The Worst Greens Ever

The price was good, and didn't even mind the long grass on the fairways, but the greens were the worst I have ever played on. Loaded with weeds making putting impossible to 2 putt. We just picked up our balls if we didn't make the put in 2 putts. At least our scores were lower. LOL!

This course sucks

Fairways are terrible. Greens are terrible. Staff is terrible. Worst course I've ever played. Was a fun track until the current proprietors ruined it
They don't even mow what they call Fairways! What a dump.

You get what you pay for…

Easy to slam this place as unfit for play BUT you have to remember it is $10-15 with cart for 18 holes.

Think of it this way….the conditions of this course force you to play better. The fairways are high grass; the “rough” is either a jungle, pond, or ditch; and the greens are like putting across a vehicle test track testing the suspension of a new car.

All that said…its quite, the staff is pleasant, and based on conditions it is almost always open for play.

Fairways and Greens were horrible

Played this course a lot in the late 90's and early 2000's and it was a really decent course for someone learning the game. After the base shutdown and the city took over it has gone downhill in a hurry. It is now geared toward the disc golf game and the fairways and greens are in horrible shape. You can clearly see that they are making the disc golf more important. Absolutely not worth the 32 dollars we paid for it. Probably will not play there again. It's sad because I really enjoyed playing there back then.

Not Happy

I played this course 12 years ago and it was bad. I hoped that it was better now but it was worse.! The carts were filthy with the seats torn open with the foam sticking out, They were very old and worn out. I barley was able to finish the round as it ws dying. The course was like a cow pasture with hay growing a foot high and fairways deep with rough. The greens were litered with worm digging of dirt. It was bad , bad bad! Do not reccomend this course for members to play.

you get what you pay for

nothing fancy, poor tee boxes and greens are like carpets. If you are looking to just go hit balls this is fine, but dont expect tour quality anything. Carts are old and no ball washing or water bottle filler/fountains on the course.

Also no need to use golf now, they have the same rate at the course so i paid a reservation fee for no reason.

Cecil Field Golf

This was the worst golf course I’ve played this year & I’ve played a lot of courses! Fairways had little grass & the greens were horrible! Weeds were growing on the greens & the greens appeared to nut being cut for days! Pace was good because no one was playing golf! Should not be on Golfnow!

A bit more TLC.

For the cost it's a good place to come play. The Tee Box needs to be mowed a little lower, and the greens a little more care.
