very upset

have been plying all year I really like the course very good condition and a great 9 hole close to work I have been purchasing thru golf now quite a few times .. when I went to the app and I pay the very convenient. however I paid for carts and paid extra. when I got there carts were not available so we had to walk. they offered us a pull cart that didn't even work . I would have brought my own or a carry bag if I had known? Any way I was offered a $5 discount which I was, to be honest insulted? I will mull it over the winter , I will probably not use the app again . I was forced to pay and I was not given the cost of carts back they had my money and I could not get it back please cancel my subscription

Bang for your Buck

Great 9 hole. Greens and fairways well maintained. Long holes with forgiving fairways.

Great local option

Late October Tuesday, 9:40 t time.. weather was nice.. course was in great shape. Unrushed, great pace.. just have to keep your head up as opposite fairways can be interesting with all us hackers out there...I found myself dodging bright green balls coming off a next hole slicer...
Covid aware facility, .. quick in and out at the pro shop.. no waiting.. No amenities to comment about.

3 indivual walkers, and we never had to wait

Greens and bunkers were in good condition. I ended up on some dry spots along some holes, but overall great value. Holes were all pretty straight.

Fun time playing

Played today (labor day) for our first time and from the first sign we could tell this place was nuts, which is understandable seeing it was a holiday and all. Staff was very nice and welcoming and got us all set up with another two some. We got off a little late, but all and all we had a really great time with the two some we got paired up with. Pace of play was definitely slow but what can you expect when the course is sold out. We had a great time and will be back. Oh, and conditions were great!!

Worst round of golf ever! Couldn’t finish

First off, my tee time started 15 minutes late. Whatever. But then on every single hole there was a minimum of 2 groups waiting on the tee! Unbearable. No rangers, no enforcement of pace of play. Quite ridiculous. Don’t waste your day. I played 3 holes in a. Hour and a half before I left

Classic Run of the Mill Course

Course was in decent shape, a few rough patches here and there but nothing terrible. The greens were well maintained. Nice casual course.
