Greens

I’m not sure if they have a rodent problem or what, but the greens/ cart path / tee boxes were full of animal poop everywhere.

Fun executive course

First time playing here and we enjoyed it. It is well kept. The only thing was the bar and grill wasn’t open. It’s the only course I know of they said you can bring your own BYOB, which I would recommend since there was no place to buy any.

Washrooms should be kept open at the clubhouse area otherwise the course gives you a good short game test

DO NOT GOLF HERE

Save yourself the trouble and book somewhere else. The price is not worth dealing with this horribly run course with some of the worst management I've ever experienced. Judy was rude, condescending, and downright mean. She even spoke poorly about her own staff. In addition, Judy was unwilling work with my group who booked this course for the main event of our weekend retreat. We paid for 6 golfers with 2 spectators, but were randomly kicked off the course for "insurance reasons" after only two of our golfers had teed off from the first hole.

I will never be back and will continue to spread the word to avoid this course.

Our savior during the hot months

This course is so much fun to play, a little bit of everything (except par 5s). The staff is friendly, the place is laid back and it's just a joy to play for the price. I strongly recommend this course to anyone looking for a quick round of 18 holes.

EXTREMELY SLOW PLAY

Never had a slower round of golf. No Marshall. Groups of Two, one after the other. Novice players playing the blue tees. We waited 3-5 minutes at every tee box. Unacceptable. Course itself could be fun and a great way to practice your short game, but pace of play made it excruciating. Greens are very slow. Very unfortunate, I will not return.
