A great deal

IDK what all the complaining about conditions, this course has been in great shape for years. I play it maybe once a month, as of July 2021 it was near perfect. A long but good walking course. The only knock I have is greenskeeper needs to spray the Dalis grass clumps or they will take over the Bermuda. Also no driving range.
Prince's burgers and beer for sale, good prices. One of the starters can be a little surly but it's nothing like the rude staff at Gus Wortham. Weekday senior is $15 to walk. Replay is free except $10 cart fee. You just can't beat this deal Sometimes there are tournaments so best call before walking up. On weekends it costs more and it can get pretty slow but that's golf.

Rough shape

Greens were recently punched but that is the least of the problems you'll encounter. The greens are currently trash on all but 2 or 3 greens. Most are growing some type of fungus that is eating up the grass.

Conditions/Etiquette

The conditions were OK on the fairway but anything off the fairway was dried mud and dust. Had someone hit a ball the next hole over and had to wait 15 min to tee off at the ninth hole because people kept on driving on the fairway. If you can't hit them straight every time or if you like to play with people who know basic etiquette don't play here.

No golf etiquette

Just cuz you buy $2,000 worth of golf clubs and designer clothes wont help you' to have a better game.
Most players are nice, others don't care how bad they hold up gameplay. They refuse to let a single to play through that is faster or better skilled.

What you expect for the price

Cheap enough, however pace of play is poor, waiting at every hole. Condition of fairways and greens not the greatest and the driving range is poor.

Slow play

Started at 2:40p. There were so many beginners out there. The pace of play was very slow. Lucky to finish 9 holes when it was getting dark enough to find ball.

Where's the Marshall?

Pace of Play is normally ridiculous on the weekend, which is why I opted for a Tuesday afternoon tee time. Well, it felt like a Saturday. My tee time was at 2:30. I tee'd off at 2:35. I was on hole 9 at 5:30. Unacceptable!

A joke

First thing is on golf now it says it was going to cost me $28 but we get to the course an it’s $38 which ruined my experience right there cause that was the only reason I went there. I could have played at other courses near my house for that price which are way better. An the course is in bad condition the greens had divots on every hole an on some of the greens they had tiny rocks on them. An the pace of play was horrible an had kids jump on the course from there house at 8.

Pace of play always an issue

Slow play golfers and lack of course marshals make for a very long round. Today took 9 holes for the slowsome in front of us to let us play through.
