A bad day

There were 4 groups of us in the course all jumbled together on the course on 4 consecutive holes. Front 9 took 2.5 hours. Guys in front of us had no business hitting from the blues. When I asked the ranger if we could play the front nine again to increase pace of play he said the course was wide open. Fairways were more like rough. Rough was thick. This course has potential but needs better staff.

The course is in the need of some TLC
Most of the tees were moved up and the course played short. The rough is thick and losing balls is a problem if not in the short grass. Played with family and it was a good day to play.

Course is laid out oddly with holes almost crossing each other. Greens are tiny and most sand traps have grown into grass bunkers. Greens were concrete and some looked diseased. There was a leaf issue but that wasn't so much their fault. They do not have many carts and the facilities are very poor. No on-course support at all.

Nice value

Greens are in pretty decent condition. Fairways aren't tee boxes aren't great. Not much as far as hazards go, but a couple interesting holes with the shape and tree location. They do have a very small range with a few mats with a bunch of beat up balls but its enough to loosen up.

Greens were not in good shape

A lot of leaves on the green and dead grass also. Since this was a summer round I was baffled there were dead leaves all over the course.

DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME!

first off the lady in the clubhouse had terrible attitude and needs to work on her social skills, second the manger who runs it, and claims to have ran multiple golf courses comes up to me and my partners (total of 4) because we had a tee time at 8am and the people in front of us who were playing there own ball and had there kids with them,holding onto the back of the golf carts, were just playing slow so,we did what anybody would do unless there was a tournament going on that day, we decided to start on the back 9, and he came flying down after were about to finish the hole yelling saying you can't start at the back 9, you had an 8am tee time so what shouldve been a 3hr day turned into a 5hr day, the fairways were in terrible condition, the grass was so high the fairways were basically severe roughs, clumps of grass all around, dead leaves, greens were terrible and looked like someone ran a metal rake through them, believe me when I say this, DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT COMING TO THIS COURSE, if its either this course or stay at home, save yourself the money!!!
