B. Young’s Review

Everything was fantastic except for the 2 some after 2 some, behind another 2 some & another. I would hope they’d be paired up to speed up the pace of play. Other than that….everything was perfect! Greens, fairways, rough, layout, Etc.

Under maintenance

Overall the course is great, but I would recommend not playing after the aeration of the greens. Sand and holes dont let the ball roll well.

Greens need improvement

It's been a while since I've been here, Played better this time around. Only complaint were the greens. They seemed soaked, needing repairs throughout. They looked muddy but held up well. Not sure why people don't fix divots on the green.

Hot golf

Course was in good shape except the greens were slow probably due to the heat this time of year. Overall a great challenging course. Needed a beverage cart.
