Rough greens

First time. Don’t know if rain has caused the greens to have so many bad spots or if they have been neglected. I would play here again.

Don't waste your money

Majority of the course is being repaired for the summer and the pace of play is atrocious because of it. Have to wait over 10 minutes on some teeboxes. Listed as a par 72 but is actually closer to a par 62 with all the repairs being done. How can you charge $35 for a round with these conditions is beyond me. Spend half the money and play at kings gate or the cove.

Terrible shape of fairways

The course used to be my favorite as I loved the challenging layout and well kept fairways and greens. When I played in May it seemed like they hadn't watered in months. The co stant bare lies in the fairway and shortened holed like hole 11 which played as a par 3 instead of a par 5 made the course like a cow pasture to play on. Totally disappointing. I will not go back in the near future

Not worth $20

Wouldn’t recommend to a first time golfer. Unenjoyable and hardly playable. They should close for the summer and work on it or close indefinitely.
