Has Potential, But The Greens And Tees Need Work

I came here on a Monday afternoon after school just trying to find a place where I could play a quick round before dark. I knew this was a pretty short course and knew I could get done fast so I figured why not try it. I wanted to walk but apparently at this course they don’t allow it. I thought that was kind of weird, but they still only charged me 25 dollars. I probably wouldn’t have played the course for any more than that though. I liked a few of the holes and thought them to be very challenging, such as #2, a big dogleg that wraps around a pond and the condos, #5 that you must put your tee shot on the left side of the fairway to have any chance of hitting the green, #6, a long, thin par 5 that runs alongside the Clinton river, and #14, a long par 3 with water in front and left of the green. Those holes I liked and found to be a fun challenge. However, the same thing can’t be said for the rest of them. I think a very lazy design where you just place a tee, place a green, trees on both sides and a straight line. That’s 3/4 of this golf course and I found that to be boring. However, the biggest disappointment were the greens. They were relatively slow and the edges of most of them were patchy and missing grass. Some of the tee boxes were wet and muddy, and some were bone dry where I could barely get the tee in the ground. Overall, not the best, but I’ve seen worse.

Horrible

Slow play. Holes were on top of each other. Like shoving 10 lbs of s#$% in a 5lb bag. Save your money and go elsewhere.

Slow Play

Usually no problems at this course. Pro shop attendant, a young gentleman had 2 foursome of elderly ladies tee off after each other. Was not allowed to start on back 9 but had to follow these two groups through 9 holes. Took 2 1/2 hours to play 9 holes with 2-3 groups waiting to tee off on every hole. Even though I paid for 18 holes, I didn’t have time or patience for another 2 1/2 hour back nine.

Bad circumstances

At the club house i was told they had a big outting that afternoon and that the grounds crew would be out there. Even tho they were working on the course still when i tee'd off on my early round, they were very considerate of not holding me up and were all around great at not being an inconvenience to me. The staff were very friendly as i played through them working on multiple holes. Thanks for the fun round!
