Only worth it with a hot deal…

Course is in OKAY shape. Disappointed. Greens were very slow. Sand traps unplayable and many filled with puddles of water. Fairways were good. They charge $50 to play here on the weekend here normally though. Not worth it IMO.

Not bad

Course is wide open and very forgiving. Course was in pretty good shape for a muni . We had noon tee time and went off at 11:30 as a twosome. There were two other twosomes on the course. That’s it! We played in just over 4 hours. Most greens were pretty good. One or two had maintenance holes. Snack bar is pretty reasonable. Just don’t get a fountain drink, ice tea or tap water as you can taste the sulfur. All in all, it was a positive experience.

This course doesn’t look difficult but it is challenging

Had a great time at this course, very long par fours for an average golfer. Course was in good condition although the Sand traps needed a little attention. Overall worth the trip and the food was great.

Great day at North Kern!

The course starter was great in demonstrating flexibility with course back-ups. Enjoyed myself tremendously while jumping around a couple of times due to natural player back ups instead of frustrating myself while waiting.
