A nice course for a relaxed round of golf.
I paid for 3 rounds of golf but one of our group got sick and did not play. The man in the Pro Shop said I should contact Golf Now about this but I have been unable to reach you.
Would you please have someone from Golf Now contact me about this. Thank you.

Too much poop

I didn’t think the course was in good shape, fair at best. There is also a Canada goose problem with poop all over the place. I guess they were trying to scare some of them away by firing off some loud blasts. Very disturbing when you are in the middle of a shot. Pace of play was slow - waiting on every shot. There was also no starter at the 1st tee. When I checked in at the pro shop I was giver a receipt and a cart key No indication where to go for the carts, 1st tee, nothing. This was our 1st and last time at this course.

Great bang for your buck

Given the time of year, course conditions were phenomenal. Some of the tee boxes were a little run down but considering the time of year they were in overall good condition and what issues existed were not bad enough to warrant docking points. Unfortunately, we had a later tee time so while the weather was great and there weren't many players on the course it did mean that the snack shack was shut down by the time we finished the 9th hole. It would be great to see this open longer in the future, especially in peak season. Also, I think the course would benefit from some improved signage for different holes. There was a group ahead of us that got lost around the hole 10,11, and 12 complex which slowed everyone behind them down quite a bit. Despite these issues(and they're pretty minor tbh) I thought this was a great course and I will definitely be coming back at some point.

Butter cut

I’ve been playing here a couple few times a year for the better part of 15 years. Over that time,, the track has been maintained consistently, but the grass gets a little long on the tee boxes and the rough catches errant shots with little sympathy. Greens are smooth and roll on the slow side. To be successful here, learn how to hit a butter cut. A lot of the holes move left to right and angles to the greens are better on the right. Staff is friendly and efficient - even in the morning for those sunrise tee times.
