Greens need to be repaired
Overall the Golf course and staff are outstanding. .
But the greens need to be cared for.
Greens need more care
Overall excellent course greens need more maintenance
Really nice course. Good challenge with some exceptional holes.
Quick greens but true.
4/5 Would Play Again
Overall, nice course conditions, but a little quirky and tight. I'd definitely play it again though and actually look forward to it. I try to play as many courses as possible over the span of a golf season, so I probably won't be back until next year due to the fact that it's a bit of a drive for me. Local knowledge is a must. I was lucky enough to play with a few guys who play there regularly so they pointed me in the right direction on most holes. My only complaints would be that there are some quirky holes. Some oddly shaped doglegs where you would be forced to hit something shorter off the tee and then have a 190 yard shot into the green. Also, the 17th hole is just not right. No par 3s should be 230 yards for an amateur player. It's just an insanely long par 3 if you ask me.
Tee Boxes: 4/5
Fairways: 4/5 (some were being aerated, but the ones that weren't, were in fine shape. So I imagine the fairways that were being aerated would be good once they are filled in.)
Greens 4/5 (a little inconsistent. Some were fast, some were slow, but it's still early in the season. On top of that, I played on a day that was preceded by a lot of rain)
Bunkers: 3/5 (not in the greatest shape. Some super hard from wetness. I would imagine on a day that wasn't preceded by a lot of rain, they would be a 4/5)
Nice little gem
I had played here many years ago in the winter about 4 times,yesterday was the first time I played since ,and I loved it,a very good short course that requires some specific shots ,greens very good,sand traps had rakes(that's a premium nowadays),I will definitely play here again,also I got a great price on golfnow..
