Should be a litte cheaper

50 dollars for a course seems to be alot when all the grass is still dead and there is still snow in some spots, but the course is just challenging enough to make worth playing if you are looking to practice.

Way overbooked and overpriced

Paid $60 for 18. Didn’t even get to play all 18 because there were approximately 3 different groups of golfers per hole. Way too crowded and way to expensive. Can’t say I’ll be returning here anytime soon. I think there was two high school golf practices also happening that day.

Great value

I am visiting Twin Cities and found this course a really great place to grab a quick round. Got out ahead of what looked like a lot of regulars and whizzed around in 2 hours. The course is very open so even errant shots were easy to find and hit back on course.

Bang for your buck

This is a top notch course for the price! Love the options on tee times and the fact that they have 36 holes. Greens are in phenomenal shape and course is pretty wide open. Enjoyable course to play and has its challenges to keep you on your toes.

Nice layouts. Weekend players incosiderate

Have played both courses multiple times with great recommendations on weekdays. Weekends are iffy. Yesterday was a 5 1/2 hour debacle with foursomes getting into arguments over pace of play, failure to treat the course properly and overall respect to the game itself.

Had to endure following a drunken foursome at 8:30am that fell two holes behind after the fourth hole. Drive their carts across two greens, failure to replace monster divots in the fairway and green.

Bad staff friendliness

I was treated like a bad person because I was a single golfer. The ranger was very rude when I wanted to play ahead of a foursome

No carts, lack of control for your scheduled tee time?! What a joke…

I set up a tee time 3 days prior to golfing, I arrived with my party of 3 40min before our scheduled tee time, the check in process was relatively quick but nothing was stated about a possible cart shortage by the staff inside and no directions were given as to where hole number one was in relation to the club house or where to obtain a cart. We bought some drinks for the cart and walked out with 25min left until our tee time, we walked up to the cart shack and stood in line for a half hour with several other groups that were all waiting for golf carts… the whole time we stood there not a single word was said from any of the 4 staff members that were working outside at or near the cart shack.. I have never witnessed this lack of respect before in my life at golf course…. A club running out of carts and putting everyone’s scheduled tee time behind right off the bat is bad enough but pair that with a rude staff that can’t even acknowledge that your waiting there or try to apologize for not having enough carts or to offer some sort of explanation as to why we were all waiting there… come on get your stuff together, customer acknowledgement is 101 core basics for anything in the hospitality or service industries, it’s the quickest way to build a reputation (could be a positive or a negative) It was rather apparent that they over booked today and allowed to many walk ons and because of it every hole had an over extended wait(some times 3 groups at one tee box), there was no ranger present to help keep the pace of play up and because of the lack of any authority there were groups leapfrogging around the course, at one point a random 4 some some how got in front of us halfway through the back nine…

The course itself played well but the lack of customer service and obvious issues with groups playing multiple balls on each stroke, groups jumping from hole to hole, and the lack respect to the patrons for a scheduled tee time is enough for me to say that I will not be going back anytime soon… It was so dysfunctional and unorganized that one of our members elected to leave because only one cart came in so two of us went to get started ( already late to our tee time) he waited another 20min for a cart before he finally said screw it and left to go home. So I paid for one cart and one round of 18 that was never able to be utilized. I tried to call and talk with the course manger but I received no answer multiple times when I called. This was a very disappointing experience to say the least and I would not recommend going here because of it.

Wonderful Round Of Golf

Excellent course with a wonderful layout. My only constructive feedback is the dirt driveway, parking lot and very dated Golf carts.

Great Layout

Great course layout. Tee boxes were hard to get my tee into. Greens were rough. Again, course LAYOUT was awesome. Need to fix up certain things.

Great Layout - disappointing greens

You can play fast. It’s a course with no tricks. Hit it straight and you have a chance to score. But, played early AM round and the greens weren’t cut until we go to 17. So, they were really slow. Also, temporary green on #10 that no one said anything about in the pro shop.

Great course to play

Played as a 4some. Great course and never waited to hit. Nice layout and pace of play. The only negative comment I have would be vending machines on the course. They had a few but some didn't work. Other than that, I'd go back again.
