Beautiful course

I have nothing but positives, great course, with only one negative…gotta get some new range balls. Those things are 100 years old. If you’re gonna charge as much as you do, gotta have range balls that are a year or two old.

Good experience

The course was in good shape and it’s a good layout. I have two issues which prevented me from giving 5 stars. The first is they have a cart availability issue. You literally had to wait until your tee time when a group finishing on 18 gave you their cart. As an example this caused a problem later because the containers with sand to fill divots were completely empty due to a lack of time to refill them. I was told by my playing partner this has been an ongoing issue for the past couple of years. Second, they have nicely contoured traps but are in need of more sand. You shouldn’t be hitting out of a thin layer of sand (borderline dirt) in a green side bunker. This is a great course layout but for the money those are two issues that should be fixed.

One of the nicest public courses in the state

For the price my expectations were high. This place delivered. Beautiful bunkering, great variety of holes, and the boxes/fairways/greens were perfect. Lots of penalty areas and chest high grass if you hit some foul balls, so a challenging course for sure. Their regular green fees are a bit overpriced imo, but I’ll be back if I can get another hot deal.

Great shape for early Spring, but bar/restaurant shut down too early

Course was in nice shape for early April. Pace of play was average to low average. This course would benefit from a starter and perhaps a course range to help move pace of play along. Range balls included in the round is excellent, more courses should do that.

Rate was a great value for twilight early Spring golf. However the course isnt worth the full freight rate of $100-$130. Would recommend playing twilight or off peak or hot deals.

Also a couple of times I've played the bar and restaurant closed down at 5pm. This was even on the Fri and Sat of the Masters. This is a little rough if you tee off about 3p so bring your own snacks and get plenty of beer before your round if that is your thing just in case.

Worth the visit.

Whilst our game was very much at the end of the season we enjoyed the challenge and the course. It was cold and windy making the course more challenging, the greens had been done ready for winter so were not at their best but with subtle borrows still ran at a fair pace. The fairways and Tee boxes showed how much the course had been played but it did not detract from the overall experience. Would I come back. Without a doubt. As a golfer from the UK used to small greens and a parkland layout, this course gave both, The front 9 open but with its own hazards and the back 9 more wooded. Some stunning visually challenging holes made for a good round. Look forward to returning in the summer.
