Great Staff, Great Course

This was my first time playing this course. It was great. Don't let the shorter length fool you. It isn't crazy hard, but it is a nice challenge. For so late in the season with so much rain this year the course was in really good shape. The greens rolled true and were fast, but not unjustly so. There are a variety of challenges that vary from hole to hole. so you don't get the feel that everything is closed in by trees, or that water is the same old hazard on every other hole. The staff was polite, and helpful. I will definitely be adding this course to my list for next year.

Two and half hours for 8 holes

Left after 8 holes 2 hours and 30 minutes waited 10-15 mins before every shot asked a employee if I could go ahead he said it was the same on every hole. Way overbooked course was just money grabbing.

Needs rain

The fairways are rock hard. The grass and weeds are green but man the ground is hard. Maybe needs a little water.

Needs Improvement

It's a good course for the money but today the course was is rough shape. A lot of tee boxes were mostly dirt, fairways were hard and a lot of them have huge dirt spots. The greens weren't in the best of shape either. Quite a few were very brown and had little grass on them. I don't know if the grounds keeper is not doing his job or if it was flood damage, or something else. Also the huge trees around some of the greens dropping leaves everywhere on the green is not desirable for putting. Makes it difficult to read a green when it's covered in leaves.

Water

The course suffered from standing water with all the rain, then dried out to a parched course in spots. The fairways were rock hard in many places. The greens, tho firm, were in good shape. Tee boxes need attention. I got a deal so I was just glad to be out playing.
