Decent

Good local place. However don't pay full price for one reason: major renovation on hole 17 and 18 knocking those two yardage down to nearly half. A problem? Not a major one, but why pay full price to not use the full course? Nowhere is this mentioned, and may be the reason the course was so empty.

Okay if you book for under $40

We played this course, and the greens were awful, not up to par for the north shore, still airated when other courses in the area weren’t anymore. Also they had construction on holes 17 & 18. If you can book it for $40 on a hot deal with a cart, it isn’t that bad. But otherwise there a better courses for your money

Cold weather
Used cart

Setup of corse

To many parallel fairways and driving range balls interfered with at least 4 holes. Also before making tee time they should advise that the course in under construction.

Really nice course

I booked my tee time at 9:30a, but arrived earlier. Lucky for me It wasn’t busy and the staff member was nice enough to allow me to start without delay.

The course was in beautiful shape, only confusing part was some temporary construction on 17 and 18 that wasn’t disclosed at the start.

Otherwise really nice course, was nice to play at a quick pace.

Perfect weather
Walked

Holes 17 and 18 are Under Construction-not playable

No mention of this anywhere. No chance I pay $50 to golf in march, midweek on a course missing nearly 10% of it's holes....and the final 2 at that. I would like a refund but golfnow makes it really hard to contact them so I will air it out in the review portion of their website that is easily navigated to. Thanks

Early Spring

Played an early morning round early April. Course is expectedly still in need of more rain and maintenance this early in the season. 17th and 18th are Par 3s now due to construction but overall nice public course with good food.

2 holes are shortened and under constriction

No mention of this anywhere and the price doesn't reflect a course missing the final 10% of golf holes. 17 and 18 both unplayable.

Beginner friendly

I started playing golf this year and I got my best score at this course. If you want to play golf without stress of hitting long shots, this is the place to go.
