No warm ups

Ball collector is down, again so the range is down. Other than that, you can’t beat it for the money.

Nice weekend get away

Very forgiving fairways, greens in good shape, fairways in good shape. Good challenge for the moderate golfer.

Great course, Bad Greens

Have played here many times. Always been a great layout, nice surroundings. Fairways are ok but the greens are the downfall. They need to spend some money and get the greens fixed.

The greens were in very rough condition. I’ve never seen them like that before. Lots of large bare areas where the grass had not grown in. May just be the cooler spring weather.

Nice course

Not my first time at this course. It has beautiful scenery but most of the fairways were covered with worm mounds. Also not the courses fault or anything but some of the other golfers there were extremely rude.

Good course but dismal greens

Course was in good shape and a nice challenge but greens were horrible. No grass at all on greens. Need to build temporaries and reseed greens.
