Rough

This could be a really nice track if the conditioning was brought up to par. Too many chewed up fairways and bad spots on greens. I work at a local course and understand that just a little work could make a big difference here.

Only if you can get a good deal...

The off course amenities and staff here are very good. Unfortunately, where it really matters (course conditions and pace), this course suffers. The greens are overall pretty decent. The fairways and tee boxes were a very different story. The pace was also VERY slow. Yes, we were there on a Sunday, but there should not be multiple groups of foursomes backed up on every single hole, IMO. They would do well to space out weekend tee times a bit more, or get a ranger out once in awhile, to keep pace up (there was only a starter). The course is pretty challenging on the water holes, and pretty easy on everything else, but water comes into play a lot here. I would come back during the week, when (I heard) the course is not as busy, if I can get a good hot deal. On the weekends and/or for full price, I will stay away.

Needs some TLC

Shows some wear. Recent flooding is part of it, but bridges are in poor shape, almost look dangerous.

The Creek

Very challenging course including the par 3’s. Nice course I just wish the fairway grass was in better shape and more time and money was spent on upkeep. Has the potential to be a much better course.

Not Like it used to be

I played her every week about 15 years ago.
My how time Flys.
It is not in the best shape these days.
Some of the tee boxes are dreadful.
some Fairways are cut too high and loaded with weeds and dirt areas, Greens are under repairs,
The staff however are very pleasant and accommodating. It was great for the golf now app price of $22.00. I enjoyed playing here again and will return if my golf buddies want to go here but it's not my first choice.

Turkey Creek

Course was rough and not very well maintained. Sand traps were in very poor shape.
