Nice little Course

Fun course not too much danger. Pretty open and easy to walk. 5 shorter par 4's and the rest par threes. Well maintained and the range balls are free. Pretty quick to walk about 2 hours. No snack bar or any other amenities. Nice little exutive course.

Good par 3

Quite a wind the day we played. But we had fun. The push carts are in good condition. The course is easy to follow. But don’t golf on a windy day!

This is a great course for learning, very few hazards. We played there a lot when it was 20 a round but don’t feel that is worth 30 compared to courses such as Cimaron where you get 18 holes and a cart for 34 when joining the players club.

Windy and wet

Almost didn’t honour our booking, tried to say they didn’t have a relationship with Tee Off or Golf Now even though my reservation was clearly on her screen. Glad I kept the confirmation on my phone. The course layout is OK, strong cross wind throughout the round. On the sixth hole tee box, some idiot turned on the fairway sprinklers, combined with the cross wind we got soaked. They did turn the sprinklers off after they realized where we were. Sprinklers were still on at the green so skipped that green. Overall experience wasn’t great, probably won’t go back.

Pathetic

The course is in terrible condition. We found out later that the scalping had begun. Why were they advertising on Golf Now when it was barely playable. The course layout is ridiculous you have to walk across greens to get to the next tee. It's a walk only with a handcart and the fairways arei n terrible condition, completely dry as if there's never been any watering. GolfNow should remove this course from their offerings.

$14 to play, worth every penny. Course is in good enough shape, we were the only players on the course allowed for a stress-free day playing with beginning golfers who loved the experience. Staff is super friendly range balls included fun time with the family, perfect for beginners enjoy.
