Course in rough shape
Course got fried during the summer drought. Going to take a long time to recover. Some greens are ruined. Fried down to bare soil in spots.
Greens got aerated a while ago adding to the problem.
Power carts only available til 11am. All other courses rent carts til 2pm
Bunkers all updated.
For November golf the course was in good shape. They added sand to the bunkers and were very playable. Followed a beginner, but they moved along okay.
The course conditions were deplorable not worth the $49.00 charged for walking. The greens, all of them, were bald ( plain dirt ) in many places. Will never play here unless conditions improve dramatically.
Availability & course condition
There are helps at the office counter to book tee-times very friendly, if you walk in, you can play more than 90% for sure. The course condition is good enough on fair ways and greens, The course is actually very challenging for all kind of skill. You don’t need to be a long hitter but you need a lot of accuracy to play and have low score
Greens are fried, fairway grass is dry and yellow
I guess the summer drought has really dried up the course. Greens are quite bad now. Lots of HUGE dry and bare patches. Fairways feature dry fried yellow grass on rock hard dirt.
Fairways shots are difficult right now. I think you need a jackhammer to make a divot...
Nice course, but its in rough shape. Wait until Springtime...
Love the course layout
Good walking course. Some green were damaged by the heat which didn’t rain in a month . So many courses had the same problem. Fairways were dry too. But you can’t complained you just paid under $50 a round here. Love the course layout.
Fairways obviously a little burnt right now due to lack of any rain. Was surprised the greens were actually over-watered and mushy.. lot of footprints and just general squishiness. My guess is they are trying to save them from dying over this dry spell.. which is a tall task. 37$ after 2pm though I will not argue with conditions.. just happy to get a t-time in this area....
Great course for the cost
Great course! We have played there couple of occasions and had a great time. Watch out for the line of trees between holes as these can be an unexpected hazard.
If they can put more money to maintain the course
Condition was below average but what can you expect for pay under $50 a round for prime time . And pay under $40 after 1pm . Love the layout of the course which was very fun to play there. Each hole have different character . If you don’t mind the fairway condition , green had some dry spots but can manageable.
