The worst.

The absolute worst course I have ever played on. I wouldn't pay $10 to play a round here. By far the worst greens I've ever played.

Really good for the price after 3:00

I’m not going to lie and say this is a super amazing course, but a lot of the previous reviews have been unfair, in my opinion. Also, I should note that I’m not sure if booking through the GolfNow app works, some reviews have mentioned issues with booking through the app. I just pay in person.

I first played this course in 2019, and the course wasn’t in the best of shape. It was honestly in pretty rough condition. However, I decided to give it another go this past week, and I went back to even play it again yesterday. I was surprised to see that the course had gotten better since I last played it in 2019, and it was quite an enjoyable experience both times.

For the price, the course is in more than acceptable condition. The greens are good enough to putt on. They’re cut short enough, they’re just a bit bumpy from patches of what I would assume was a fungus problem that the greens haven’t quite recovered from yet, but they’re in acceptable condition.

The course isn’t precisely manicured or anything, but everything is in good enough condition and is by no means unplayable. Fairways are a bit longer than usual, but not quite the length of rough. There’s not a huge difference between fairway and rough and this course is quite forgiving in terms of missing to the left or right, EXCEPT - the greens are small. That’s the reason I love playing this course. To hit GIR, you have to be precise with your irons and wedges. It may not be a super long course, but it’s fun to play and it definitely has some holes that will test your golfing ability.

This course is worth a play, especially after 3:00. The rate gets cheaper ($25 on weekends, $20 on weekdays) and the course usually isn’t super busy either. This is a great place to play a nice, relaxed round. It’s easy enough for a beginner golfer to chase the little white ball around but the greens provide a challenge for the better golfer. Definitely an underrated course, in my opinion

Good basic golf

It's nothing special, but decent value. I wish they would cut the fairways shorter.

Good course, bad booking

Booked this course on golfnow, prepaid for everybody, got to the course, and apparently can’t use the app to book for this course. The clubhouse said to get a refund through golfnow and currently trying to do so but in trying to contact golfnow, there is not much assistance to be found. Still trying to figure out a way to contact them. I’ve tried emailing and calling but calling only tells me to go back to the website. Good course but not a fun booking experience.

All around disappointment!

First and foremost, this course does not accept golfnow reservations even though golfnow continues to sell them. I had to pay at the course and there was a little trouble trying to get my money back from golfnow but they did eventually refund my money. The course was an absolute disgrace to play on. Nothing was mowed, not even the greens. I can’t believe people pay to play there. It cost us $35/ea to play and I would not pay $5 to play there again!! Lesson learned. Steer clear of this course if you enjoy playing golf because the course conditions are worse than bad!

Staff and clientele rude

Perfect day for golf ruined by other golfers and Marshall unwilling to police the course. You will have a very uncomfortable 4.5 hours playing this course.

Not bad but they need to make redo each map

The maps at the tee boxes are either missing or eligible. The course itself is flat but pretty open. Not a bad experience at all, especially the par 3 on the back 9 that forces you to play above the small gap in the trees.

Small greens make this course a challenge

Don't look at the yardage of the course. It seems short, but the greens are what makes this course. They are small, but they are in great condition and roll true and fast.
