Late Sept Sunny golf Day

Very nice course and well kept. Difficult because of narrow fairways and extremely hard and fast greens. Our cart broke down at hole 8 and we limped it in after hole 9 and quickly got another one from the course Marshall. We had a foursome ahead of us who didn't know pace of pay edicate and it was exrcruciatingly slow. Would play again.

Tough course that rewards smart play

Greens were fast, fringe was good, good definition between fairway and rough. The grass on some of the T-boxes could be cut shorter but over all good condition. The front 9 is difficult but if you play smart you will be rewarded and the back 9 is a fun 9 and the easier of the two. The difficulty of the course is helping improve my game immensely.

Brutal round

We’ve played this course many times and have been generally happy with it. Today however, there was a 20-39 minute wait at every hole. We finally skipped about 4 holes just to get ahead of the back log. It was painful waiting at every hole.

Never got to play golf because it was backed up about 3 groups of 4. ! No refund according to GolfNow because it was a hot deal. I lost out on golf with no compensation from GolfNow..
