Quick Greens

Greens were quick and in good shape, rolled true. Course was definitely still saturated, but we played lift, clean, and place.

Sloppy fairways but fast greens

Some holes had marshy fairway conditions and uneven grass. Although it had only been a week since some heavy rains, I expected the drainage to be better. We we also held up by a groundskeeper moving when we were trying to tee off. The greens were mostly really good and fast, something we didn't expect. O really a nice course but needs some attention.

Snack bar was closed at 3 on a Sunday! I love the course and people working there are excellent.
Maybe leave some sandwiches at the restaurant when closing for golfer purchase at the turn. Thanks

No cart and slow play!

The play was slow and had to wait 20 minutes after tee time for a cart. Therefore didn’t get in 18 holes.
Disappointing!

Great course!

If you like narrow fairways and Lester hazards this course is for you! It’s a fun course and is challenging. I totally recommend it. Also you can see the castle when you drive in.

Nice course!
Challenging layout. Greens are in good shape. Fairways are in decent shape. Bunkers were ok. I was only in two. One was nice, the other one could have used more sand.
I would play here again.

Horrible Pace of Play

Sadly I could not play the back 9 as it would've taken over 5 1/2 hours. The staff is always friendly but the course has some maintenance issues. Too bad because it's a nice layout.

Clean and forgiving but challenging,

This is a very fun and clean course to play. Also, it is challenging and forgiving at the same time. I just wish that the food was better more food better prices would make us much easier.
