Hidden Gem

Course is in great shape. Greens were a little slow due to rain the previous day. Great course, challenging and very fun to play. Awesome value I would highly recommend playing here if you can. Will definitely be back. Drove 2 hours to play here so that should speak volumes about the golf!

Close this course

Shaggy, overgrown tees with bare dirt spots everywhere. Weeds in all the bunkers. No grass on the collars. Cart paths are bone breaking. I used rewards, so I only paid $6. Wouldn't have paid any more.

Don’t do it, not worth it.

Course is in horrible shape. Grass not cut & greens have fungus. It’s not worth playing even if it was free golf.

Stop complaining

Anyone that leaves a review saying the course is a mess needs to find a full-time job. The course is beautiful there is hardly any staff there, you go on the website and it says it’s co owned with Crestview but yet Crestview gets the better amenities, and social media all over…. I’ll stick with the under dog and golf with my brother again there anytime….. now the building and pool that’s another story and has nothing to do with the greens someone start complaining about that…. I’m not a member don’t intend to be … these members need to fight for the club house not the greens which are fine… most rain ever this summer by the way people !!!

Sad

You enter a beat up parking lot with a red shed as a "pro shop" and it doesn't get much better from there. You step up to the first tee and will have a difficult time even sticking a tee into the ground as it's a bunch of hard dirt and crab grass. There is crab grass all over the greens, collars, and more. The bunkers have grass growing in them. The greenside rough on the par 3 17th is about 9 inches tall. There is no clubhouse since a pair of fires a few years back. The course has been abandoned and I wouldn't recommend playing there.

Tee Boxes need lots of work

I totally get that wet conditions are unavoidable, but the tee boxes almost had no grass on them and the grass that was there was crab grass. Greens were really beat up as well. Layout is actually nice, if someone put some $$$ into the course it could be really nice.

Abandoned

Course was bought 5 years ago by the group that owns Crestview. I thought they would make improvements, but instead have abandoned the property.

Needs a ton of work

Me and a friend had never played here before and constantly see it on Golf Now and decided to play it for a hot deal rate of $32. The worst $32 I've spent in a while. Course conditions were terrible. The fairways looked like a bad rough at most other courses and it was hard to tell the difference between the greens and bunkers, both were liking playing off of pavement. Hopefully the condos or housing development the owners are waiting to build will be a better use of the land.

NOT worth what paid

NOT worth what I paid. WET (other courses have dried); 2 holes closed; Tees worse than rough; trees and debris all over; no signs.
Even after dries, only worth about 1/3 of what I paid.
TeeOff should not have this course on their site.

Kyle

The tee boxes are like the rough. They told me holes 12 and 13 where closed. So I said okay can we play 2 other par 4s twice then? And I got an attitude about it. Looks like 20 years ago this was a nice place. But apparently the clubhouse caught on fire 2 times is what the 18 year old college greenskeeper told me. So the club house is 20x10 shed. Broken down pool in the front filled with sludge and empty beer cans. Beat up greens. Fallen trees that have been sitting for years clearly...and they are all over the course. No landscaping kept up with. Everything overgrown. Spring and fall cleanups havent been done in years. Literally looks like ab abondined place at times and someone just bought it and opened it. They also charge a ridiculous amount for the shape there course is in. They charge a normal amount and this place is comparable to a dog track or cow pasture. They charge the same rates as nice courses and this place is absolute trash. I dont know how anyone could possibly play there twice. I saw it on this site and booked it and would never ever play there again. And I think most people play there on accident like me. Sand traps are literally all rocks. All tiny rocks. No sand. The 18 year old greenakeeper was mowing down the rough on the tee box on a par 3. I hit my shot in the sand. The employee even said I wouldnt swing my clubs in that stuff. They had us fill in a bunch of traps this morning and they say its sand but it is gr outti under rock and small rocks. Literally no sand. You can walk on it without making a footprint. The place is ridiculously over priced for the quality of play. I would maybe return if I could play 18 with a cart for say $15. Worst course I have ever seen in my life.
