This course is in pretty bad shape overall.

Greens and fairways are quite literally spliced in with different types of grass. I’m shocked that they’re asking for $100 per round. That’s pretty steep considering the poor condition of the greens, sand traps and fairways. Looks like they’re cutting back on quality. Also they’re Marshall isn’t really effective in keeping pace up towards the afternoon time.

Definitely won’t be returning

Payed $130 to play this course on Easter Sunday.

We arrived early hoping to get some drinks and food before our round of golf. The staff was extremely rude and explained we don’t have food unless you have a reservation. We had a reservation for our T time but needed a restaurant reservation in order to eat.
I find it extremely frustrating that the golf course wouldn’t accommodate the people also Golfing.. not just the people there for Easter brunch.

The golf carts are low quality, range finder isn’t even close to accurate.

We were getting hit on all day, pace was extremely slow. We had a 4 sum in front of us that was playing 2-3 balls each. Which is extremely rude and inconsiderate. I called the office many times to get a Marshall there to speed them up. Nobody came, nobody answered the phone or called me back.

A young man who works at the golf course drove passed us and I asked him to ask the group ahead to speed up and he said he would.
He drove right passed the group and nothing changed for the remaining of the day.

I will not be coming back

Great Fred Couples course.

Good track. Lots of bunkers but in the right places. The new sand is fluffy and a big improvement. Wish the 19th hole would reopen!

Not a $130 course

No ball washes anywhere. No beverage cart anywhere. C’mon, we are post pandemic. A player showed up late so instead of putting him with a pair or threesome, the starter let him go alone. Pond by 5th hole seems to be worked on for years, not weeks. Same issue for some traps. Seems like a never ending story getting the course looking and playing well. YEARS ago this was considered a pristine course. Now, far from it.
