change in weather and course

I usually arrive one hour before tee time so I can hit a bucket of balls chip and put before playing my round. I was told I had to return 15-20 minutes before my tee time. to get my cart, Hmmm. I then overheard staff tell another person he could take a cart and that people who pay on GOLFNOW have to wait because that is how they do things. I thought that was pretty rude. Several greens had dry spots and the grass around the green was overgrown. Lastly, throughout the course there was overhanging tree limbs over the cart paths.

Another review was correct. This is going downhill fast! Management only cares about scamming an extra $10 upon check in. You will be charged this “hidden” fee if you prefer to ride as a single or if your playing partner chooses to ride as a single/you now become a single and pay for your own cart as well; also if you are playing with a twosome and you are the one single/you will have to pay the extra $10 no matter what! This is all the management cares about! This course should NOT have an SCGA designation. Greens were not cut and patchy; fairways becoming the rough/uneven with weeds growing. Poor course conditions do not inspire great play/confidence. Stay away at all costs!

Going downhill fast

Course was in the worst shape I’ve ever seen it in. Random water issues on nearly every hole- either bone dry or standing water- nothing in between. Fairways are a mess with multiple types of grass in them- but either barren and muddy or overgrown. Greens have a fungal issue and every green had bare dead patches. On top of all this, it took us 5 hours and 20 minutes to finish as we had two super slow groups ahead of us and no Marshall in site. Stay away until they start maintaining this course better!

Nice Layout, Decent greens, the rest a mess

This is a great layout but the fairways and rough are a mess with a variety if grasses, weeds, and bare spots. Watering us inconsistent throughout so my ball was covered in mud most of the round. I recommend improving lies everywhere or you will have a bad time. The greens are in overall good shape but very slow and bumpy. This course needs some TLC!

Nice track to golf. Unfortunately today most of the greens were in terrible shape. Ball would bounce to the hole. Fairways were decent.
We booked a threesome on golfnow. A 4th player joined us. They charged him an extra 10 dollars because he didn’t know us and wanted his ow n cart. No problem. The problem is because he wanted to ride alone they charge our third person to check in 10 dollars extra also. My question is if we only had three playing that day are we gonna be charged 10 extra? That’s not right.
