Fairways are a must!
What makes this course difficult are the tight fairways. If you miss them more than likely you’ll be in the river bed that runs through the entire course. It’s usually dry so you can hit out of it, but it is virtually impossible to get your club on the ball. The real problem is the fairways are hard and have very little grass on them. That’s the rub. No reward for a good fairway shot.
The layout was very confusing. Flags were ticked away behind trees and hills - hole 8 was probably the best hole on the course and resembled a traditional fairway with the flag in a linear distance . Other than that, your crisscrossing fairways that are bombarded with sand and a river that is more sand than anything else
Depends on what you value
If you want to be safe for COVID, definitely not the place for you. Around the practice green, driving range, club house, not a mask to be seen. And this is with about 30-40 people. Some guy wasn't even wearing shoes on the green. (not COVID related, but still... it's a golf course).
The course itself is fine. Very hilly. Greens were better condition than I was expecting for the price point. A lot of the holes are different from other courses in the area (probably having to do with the runoff sand river thing in the middle of the course) but becomes repetitive through the round.
Short course, for those who don't hit a long ball. I think I pulled my driver on 3-4 holes. Hit the green in 2 on 2 of the Par5's playing from the blues.
One thing that really got us though was on the back 9 there's a steep cart path with sand all over it - makes it very slick. We were coming down as another group was coming up and while trying to avoid one another, the sand made all of our carts slide to the point where one flipped over and injured one of our players (cart landed on him, cut him up pretty good). When brought up to the course they responded with "thanks for letting us know". About as much care for their customers as they do for COVID. (no, we weren't drinking).
Will I go back? No. Is it worth playing? Maybe, if you want to shake it up a bit or you live very close. Price point is fair for the quality of play, just don't expect yourself to be blown away. No hidden gem here.
Nice Greens is the best I can say
Staff was great!
Desk staff, starter, and cart person did a great job, friendly, approachable and helpful.
The weather was chilly to eventually nice to a little overcast..
Check in and parking was easy. People were following Covid safety practices which was good..
The greens are in good shape
The practice putting greens were fun, they put an 18 hold putting course together and it helped in keeping busy.
Fairways were terrible. no grass under the ball when you were in the fairway, it was paper thin every where.
Cart paths put you in the line of incoming golf balls from other holes, so you had to be on the watch constantly.
Also the greens were so close to the next tee you really had to watch the group behind you because even it it hit the green, there was good chance it would come your way. We got hit on 3 times, and none of those times were from the group behind us.
They need better fences and maybe bells or lights to tell the groups around you that the green is clear..
Fun for the price!
W come here alot, most of the golfers and all of the staff are friendly. A great place to start golfing, just use your foot wedge to get out of the samd/river running through the course .
The greens are in great shape, but the rest of the course is rough. The layout is very weird. It only has about four par fours. The whole course crosses back and forth over the river so it's a lot of up and down with elevated greens. We walked and and that was a mistake.
Everything is in chaos
They have completely altered their course layout basically 15 Par-3 holes out of 18 holes no kidding you read right. I booked hot deal $20/ person riding for Dec 29 on Golfnow. For the holiday season while everybody else were busy and raising price they stayed pretty calm. Anyway I kind smelt fishy so I called the pro shop. A lady assured me that there was nothing wrong with the course and they finished their major maintenance in Sept so now it’s in great shape. Yeah right! Will never come back!
Course conditions under-par
Hard to chip something when the ground beneath is solid mud or just plain dry dirt
Ok course but needs some TLC
The course seems pretty run down but the greens and sand traps were in good shape. But the price was very reasonable so it made up for the course conditions.
Hit the ball around
Fun new course I played today. Worth the money and more. Greens in great shape. Will be in the course rotation.
