Don’t bother

Avoid this course at all costs Poorly maintained, poorly managed. If you don’t have anything to do for 5 or 6 hours then this is the course for you. Pack a lunch if you decide to go.

Rough around the edges

This is an interesting course with a nice variety of holes and some pretty tough greens. The fairways are in decent condition and the greens are in fair condition. Cart paths are practically unpaved with plenty of holes and bumps. Employees were fairly unpleasant. Still, all in all, a very good value for the cost and worth the trip. The bar would be okay during non-Covid times.

Nice Friendly Good Value

Not sure the date but October or November. Nice place to play. It’s a little slow because it’s inexpensive but usually we don’t care. The clubhouse is in need of a tear down and rebuild but that too doesn’t really matter because it’s about the golf. The course has a lot of elevation changes with high tee boxes and elevated greens making those challenging. The cart paths too could use some repairs and they do flood on one side. The grounds are kept up well. For the money it’s all good.

Lots of elevation changes, average for the price of you don’t live nearby

A long way from the city. The ground was very hard in some places, especially around the greens. Traps were flat and solid, more of a sandy rough than an actual trap in several cases.

A lot of elevation changes makes for an interesting challenge but the course isn’t terribly long so there are quite a few scorable holes if you hit it straight. Unfortunately I was all over the place that day.

The par 3’s are fun because of the elevation again and if you have some wind, you can get some video game style challenges.

All in all, solid course. I chose it because I was in the area. A little pricey and for someone living in the city, I wouldn’t play again unless I found myself out that way.

LOST

This course could have been a great one. But the layout and lacking of signs made it extremely confusing. I’ve never played a course that I had to ask where the next tee box was. But here I had to do it a couple of times. Not to mention the borderline head on we where almost in because they had a single trail up to a tee box around a blind corner. One of the fairways was all standing water in a fairway when we haven’t had significant rain in weeks. Just overly not impressed and disappointed for the price we paid.

Love the Elevation Changes

They just aerate the greens which blows. Otherwise, I was very happy with the course.

Aeration

Perfect day at a great course that I have not played in almost 10 years! Would have liked to see the website updated with the aeration that took place recently. Maybe that is why I got a good rate, but would have liked to know in advance to make a decision to play here or not. I regret that I have not played this course more frequently as it was perfect for my skill level.
