Golf Carts

Management had told me that these were going to be replaced in two weeks the last time I asked, it has been almost two months. The golf course itself is in pretty good condition, and the staff is very professional and friendly. But carts, GOT TO GO...!

Hi Pablo, we are in the process of replacing these. The pandemic has slowed down supply lines for carts and we ran into some unexpected interruptions. We are working to improve on our cart situation.

Nice layout, challenging course

Course conditions were ok. Greens were in good condition, consistent and a bit fast. Pace of play was slow, took us a little over 5 hrs. Overall, it is a good challenging course for mid-handicappers (15-20). Cost was average for the course.

Third week in a row playing here and everytime a staff has to run out to bring me a different cart. These relics have done their job already, it's time to bring reliable and better.

Decent Course. Nothing Special

You definitely will not be wow'd by this course. Decent little course but fairways are spotty. Probably a little more yellow than green. That being said, course is priced appropriately and can be worth it if you're just looking to get out and play.
