Nice but

Very nice course that I play often. This particular day, the greens were a little shaggy. Not sure why. Normally very nice.

Have your Greens

Having played the course before this was the best condition I have seen the course especially the GREENS!
Great Job by the new staff. Now if sand can be added to the sand traps, it would greatly improve the course.

A Tucked Away Gem

Very nice and well maintained course with a beautiful layout. A nice easy flowing course. No crazy hazards which made the round very enjoyable. Greens and fairways are taken care of. The greens were quick. My only issue is the holes. Whoever cut the holes in to the greens left the cups up just a smidge which made it frustrating because the ball rimmed out most holes. Slow enough to get in the hole rimmed around the hole and kicked out. Fast enough to get in the hole and it would hop out. That must just be the course. The most frustrating item about the course is the lack of markings. Only some holes had a blue or white dot with faded paint on the cart path. Zero markings on the course. Minor overall I suppose.
Staff was super friendly in the pro shop and in the club house. Good golf course food and reasonable prices. I will be back!

Hit or Miss

This course is hit or miss. Play it after a week of rain and you may find the coures in Great condition, Play it when dry it plays like a rock and it will test your ability to striking the ball first. The sand bunkers need sand, as well as the fairways to soften the ground. Saturday or Sunday on a hot day is brutal at a 5 to 5.5hr round
All in All I still like the course but can be much better.

Been playing here 45 years... best shape I've ever seen

This has always been a mid tier course and enjoyable to play when it was in good shape. Which has been often rare in August for the past 45 years Ive been playing here.
I heard new owners took over recently. The greens were a little slow (9 on the stimp) but rolled incredibly true. Thick, full grass. Great greens.
Fairways are real good considering the lack of rain. So they are watering, In years past sometimes the fairways would brown out by August because of H2O conservation. Almost always a good lie.
Rough was full and thick , but cut to a reasonable height .Meaning we didn't lose any balls like we did at a couple nearby courses
Tee's were pretty good. No complaints.
Driving range was surprisingly nice.
Concessions are great. You can get a &2 hot dog, &2 can of Goose 312. $3 Lite. $5 draft of an Evil Horse draft beer.
Friendly staff.
Had a bev cart out.
Some unique holes.
Stay in the fairway and you can score.
Fairways and greens.
Definitely recommend TUCKAWAY at this time.
