Too many people

Course was in ok shape. We waited roughly 30min to hit our first hole. Seemed the course was very backed up that day. by the time we got on the 3rd hole things started to open up a bit. overall course conditions were fair. Waiting 30 min to tee off may have put a sour taste on the round.

STOP

Unless you are teaching someone to play golf and don’t wanna bring them to a real golf course STOP and do not play. It is not worth $5 let alone $20

Joke

This course is by far the worst maintained course I have played in this area. The greens are horrendous; ball marks galore, sandy spots, bare spots.... fairways are in alright shape (when they are mowed) speaking of mowing the driver was just going right in front of us, while we were swinging, had no respect for the shooter. Then when we put our hands up to ask what he was doing he just yelled and told us to “HIT IT” while he was right in front of us. Ended up just picking the ball up to skip to next hole so he could be behind us... cart path only as well because they think that by not having people drive on the grass it might grow back... little tip if you watered the grass besides when it rains you might not have to tell people cart path only. Do not waste your money here, even if your buddy owes you a round and wants to take you here, save yourself the trouble and go play somewhere else.

Stay Away

Could possibly be the worst golf course I ever played. Plus carts have to stay on paths only. Gestapo yells at you if you don’t . And bring a hard hat. A lot of Brown or bald fairways too.

Very surprised.

I’ve played this course in the past and it used to be in great condition today I played they live in grass grow through the sand traps some of the fairways were burnt the greens had growth And holes on them. It’s too bad because this used to be a nice little executive course. I won’t be returning.

So so for a quick 9

Lack of water is showing up on fairways. Greens are better than other courses around here. Staff could be friendlier.

Rude horrible people

First I pull up and the “ Ranger” is yelling at me telling me to hurry up and pay. Then she moves on to another gentleman squawking at him about “ not being in a parking spot” ( he was ) This wasn’t a great start. I get to the clubhouse where my friend had just paid for himself and he’s waiting on the first tee for me, the extremely over the top rude lady is reprimanding me to walk all the way down to the tee and ask my friend if he was taking a cart. I told her 5 separate times that he was not taking a cart She then slams her hands on the counter and tells me to “ do as i say”. I said no. I told her that ill pay whatever amount she thinks i should pay but I’m not walking to the first tee and back to confirm what I’ve already told her. She has a giant temper tantrum and starts flinging my debt card around and throwing the receipt at me. Tells me “ the ranger will be keeping an eye on you”. Everyone waiting behind me was Laughing at the absurdity of it all. I’m not sure what right this woman thinks she has Speaking to anyone that way but I’ll never be back. I recommend golfing literally anywhere else. The course is garbage on top of it all.

Don’t do it!

There’s only two good things about this place: the staff is extremely friendly and the carts are insanely fast, everything else that’s golf related is probably the worst I’ve seen in the 15 years I’ve been playing golf. Fairways, tee box and greens are all a mess. Actually feels like you’re golfing in someone’s backyard that hasn’t put seed down in two years because they don’t care what the grass looks like. Def not worth the time or money.

fun course but grass needs work

Fun hole setups, lots of tight fairways w/ water. Lots of challenging greens, most were far from flat. Grass was in rough shape however. Very affordable

Course condition was poor - hence the low price

Fairways were in bad shape.... bunkers were hard packed sand with crabgrass throughout ... but on the plus side the greens were maintained well.

At this price I suppose you expect less but not this much less - I think this course needs dome TLC
