Rude is an understatement

Interacting with Randy, Cody and almost every other employee have been my worst experiences at any golf course I've ever been in my life. I'll be taking my son out of the operation 36 lessons immediately, I'm going somewhere else whether I get a refund or not. Professionalism is not part of the culture of this "golf course". We are new to the area and live a few minutes away, I was planning on keeping my son in lessons and practicing here indefinitely. It goes without saying myself and my family won't be returning.

Great 9 hole course

Love playing this course. Always tests my tee shots. Some narrow fairways and well placed water and bunkers. Would play there more often if it was closer to home.

Morning Golf

Tee time at 750a. Got in before a men's tournament. Always like the layout of this course. October so no rain but fairways and greens were nice. The greens were punched a while ago and sand is there but playable. Finished 9 in under 2 hours. We didn't feel like we were waiting for that's fine. It's Saturday.

Conditions Great

Tee boxes, fairways, and greens are all in great shape. I will not go to a course if I know the greens to be in poor shape. The value is unbelievable as I paid $12.00 with Golf Now for 9 holes. This is not an easy Par 33 course. There are some 105-yard par 3s and some 180+ yard par 3s. The par 5 is long and narrow with trees, OB, and water and sand beckoning your ball.

Greens!!

I really like this local 9 hole. The course was in great shape. The greens were much quicker than previous rounds but were soft enough for approach shots. Thank you greens keepers and fellow golfers for repairing ball marks.
