Good to play if you’re bad at golf

This is a good course to play if you don’t hit it long or are new to the game. Not much to challenge you with and is a good place to take my wife who just wants to go our an wack the ball around

Always fun to play here

Although this course is a bit shorter, there is enough trouble to get into.
Generally in good shape but we have had a dry period so the fairways were very hard.
Around a lot of greens there were mud puddles and tire tracks. Broken sprinklers?
Something to consider fixing.

Staff

Course is good pace of play is good. The old man in the pro shop. Needs a lesson on customer service. Bad attitude like he didn't want to be there. For a public course not too bad. Be a good place for younger players. Only way id be back if the old man is no longer there. What a BiG TIME JERK....

Rude Staff

Older gentleman harassed me for being a few minutes late. Didn’t get to play and I basically lost $30. The course wasn’t even busy that day. I love this course, but I hate when staff is overly strict
