Fall Golf

I knew the greens had been punched so it was challenging putting. Even though it is October I feel like some of the leaves could have been cleared out. You couldn’t use a driver on the range which was a little inconvenient. All in all for the middle of October the course was in good shape.

Food postround was Excellent!

Course is in decent shape. Greens are running fair and smooth. Fairways are a little scruffy, but it's almost October. There were a few deer paw prints in the bunkers making it interesting getting out of the sand. Food at "The Lawn" was the highlight of the day. The food was upscale restaurant quality. Pebble beach Turkey Club sandwich and the French Dip sandwich were absolutely sublime. Bravo!

Meh

Pricy course likely bc of the neighborhood. Course is kept up well but pace of play is brutal and there’s no rangers out trying to pick up the pace. Sandwich at the turn took 15-20 min to make but it was delicious. Not very challenging, I would pass unless you have no other options.

Good value on a nice older course

The course is very nice. Mature trees but not too many to play very narrow. Overall in good condition. Fairways were green but a little more firm due to lack of rain lately. TIP: Don't play yellow balls on the first two holes as they abut the driving range & many practice balls on those holes. The greens had spike marks but were tricky fast. Appreciate they have many water stations with cold water on the corse to refill my bottles. Also, be sure to get the brat as definitely one of the best I've ever had. Only 1/2 mile off the Edens, so good access.

Good course, good folks!

Really enjoyed the day out at WGC. Course was in good shape, food was good and pace of play was decent especially considering it was a Saturday with an outing no less! The starter was friendly as was the pro shop staff. If I could make a couple of minor suggestions: a ranger would be a good addition. We didn’t have to wait much, but there was a fivesome in front of us and they could have used a nudge a few times. Also, the fairways could use some help, lots of crab grass and other weeds throughout. But those are pretty minor quibbles. I definitely we be back!

Nice Greens -

The course's greens are in good condition. However, the fairways and tees are in poor condition. The overall condition is fair at best. They have mats on the driving range and a small chipping green. The course does have a couple of bunkers on the practice range where you can hit fill shots.

Not a good value

Course isn’t in great shape. Though it seems short, all the par 4’s are long and par 3’s short. Dumb layout. Not worth the $70 at all. Having said that, The cart GPS’s are great, the beverage cart came around three times per 9 for us on a busy day which is incredible and the food at the turn was really good for a golf course.
