Grounds under repair

There are a lot of holes that they're working on. Some greens some fairways some tea boxes were being torn up and new sod being laid. A few greens add some bald spots on but overall it was an enjoyable place to play. The fairways are nice and love lush not love. You can enjoy your round if you look past the few things that are under repair.

Ok for $20.00/9 holes

Played the C course I had no expectations for the course as I only paid 14.00 for a 9 hole round. With that being said I got what I paid for, course has a lot of criss cross with path directions to holes not clear. Hole #2 green was almost non existent a few tee boxes had more sand than grass very common to see other golfers picking up any ball they desired happened to me twice once in my fairway and once in another. Greens overall a 5/10 - fairways 6/10- t boxes 6-10

Pitiful and rude

Course was barely playable, first nine played in an hour and a half, made turn our next nine on course B had been stacked. We were directed by starter who should be fired immediately to course A right behind a five some, so rather than play a 3hour nine we left. Feel like my money was stolen. Never again. Please fire that rude worth less starter.

Not good

Course conditions have gone downhill. Greens are awful. Driving range is dirt. Such a shame that this gem can’t be kept in consistently decent shape while others not in their league like Sanlan outshine them.

Gone down hill

Not in good shape right now. Sand craters on greens, bunkers not raked and quite a few full of water. Remember it being better. Worst greens in the county. Love the layout, hope it gets better.

There is no way this course went from good condition to what I played in a month ,this guy is either blind or works there.

Nice course

Tee boxes and Fairways in excellent shape, Greens could use a little attention. We played C&B courses so can't say anything about A course. This golf club has three 9 hole courses.
Staff was very friendly and helpful as this was our first time playing here.
Our group will definitely be returning.

The greens are rough again. Two weeks ago they weren’t that bad… but lots of dry dead spots. Really hard to putt like that.

The course is in my opinion a wonderful price for the quality. It's always in good condition. My only disappointment and it's this way nearly every time retime are the staff members. Not. Not all of them but there are a few grouchy old men that just seemed to hate the hate being there. There's no more aggravating thing than telling someone good morning and saying hello for them to not even acknowledge you.
