Friendly staff and nice pace of play

I called ahead to inquire about a later tee time since I was running late. The young lady in the pro shop was nice enough to squeeze me in with no problem.

Poor Management

So many things to list wrong with the course but they all point to bad management. For starters, they need to fix the driving range fences to prevent range balls from littering Hole 1 and Hole 2. Secondly, the golf carts are by far the worse condition. And finally, they are on the hunt for outside alcohol, it’s almost like going through airport security where they check your golf bag and any bags you bring in. My advise is, if you want to make money on alcohol, why don’t you make it more available and focus on sales instead of contraband. With that money, management can get some maintenance done and actually turn a profit. I won’t be surprised if this golf course goes out of business with their current practices.

Let's just hit it any where?!

When I say trash I mean trash. Other golfers stealing balls..it a duuuck!!! session..the wholes are poorly marked. Girls haveing photo shoots on the 4th whole. What's a green? Cuz they had zero, it was more of a weed patch. You had to hold your bag an drive a cart with horrible steering....just trash..price should be $2.

You get what you pay for

Cool little course to practice with your irons. Greens were horrific but overall an ok course. The lady at the check in desk was a bit rude and lied about not having anymore tee times. She stated they were fully booked after I told her I saw tee times online. Still, she claimed they did not have anymore tee times or carts, lies. There were at least 7 carts ready to go and no one teed off after us until we were on our way to the 7th hole

Sad

I could not believe how terrible this course was. Only booked because it was the only early morning tee time available. Not even a good course for practice as your hitting out of the dirt most of the time. Will never come back to this place again

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.
