Great day of play!!

We had a great round of golf! We were in play on 2nd hole when our cart had a flat tire! I mean, pancake flat! We called the pro shop and we had immediate service, replacement cart and continued to have a great day!! Gotta love a sunny day, outstanding course, and service that was beyond excellent!!

Over booked

Greedy golf course and over booked. 2nd time playing gold course in the last month and the 2nd time that we couldn't even tee off on time. 25 minutes late to tee off. 5.75 hour pace for 18 holes. Poor conditions around the green, was 6 feet off the green multiple times and everytime I'm chipping off of hardened dirt. We have had a lot of rain lately but the course made no attempt to fix the bunkers. Should be a 50$ round not 62.

First Time Playing

Much better than blue course IMO

I enjoyed this course. It takes you on a very nice route throughout the property.
Interesting, and sometimes quite difficult holes throughout. My only complaint would be the pace of play was a bit slow (and I was there daytime, on a weekday), and there was no ranger (only a starter). With a ranger keeping up pace, this would definitely be a 5 star course for me. The course is well kept, the clubhouse is nice, staff is friendly, and if you can get a good priced hot deal, it's a good value.
If you are trying to decide between this and the blue course, I would choose gold. The blue was very uninteresting (albeit easier), and less well kept IMO. I would not play blue again, but will definitely come back for some more gold.

Starting to come back here more often

I tend to play the gold course here. I find it moderately challenging, pace of play is normally good and today I was blessed with perfect weather.

I really do like this track, they also have excellent practice facilities and I would normally have stopped off for a beer and burger, but it was too early

Walked

Pace: Paired with another single and had a great round. The 3some and 4some ahead of us moved really fast!

Conditions: Tees and fairways were in good shape. Greens were a little long/thick/slow. Bunkers could use some love. Rough was reasonable.

Staff: Very friendly and welcoming. Good people!

Value: In 2021 they raised their walking rates $10. ($45 wkday; $55 wkend). At $35/$45 they were fair. But I don't think the current rates make this course a good value. Look for a Hot Deal online.

Layout: Fun. #1 and #18 will test your driver. #10 is a fun island green par 5.

Marked "I would not recommend" only because of the value. If you can find an online deal I would absolutely recommend playing this course.
