getting better

play here often, not a member but should be. A few months ago, it was kind of bad. NO grass on greens, sand traps were not ever taken care of. But lately fairways have sufficient amount of green grass, Greens are 99%+ covered in good grass, but they are slow. Sand traps are getting better. They have been working Hard to improve the course and with this drought, that can't be easy. For that I say thanks for the hard work Ya'll been doing. Great place to play for the money. As always, the staff is friendly and helpful. They might be looking into serious repair on the cart bridges(wooden bridges) Also need to repair the erosion problem on Hole 15. I pray nobody falls in the hole. But love playing there!!!!

Great greens

The greens were all in great shape. They were freshly mowed. If this area starts to receive some rainfall, I’m sure they will be mowed an additional degree, adding a bit more speed to the greens.

The course has a fairly difficult layout but currently is still undergoing repairs caused by the Polar Vortex of last year! Fairways still have some minor baldness issues. The green have made a fantastic recovery just in the past two months. Really enjoy this course and the staff is always top-notch!!

Good for the money

Greens are much better than last fall. Course is very dry off the fairways where I spend most of my time, but we are in a drought. High handicapper course for sure. Easy to find wayward shots. Can’t wait until it gets some good rain out there.

I’ve played this course the past three weekends. The greens are much better than they were several months ago. Greens are slow but are definitely coming back!

Course is a great place for a low handicap to go out and grind on a good layout.The pace of play is always good .I have been playing this course since it was owned by Lawrence Marshall .The Greens could always use a cutting to be seeded and to be double cut .the layout is great .One Drawback is they need to keep cold water in the coolers during summer months. The current staff is great,maybe if cost effective cook on weekdays also seems to be 25-30 2 somes or more out on the days I'm out with nothing hot to eat at the turn ..The Driving range is a improvement but make sure the Mats are solidly planted they move every time you hit off them..The one fan for 9 hitting booths is lost math on me maybe add more .Overall a steal and a Gem for 24 dollars ,for good golfers the greens is where it all comes down to .Get them up on the Stimpmeter to a 9 at least....Thank You For the place for us to enjoy
