Enjoyable Round

Went off the 1st tee at 9:40 and never saw another golfer the entire round. Played with pleasant locals who helped make the round an overall enjoyable experience.

Great Layout

I always play here when I come to town. Challenging layout with lots of undulations. Greens were really nice, some fairways and tee boxes could use some work though.

The course was “ok”. I have played better courses in the area that were less expensive. The greens were still very sandy which I dont think should command a 60 dollar weekday price. I was also paired with regulars which were nice gentleman, but I had a tee time of 830 am and didnt make it to hole 10 until 11 am.

Nice track! Friendly staff

Joe - with course operations - was an excellent ambassador.

Greens are SLICK! Some ugly spots on greens and tee boxes, but that happens.

Bunker sand is nice, I found plenty of them.

$83 for the round is a bit salty to me. It’s a beautiful course, but $83 is simply too much.

Caught a deal

Caught a deal for 62 dollars on a Sunday midday. Course was great, conditions in most spots were solid. Pace of play was held up by a foursome in front of us ours that left us sitting on a tee box with the group behind us usually watching us tee off. No ranger to improve it.

Great Place to Play

For me, the selection of tees makes this course playable for nearly any level player. For us older folk, the gold and silver tees offer a great start for each hole. I didn’t feel like I couldn’t get a green in regulation due to distance.

The one thing I thought was off today were the greens. Usually these greens are great but today the were mostly slower that normal and a little bit inconsistent. They were still playable but hard to judge.

Not worth it right now

I normally have nothing but positive things to say about this course. But I played 3 days in a row over the Labor Day weekend and just was not impressed at the $85 rate. That is a premium price and you expect a premium course.

Several greens have significant bentgrass damage spots and weed issues. They were running much slower than normal which was frustrating. Fairway bunkers are fluffy vs firm sand and half of them clearly had nto been maintained by grounds crew or raked. In addition, one day my girlfriend came out when I played as a single and I was charged a $20 or $25 rider fee. The next day I also played as a single and they gave me my own cart no issues (I don't mind pairing up or anything just how it went down). For someone who plays this course probably 30 times a year this kind of miffed me a bit.

For this weekend pace of play was much better than expected and the staff was friendly as always.

Expect a long round

Fun course in good condition, but prepare for slow play. The greens are not perfect - I'm sure due to the brutal heatwave, so deal with it. The biggest complaint...on the front 9, we saw the beverage cart at least 5 times - awesome! On the back (different course employee), not once! Here is the kicker - the "Bev Attendant" was sitting in a fully stocked cart, hanging out near the putting green in the shade because "it was so hot"...exactly, thanks for the help!
