New course design

They switched the 1st hole and made it the 9th hole and set up a practice area adjacent to the 9th hole. This is an extremely dangerous setup as golf balls from the practice area were ending up on the 9th hole fairway and bouncing off trees. I felt like I needed to have armored gear on so as not to be hit.

The greens were in great shape but some of the tee boxes were pretty bad. The 8th hole is a challenging, winding steep hole that is fun if you like something different and challenging.

Apparently. they have private memberships along with being open to the public. One private member played through without even requesting to do so, only then to hold us up on the very next hole.

The pub and club house is in bad shape. I wonder what is going on with the course. It looks like it is trouble.

Beautiful location.

Where's the DIVOT MIX????

It's a shame the course doesn't make divot mix available to golfers to apply in the fairway's and on tee boxes. In fact the new golf carts (without GPS and no cover to protect clubs during rain) don't even have a place for divot mix bottles to hang. C'mon man... free labor from golfers to keep turf conditions up to snuff. What's up wit dat?? Every tee should have a box of divot mix and every cart should have two bottles of divot mix to maintain the hacked up fairways....

better than ever

I have been playing the course for nearly 30 years and it is easily in the best shape it's ever been in. It was going south a few years ago, so a big thumbs up to the present course management for the work they have done. It's a great track. It is however on a piece of land that requires a lot of maintenance, so don't let up on what you're doing! We will be back soon.

They need a new greenskeeper!

Great layout, miserable conditions. It's sad to see one of the best public courses in the area be in such terrible condition. It's clear that the owners have decided to spend as little as possible in maintaining the course. Fairways are in tough shape, tees are beat, and greens need attention. This course is a poor substitute for what it used to be 5-10 years ago...

Great Course, Early Season Round

Really enjoyed my round. Being it is only my third season playing, and first time at the course, was definitely challenging. Early season you would have expected conditions to be rough, but they clearly take care of the place as it was in great shape, especially the greens. I took the advice of a previous reviewer and grabbed a yardage book, it helped significantly as there are some blind shots and hard to see hazards. Unless you love walking, would suggest taking a cart, the course is pretty spread out and there are hilly spots. Even this early it was open for carts driving on all holes except 11. Would totally recommend everyone to go check this place out.

early Spring conditions

Not surprisingly, the course was in very good shape for this early in the season. Greens were a tad slow but that is not unexpected.
Off the greens and fairways were a bit tough as the grass hasn't started to grow, so chipping was not easy. Had to lift ball a couple of times to get off dead, clumpy grass. This will all change as the season really gets underway.

Wish we played here before

Considering opening day, place was in great shape. Whoever takes care of the greens deserves a raise, cant believe how true they rolled. Staff was incredible and helped us out when GolfNow kinda botched the booking. Practice area and pub werent open yet, but only because it just opened for the season. Not complaining, just cant comment on it. Staff suggested Grumpys pub a mile down the road and it did not disappoint. Seriously, the greens are amazing. Tough, couple two tiered, but they were in amazing shape. I swear they covered them with tarps or something end of the season.

Only suggestions I would have is the green to tee directions and yardage. Some would chalk up to never playing there before, but the tee box yardage could be better. I would highly suggest grabbing the yardage book at pro shop. My group normally uses 18birdies app for distances and scores, but it didn’t line up with course. For instance, hole 1 on course was actually hole 2 on app, and tee boxes didnt line up from real course to app layout. Not complaining, but something worth mentioning. Place really was in great shape. If youve never played there before, some holes might be tough to navigate hence the yardage book. I absolutely smoked a 300 yard drive slight right of the fairway on the back 9 (cant remember the hole) however I didnt know there was trees/rocks/hazard. Again, not complaining, just worth knowing.

Overall I would 100% play there again, and my buddy actually got his first ace on shared green on first par 3. Breakfast Nook enroute was also a great start to the day, highly recommended.
