Backed Up

Payed 10 dollars for a tee time on Golf Now. I could have just walked up and played. There were 6 groups waiting to tee off even though it was our tee time. It was very disorganized. Staff doesn’t do anything to control the crowd. It took 45 minutes to play 2 holes in a par 3. Ridiculous!!

Lack of upkeep

While being able to walk on is a perk, especially during covid, the course isn’t well maintained. I expect winter dead grass and some dirt so I’m not complaining about that. But the mats are old and mis-shapen. The course is littered with litter. Dumb customers with no respect but worse, a facility that doesn’t cleanup. The whole course feels like it’s heading downhill. It’s sad because it’s a good location and it’s nice to be able to play either 18 or 9. But it’s slightly depressing to see the unkempt tee boxes, horribly confusing course markers and signs and the lack of trash cleanup

Can be better

The course layout is confusing, the grass is basically dirt on many holes. There is no enforced of rules on the course, and the is no staff anywhere but the club house to help.

Go somewhere else- anywhere else

I wasn’t expecting much, but it was worse than I expected. Mats were terrible, no fairways, and the greens were pretty bad as well. Would literally play anywhere else

excellent value

first time here, will not be the last.
the greens are in excellent condition compared to other par 3 courses in the area, but the fairways, if you can call them that because it is a par 3 course, are a little dry.

Staff is terrible

The Asian guy at the starter was probably the worst person I have encountered on a golf course

This course has so much potential!!

This course has so much potential. However, the owners have completely let the greens keepers down with no support. The mats haven't been changed out in at least 3 years, they are uneven and in terrible shape. The actual greens are random at best some aren't terrible but that isn't saying much. The "fairways" are absolutely horrible, you would have thought when the Covid 19 restrictions were in place we had hoped Ownership would have taken advantage of getting the "fairways" in some kind of shape. However it is difficult to find actual grass to hit off of. It's great that so many people have taken up golf however the staff isn't proactive in giving some simple golf etiquette.
1. You only get one mulligan per 9 holes,
No hitting 2 or more balls off the tee please.
2. Please be aware of Pace of Play.
3. Fix your divots!!
4. No Spectators Please, worse case don't have them walk on the greens with sandels on!
5. Please don't throw your cigarette butt's on the greens either!
