Short, sloppy and not worth more than $10

Played this for the first time today, and it will certainly be the last. It rained a few days ago, but you’d think we got 20 inches overnight with the AWFUL condition this course was in. There were puddles on practically every hole. Holes 6,7,8,9 are par 4’s and they have about 20 large puddles scattered throughout the fairway, it makes the holes almost unplayable. Grass is long and clearly doesn’t see much maintenance, there are no cart paths and you have to navigate through giant mud patches while trying to navigate. Greens were in decent condition, that was the only upside. Avoid this course, it’s not worth the time or money.

Soggy

Overall, I would say the course is ok. The course was soggy in the fairways.

First time

First time playing this course. Paid for 18 ended up quitting after 9. The fairways were muddy and no path for carts. Better off walking. It rained the night before so I understand the wet condition, the kicker is half of the par 3 greens are small and dome shaped. I don’t mind challenging holes but this is over doing it in my opinion. I will say the check in was seamless and the staff was very professional.

Very over priced for how poor the conditions were. Felt like playing in a playground

Fun track, slightly over priced

Played 9 holes, sunday at noon in early May. First off the greens were a lot better than I was expecting. They were in great condition free of ball marks and dead spots. Greenside rough was well kept making chipping fun and poor lies not taking away from the experience. Since its a par 3 on most holes fairways didn’t really matter, although on a few holes there were some deadspots. I played 9 holes for $25 + golfnow fees / person which felt like a few bucks too expensive but otherwise this was a fun track and s great place to work on irons out of the tee box.

Course management

Staff is great during this tough time. Gary in the pro shop was very helpful and would be a shame to lose his expertise on managing this course.

Big Irons

Great sea side long executive course. Mostly a par 3 with a couple challenging par 4's sprinkled in. will probably play irons most of the day with maybe a hybrid club on a few holes. If you are in the city and want to play a quick 9 around lunch this course is a hidden gem for sure.
