Great Value!

I really enjoyed my first time at this course. It was a cloudy day and it rained briefly halfway through, but I still had a really fun time. The course was decent and I liked the layout. It wasn't too easy or too difficult. Best of all, I didn't lose any balls! People were very nice and courteous. For the price I paid, there's definitely nothing to complain about! I would definitely come back!

Tee boxes and sand traps

Level out the tee boxes (you know the holes) and add sand to the traps. This course is top notch nevertheless.

A little rough around the edges

The greens were in great shape, hard and fast. The rest of the course is sketchy, the fairways not so nice. Maybe it hadn't been mowed in days...but why? Had many lies in the middle of the fairway that were nestled in tall grass clumps!

Wednesday golf

Is a good time to play the course, low number of golfers so there was no pressure on the speed of play .
Course is in good shape.

Gopher Holes

Made a hole in one on the 16th fairway. Is there a local rule for that?

Not fun

Some of the greens are very bumpy. No true roll. There is limited cart path so you must ride on course which is often very bumpy making for an uncomfortable ride. Fairways are not well maintained. Carts have no roof, open to sun. Checkin was easy and outdoors. Friendly attendant.
