Under Renovation

I used to be a member and played the course for the first time in 10 years. The place is undergoing a renovation so don't expect a lot in the short term. There's no real restaurant and no real pro shop shop right now. Everything's a mess. As far as the course goes, the greens were fine, the fairways were acceptable but the bunkers were a disaster. They were mostly full of mud except for the two on number nine that can be seen from the road. There was pretty white sand in those. I don't I'll go back until the renovation's complete.

First time at National, won't be the last

Myself and two other buddies played this course the first time after finding it on GolfNow and we'll definitely be back.

The course and the clubhouse is going through a renovation but we were still able to have a great time and played some fun golf.

This course has some holes that provide a challenge but also some holes that help you regain some confidence. There's a par 3 on the back nine that goes from hill to hill that allows you and some friends to have some fun with it. The water on the course really allows you to test your power. Some of the holes are really open and some are very narrow so really provides you an opportunity to shape your shots or just play your power game. The course is going through a renovation but you barely notice it as you go.

The clubhouse, also going through a renovation, looks like its going to be super nice when it's done. The renovations also didn't stop us from enjoying a snack at the turn or a few drinks at the bar.

The staff from the pro shop to the clubhouse were all super nice and friendly and helped guide us around a place we never been. The GM even took a few minutes of his time to check in on us to see how we were enjoying the day.

This course is definitely for anyone that wants a causal round or wants to go out and challenge themselves. You can't beat the price with everything that's included, we'll definitely be back.

Great Experience

This is a hidden gem! With the ongoing renovations you can really start to see things come full circle. The greens were in great shape, fairways nice and green, and all bunkers with fresh sand. The General Manager, Gene Orrico, was more than accommodating and took the time after our round to listen to our feedback. Him and his team are doing amazing things here and I cannot wait to go back and see other improvements. Thanks for the hospitality, Gene and keep up the great work - we will be back!

Course is in great shape after being recently renovated. Great layout with challenging tees that make you have to use every club in the bag. Super friendly staff and the GM wants to make sure everyone on the course has a fantastic time. Will definitely be returning soon.

Not a full Experience

Fair forgiving course with a nice albeit small range.

Please note that the club is under renovations and the greens have just been aerated so I don’t feel that we had a true course experience.

However, having said that, the staff were lovely. The course is fairly forgiving and would be beautiful when in good condition. The homes are very close to the tee boxes and fairs, so if you are not very accurate, you may be looking for balls in someone’s yard.

Course and facility need need some TLC

The course condition was fair...lots of hazards on the course due to construction and poor maintenance. Otherwise, the course was ours...didn't see anyone in front or behind us and 2 of us finished the round in 3 hours and 40 minutes. The greens were a nightmare...they had been aerated recently and the greens were almost ribbed...so the ball hopped as it rolled making it completely unpredictable.

Don’t Go!

Went there to find out 10 of 18 holes were closed. Manager(?), was very unprofessional and could understand that I though this was unacceptable. During a heated conversation, he said something like—this why I don’t let GolfNow customers.

Bad Value

Took advantage of a Golf Now special offer to try this private club for $68. Unfortunately it was not disclosed that the back 9 was closed for repairs. The course was in very poor condition greens were being aerated and had concentric circles of sand on them. The clubhouse itself was under a major renovation. Might be worth it if the course was in perfect condition. Very disappointing.

At a loss for words

I’m not sure if this course is undergoing renovations, or going out of business, but the $75 paid was about $50 too much. Course layout sucks. The pro shop looks like a third world country. Men’s and women’s bathrooms were 2 stalls right next to each other. Only good thing that I can say was that staff was nice, and they make a awesome club sandwich. Only reason I would go back would be for the club sandwich, not to play, sandwich alone.
