Fast beginner friendly course.

The courses short par 4s are made challenging by having to tee off over the water or having water along the side of the green. Five of the eighteen holes had water in play. Accuracy is at a premium because the greens are smaller. I enjoyed warming up on the driving range because the range has an island green as one of its many targets. They also have chipping and putting greens to work on your short game which is important on a shorter course. The staff was friendly and I like that I can get in a quick 9 or 18 holes. My playing time for 9 holes was 1 hour 20 minutes.

Great for Practice

Slower play as it’s a fully walking course, but it’s a good place to get practice. The greens have seen better days, but it’s playable. There’s also a mini golf course and a driving range at the complex, and it’s very family friendly.

They don't do reservations, it's first come first serve.

They don't do reservations, it's first come first serve so it's cheaper just to go to the course and pay then to do it through golf now. The course is dangerous. I was constantly ducking and was almost hit multiple times from neighboring holes. There are no defined fairways, the grass is cut the same throughout the entire course so it's difficult to know where you're headed. Signage for the course is poor and it's difficult to know where the next tee box is. For a short course, the pace of play was worse than your typical nine hole course. Don't expect grass it's all weeds. I would go somewhere else.

Great value for the money

The course is getting in better shape, most of the greens are in good condition. It’s really a fun golf experience. Where it lacks in distance it makes up for in technicality (i.e. you need to be accurate) and if you go after work you’ll have the entire course to yourself. Definitely worth the cost of the all access pass.
