so i didn't even mind it. Scored a 40 overall on the back 9 including a birdy on 17! Will definitely play again!
