Great layout. Plenty challenging. Very scenic. But greens weren’t mowed for our 11:40 tee time. Sand traps were in poor condition. Too much bare ground in fairways.

Absolutely slowest round

Hard to get a rhythm going. Waited at every single hole. Round took over five and a half hours. Sad because it really made us have a poor impression of the course.

Great time with a HOT DEAL

We were looking for a place to play, so that we could get in 18 before going to work.. most courses were busy and expensive.
This GOLF NOW Hot Deal popped up and yes it was at 6:50 AM, but after we passed the group in front of us, we finished in 3 :15 hours and it was a perfect day to golf

Course in poor condition

I haven’t played vineyards in a few years .
I was disappointed in how bad the fairways were and the sand traps were the worst I’ve ever seen . I was bumped because I talked it up to my friend who I played with . It was very disappointing to see it in that kind of shape

Tough Back 9

Played this course a few times and today was the first time I didn’t lose 6 balls in the front 9! This is a tough Par 70 course for me because of the slopes and hazards. The back 9 is challenging. Enjoy playing this course. The fairways were decent and the greens were nice. Don’t use a white ball on 10 and 18 because they are near the driving range. If you’re a righty and slice your white ball, you won’t find it.

Relentless Greens

Pace was great! Staff was very friendly, I didn't catch her name but she was very nice and awesome! Play with two of their staffs, Gary and Mike, nice guys! The greens were slow and very bouncy or bumpy, perhaps if management had ground crew give 'en a nice roll they would be in excellent condition. Your balls will bounce all over the place including short putts. You will not need a beach towel to get in the bunkers, little or no sand at all... Fairways and roughs are not too bad! Overall a pretty good day!!!
