This course looks like it hasn’t been maintained in months

This course has a fairway that looks like the rough on most golf courses.

Bad, bad golf course.

This course takes the cake for the absolute worst golf course I’ve ever played on. Conditions are very poor. Greens were overgrown. There are no fairways. Bunkers were flooded and it hasn’t rained in days. Staff was nice though.

Just a terrible course

I play gold anytime I travel and have played some pretty bad courses in my life. But this BY FAR was the worst course I have ever seen. There is no difference between the fairway and rough. It is all weeds and crabgrass. The greens were terrible. Not ONE was in shape. The water jugs along the way were warm, empty, and/or old. So, basically, DONT DRINK FROM THEM. I am shocked they charge more than $5 to play.

I would have to say in all my years of golfing(I’m 54) I’ve probably played over 100 courses in my life. This course absolutely ranks dead last!! I’ve never played a course in this bad of shape. We played lift clean and place in the fairways and I still couldn’t get a good lie. The frees were atrocious as well. One star gives this course too good of a review. Don’t waste your money unless your hammered drunk!!

Great Elevation Changes

The fairways were basic winter conditions with little grass but playable and the greens puttable. The weather was perfect and pace of play fast. A great experience on an interesting course design. The girl in the pro shop was superb, providing fast, courteous, and beautiful smiling service. Definitely will play again.
