Easy to Play

New carts were a plus! Course was in really good shape but cart paths could use some work. Also, the field nest to the course entrance used to me kept mowed and was a great place to practice hitting . Would like to see the practice of keeping the lot mowed continued.

Greens

I know the course gets a lot of play and the staff is short but greens are just too slow.

Doing their best with what they have available to them

The greens were a combination of fast and slow enough to make every putt a guess. The greens were uniformly rock hard, making holding the green virtually impossible. The tee boxes were also rock-hard clay covered by some grass. The cart paths are even worse than you could imagine from all of the comments about them.
The staff was super friendly, but the course condition was too rough to make the round enjoyable.

You need to fix golf cart paths. You need to do a better job with bathroom facilities. You must have a liquor license but don’t sell liquor! I know this management company can do better they run Compass Point. I know it’s only been a few months but I know the company can do better. Please try!

Nice course, good condition, cart paths are rough

Overall the course is in very nice condition and well kept. Green roll nicely and are a good speed. The cart paths are very rough, have to go slow and be careful if you don't want to jar your back. Other than that, nice course for the money.

The fairways and greens were good; however, I must say that the cart paths are in terrible condition. You could hurt your back riding on those cart paths. It made playing the course less rewarding. I would recommend the course, but with the caveat concerning the cart paths.

Slow play

New rangers on the course. Four hours and 45 minutes is too long . The group in front of us had two holes open and never invited us to play through. They need a lesson in course etiquette
