Greens were in good shape

this course is great to practice your iron play with greens in good shape. course is obviously an older course with some tee boxes that aren't ideal. But its a good value to practice your full bag of irons if you choose with the occassional opportunities for your driver.

Read the fine print

I'm furious that golf now mispresented and or failed to adequately detail the fact I was paying for only 9 holes of golf.....when in fact was lead to believe the golf round was for 18 holes. If in fact the round was for 9 holes ...there was no benefit in using your service. I would have done just as well by making a tee time directly with the course.
Very disappointed.!

Greedy

All tee times double booked because they know people will still pay to play for some reason. This course is full of beginner golfers so by double booking each tee time they are slowing down an already snails pace of play even more.

Windy weather
Used cart

Great little Par 3!

Reasonably priced, aside from windy conditions we had a great time playing! Never felt rushed as people behind us were also slower paced... the course at hole 4 leads across the street which was a little confusing as there were no signs... but we found our way! Towards the end there was some construction and dirt surrounding the 17th hole ...but we had to skip out early so we quit after 16... still, for the price and convenient location for me, it was overall great!

Just bad.

From the starters all the way to the 9th, getting food( which was terrible as well), and through the last putt on 18. Don’t go. Wasting your time and money. Spend a day off elsewhere.
