How to run a tee sheet

Arrive at course expecting a frost delay was told by Randy that my time is gone due to frost. So a frost delay isn’t a delay it’s frost elimination? What kind of backwards crap is that? If that how you are going to run a tee sheet like this then at least call me to tell me this instead of wasting my time. You guys absolutely failed at generating the most revenue which is the overall point correct? Brian I would love to hear to your response to this madness. This review is strictly based on the customer service I received by Randy.. Will never waste my time or anyone else’s on this place no matter the “value”.

Very good conditions despite the rain. Fairways and rough were excellent. Greens rolled well but definitely on the slower side. Sub 4 hour round. Front is short but a lot of fun - except for the monster par 3 3rd. Back is totally different and very challenging, last 3 holes are outstanding

Course is in good shape.

We got there early, very busy. Lots of confusion from starter, told us they were behind. Went to practice green, go yelled at for taking cart, we got called to first tee, they had another 3 groups before us, like I said very confusing.
OK, the course is good, best condition I have seen in a long time, challenging holes force you to make blind shots. Some tough lies, hilly, raised greens.
It was a slow round as it was busy and golfers were not ready to play. I would play again hopefully with better treatment.

Course is in very good condition from tee boxes to fairways to greens. Pace of play was reasonable. Some of the par 3 are long and challenging but the greens are very true and roll nicely. Overall an enjoyable day of golf.

Course layout

I’m a novice golfer and don’t play frequently but this course great for average player. Front nine very nice and open , back nine much more challenging but if you can keep it near the fairways, you will have great results. All the greens in fantastic condition.

Pleasantly surprised

I drove 75+ minutes to get here, initially I saw the hot deal listed at 25, and when I checked back it jumped to 43. It was still worth the money and I learned my lesson about letting a deal like that sit. Very forgiving course, par 5s are easy to score and there are plenty of holes you can use your driver on. Some very nice views on this course, hilly, but very fun to play.

Slippery When Wet

A hidden gem, greens and fairways always well kept but its been a wet spring. Check the Facebook page to see if carts are allowed, day to day. Got stuck coming off the 9th, watched a 360 on the 17th when they tried to stop, so be careful on slopes if it is wet. Driving range and practice green across street with car parking but no carts allowed.
