Tough sledding

The greens were exceptionally slow and bumpy. They played like temporary greens. There were dead grass areas on virtually every fairway. It appeared as if the fairway mowers had leaked oil or gas that killed the grass.

blindsided by aerification

booked my tee time on golf now, found out on arrival that front 9 greens had just been aerated, back 9 was closed. most greens on front were nearly unputtable. fairways and tee boxes were much improved with all the rain. i know maintenance on greens has to be done, i would just like a heads up before i book a tee time. usually golf now has some kind of alert when this is going on, but no warning this time. play got really slow playing front 9 for second time with foursomes teeing off for their first 9. would have chosen another venue if i knew the facts.

The Starter is a bully!! Find another job.

Very poor experience, the greens were recently punched and were punched again today - ugh. Oh, the issue(s) with the starter - next time I'm calling the Sheriff. Bullies at his age - hmmm?

Course had some excellent greens. Fairways could use a little work, but definitely above average for the amount of rain we’ve received recently.

Group of five

There was a group,of five that were allowed to play as a group that slowed down everybody behind them. Apparently there is no marshall to control this situation.

Great course

This course is in great condition, definitely well cared for. It is close to our house and we go there often. Staff is always friendly. We’ve used the putting greens, driving range and chipping hill and it’s always easy and
fun to practice.
