Won’t be back

Course is basically miniature. Wasn’t aware of that up front. In the morning everything was soaking wet, greens included. Mud everywhere. Cart was falling apart. Most holes aren’t clearly marked, so finding the tee boxes wasn’t fun. Greens were decent. Most holes under 200 yards. Driving range was acceptable. The bar/restaurant on site was the highlight of the course

Needs alot of work

I only come here for the practice areas and the bar. The course itself has really gone downhill (fairways are all dead grass, dried up algae covered lake). Would be a great local 9 hole if they put more money into it.

Good for a quick round

Decent course to play a quick 9 holes. Greens could use some work. Carts are not in good shape, ours barely made it back. Cool bar area for a couple beers after

It is what it is.

A ton of drive range balls on the actual course. Fairways intermingled which caused danger and confusion. Not kept up. Good for the budget conscience.

value course, shady rip off staff

Booked with a cart but apparently “they didn’t have any ready” checked in an checked about 20 minutes before my tee time and at my tee time.. but no carts? So being understanding and friendly I said it’s okay I’ll walk but as soon as I turn the corner to go to the first hole there’s like 3 empty parked carts idk if they were even functional but just thought that’s wack but I’ll just keep walking the course, then actually get the first hole to see the couple in front with a cart and the 4 some that pulled up shortly behind me with 2 carts... liars, period. had a nice day/game once I was on the course but that’s because I made it one... it’s a cool practice course but the staff is shady and disrespectful for that cart business when I booked and payed for something I didn’t get..

Van buren golf center

The course conditions leave a lot to me desire. Although they do describe this course is a beginners course. Other than that it is great.

Never again!

Course is bad shape greens are horrendous . My buddies and I played night golf, on numerous holes the lights weren’t working the layout was confusing range balls were rolling up to us as we were playing as there is no net between the range and course tee boxes were terrible . The guy in the pro shop not sure if he’s the owner he was bouncing back and forth from the brookes bar to the cash register, on arrival we were greeted rudely with “ If your here for the range we have no balls for the next 30-45 minutes “ as associates are lounging around smoking cigarettes . Cart died and was falling apart on hole 6 . I think 2$ with a cart is a more fair reasonable price if you want good night golf and friendly staff Arcadia par 3 is far superior to this dump. On the plus side range isn’t to bad if your lucky to get a bucket of balls .

Only for practice

The course is extremely poorly kept. Terrible tee boxes, even worse greens. Over the years it just continues to get worse. It’s unfortunate.

Extremely rude staff

I’ve been here quite a few times. And usually come whenever just trying to get a quick couple holes in without worrying about finding a tee time. Sometimes when I come there is friendly staff. But every single time I encounter this man today he is always rude always in a bad mood and talks in an extremely rude condescending tone. I booked a tee time for two and it was supposed to be for carts but somehow was booked for walking I asked if I could add a cart and he said no. I asked if I’m able to book for two more people at my tee time and they can have a cart how come I can’t add a cart to my booking. He started to tell me he has the right to refuse service. I interrupted him and said I was asking just to add a cart. So why are you speaking to me so rudely and in this condescending tone. The guy said his managers name is Jim and I will be reaching out to him.

You get what you pay for!

The course is poorly kept. Trash all over, tee boxes aren't kept, and carts are not clean.
