7th round of 2023 in January

Glad that they are of course that stays open almost year-round. It's my 7th round here in January of 2023. Of course was a little wet but was still in very good condition.

Good condition

The course was in good condition considering it's January 16th. The fair was in good shape and the greens were pretty good also. Was a challenge hitting the ball into the greens with them being a little bit Frozen

Good Day

Was glad to play the last round of the year (2022). Course was a little wet, but that's from the rain we were having. Course was in good shape and greens were very good

Gradual decline

Been playing this course for a decade
Never been this bad.

Rangers have gotten lazy. Pace of play is just horrible. Took us 3 hrs to finish 9. We had to give up after 12.

Any and all now come and play here without sense or discipline. So called covid golfers and highschoolers galore.

Things need to change

Fun Time

Had a great day on the course yesterday! Pace of play was great except for a slight backup on the final 4 holes. Looking forward to to playing here again and will be back soon.

Twilight = Slow, Slow, Slow

Don't expect to get in 18 holes during twilight... No rangers or starters on the course. Course is nice but pace is slow.

Everything’s great, EXCEPT

Love playing here, been here a few times this summer. Everytime the staff is friendly in the pro shop and I love the course layout. However, the starter is always rude and unpleasant and truthfully I’m not sure why he’s still there. He’s always annoyed that he has to do his job. Other than that great course.
