Pioneer

The course was in very good shape and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. We got behind inconsiderate slow playing groups on both 9's which made the pace of play very slow. 5 1/2 hours to play the round.

Great course

In years past the course may not have been in as good shape and for the cost, we rarely golfed there. We have been here a couple of times this year and the improvements are very noticeable!!! Beautifully cared for these days!!!

Return

Not having played Pioneer in quite some time, the greens and traps looked really good. The fairways were in good shape also. The cart paths could use an upgrade but I understand the cost factor .

They have done a very good job in cleaning up the rough areas along the fairways where you can find your ball if you miss the fairway. Has some difficult holes and some easy ones. Fun course to play.
