Course review

Course fairways are considerably dirt hard pan dirt but the greens are suitable The water drop the or course maintenance has taken its toll. It is not worth the $50 greens fees.

Dry, dry and dryer with a bunch of slowness!

It’s been a great course in the past. It just seems the stopped watering it and over book it all will increasing their greens fees. Overall rating 1 out of 10.

Value for Price

The fairways are in horrible shape, but I’ve seen worse. The tee boxes and the greens are much better. It looks like they have spent most of their budget in making sure the greens are true.
The staff was friendly. The carts were decently maintained. All in all, it’s a decent course that has fallen on hard times.
