Well maintained

Excellent maintenance for a heavily played course. Appreciate being sent off the baxk 9 as a single to avoid crowing on the first tee.

A good day.

Teed off behind a 4some that had played very little golf. Drove around them after 4th hole & rest of pace was average. Course was in good condition so overall a good day.

walking only

This course does NOT have cart paths, and it does NOT drain well. Even though it was a perfect day, we had to walk through standing water on almost every hole.

Found a deal for $19 and played....

I couldn’t beat the price so I played it. My friends and I had banned this course this summer because the guy in the pro shop is in the wrong profession. He’s generally rude and unpleasant almost every time you go in.

The fairways and greens are watered and in decent shape. I would go back if I found another deal under 20 bucks. I’ll put up with the guy who runs the pro shop at that price..
