Enjoyable winter golf

Very much enjoyed the experience. The course was in great shape for the month of January. Greens were soft in spots but overall rolled well. Glad the course was open on a surprisingly warm day.

You deserve better

Staff is rude. Messed up the tee time. Yelled at me because he didn’t do his super hard job less than an hour ago. Fairways are tore up. Greens are tore up. Tee boxes… tore up. Bathrooms are even dirty. For the money go somewhere else. This is one of at least 6 other nicer and sometimes cheaper courses within a 30 minute radius. People I’ve talked to say they’re not renewing their memberships because of their dissatisfaction all the way up to the GM. You deserve better.
