Great course for the price but I would hope they clean up a few of the tee boxes on the back 9, lots of crab grass growing on them. Other then that it’s fun and not to hard

Great Course for low cost

Great fun times for low cost. Some challenging but fun holes and other basic but challenging holes. Great course for a weekend or week night get out.

3 players playing from one bag

I was paired behind 3 players that were playing from one bag of clubs. It took 2.5 hours to play 9. They were told to speed it up with little success. They were stopped after 9 holes and told to leave. Why were they allowed in the first place?
Things like this make one wonder if rules course rules are to poor to enjoy a round.
The course has some interesting holes but not sure what to expect.

Hazard golf

Course is completely blown out for construction. No parking, no club house, missing holes, slow pace. Marshall had the audacity to tell us not to drive near the green 100 yards out?! Multiple times. Won’t return until course is fixed. Give them 3 years.

beautiful course,

course was in great condition, greens were rolling really slow, pace of play was good for the front 9, back 9 had to wait on every hole, the group in front of us would just be teeing off as we were arriving to the next tee box, never let us play through
