Not Bad but loud and poorly kept

A fun little course but loud due to planes taking off from the airport across the street. Looks like it hasn’t been maintained in a while, a lot of things busted due to vandalism.

Old city course

I know we are conserving water, but at least put new Tee pads out on all the holes for the Executive course.

Waste of money

Signage for hole direction is bad, very slow. Unorganized with tee times.

Great Staff needed Practice for short game

Great place to touch up your short game with 18 holes to practice on. Finally hit a super birdie from 30 yards out with 60 wedge drained it on 4 bounces straight to hit the flag and dunked in, worth of ESPN top 10. Only thing was on back 9, we were the only ones out there, must be the heat wave. Wow it was hot but couldn't stop my from finishing. Best staff and comfortable play. 5 stars for service.

Solid Par-3

Has been my go-to for a quick 54 for a while. They work to keep the greens healthy and in good condition. Current drought has left some parts of the fairway dry, but not a major issue. Overall, a good course.

Nice par 3 course with very good greens!

Great value and very walkable!
This 18 hole 3 par course (holes from 90 to about 135 yards).
It has very good greens and great for practice and for working on your short game.
I miss the markings at each hole with the yardage etc.. They should really get this done!
I think they otherwise doing a good job with the upkeep.

I will be back soon ;-)

I love this 3 par 18 hole course!

As usual, we had a great time and the pace was good today!
The greens are in good conditions and the staff is very nice! They need to update the numbers for each T and the yardage sign because I see people getting confused!

Great neighborhood 9 hole par 30 course with 3 par 4's

I Play here as often as I can. It can be crowded in the weekends, but if you have a chance to play on a weekday, I would definitely recommend it! The greens are in good shape and it is only walkable, which is no problem!
I will be back soon!

Blah course that is crowded on the weekends

For those who play a fair amount of golf this course is a waste of time. It is not even a good place to work on your short game as the greens aren't usually in good condition and there aren't many tricky hazards to test pitching or chipping skills.

Awful

Seriously don't like to give bad reviews but this course had nothing to say good about it. The tee boxes are rock hard mats and even the forward tees are dirt. There are barely any signs which leads to confusion if you've never been there. This is more of a course for small kids learning how to play.
