Superb Executive Course

Challenging. Bring all your clubs.
Par 3s from 110 yards to 225 yards. Par 4s are long enough and demand control.
Bet you don't shoot your handicap here.
If it's windy you have no chance.
Good luck. Have fun.

Good executive course

It’s a good executive course, with a fair amount of challenge. Beautiful mountain views and layout. However, the greens aren’t in the best condition. Lots of bumps from unfixed ball marks.

Holiday play with COVID-19 Awesome

Playing with family members who are skeptical about the Covid-19. Everyone was at ease. Thank you Mask worn, safe distance practice and disinfected cart. Nice time out with family that have not been together for over a year. Clean fun!

Decent course + Great pace = Good value!

We had a pretty fast round today: 18 holes in about 3 hours! (Shout out to the very cool, considerate guy who let my hubby and I play in front of his threesome!) The course itself had interesting layouts, some water, elevation changes, and forced carries. (Oh, and since there's water, there's lots of ducks, geese, and their care packages they leave behind... just watch where you step.) It appears that the grounds keepers do their best to take care of the course, but players don't repair their ball marks on the greens, etc. Overall, fun round!

Great Ciurse

We played on a Saturday. Tee time was noon, we were done by 3:30. Perfect weather and course conditions. Can’t wait to come back and play.

Pros and cons

Well, to start, the pro shop guy was short and very rude to my playing partner when she asked about the restroom. And I know it’s covid and all that but some courtesy doesn’t take much effort at all really; you work at a County facility, respect the clientele.
Most of the tee boxes were fair to poor. The greens were in terrible shape from lazy and/or uneducated players, ball mark galore and there was some spotting on various parts. The one fairway bunker I found was hard pan and personally that doesn’t bother me. The fairways were in good condition. Like you see pretty much everywhere now, you’ll notice 25 handicaps playing the tips but surprisingly, the pace of play was good. Was the overall experience great? No. Am I grateful to be playing affordable and decent golf during a pandemic? Yes. We’ll leave it at that. Enjoy the walk

Course needs maintenance. Bathrooms need maintenance also. Hardly any water pressure. Sand traps need new sand.

Okay for the money

This course is poorly laid out and terribly marked. And by terribly marked I mean no markings at all. Holes are not marked, directions to next hole are unclear, so today, we actually missed a hole because we couldn’t tell where it was.
The good news is it is not a very difficult course, designed for golfers like myself that are low skilled.

Plays a little slow in places, but a fun, “quick” round
