Poor condition

This course used to be ok, but this year dandelions is everywhere. All the greens are beated up and very slow. They need to catch up with the greens and do something about it.. Dandelions is all over the T box's also. Worse course i played this year. Not worth my 30 bucks.

They gave up

Course is in such bad shape. Wouldn’t be surprised if one senior citizen was responsible for all upkeep.

18 holes

Fairways where fair, ROUGH WAS LONG, IF YOU MISSED THE FAIRWAY YOU LOST YOUR BALL. Bunker's, There were Bunkers but no sand. Dirt and plenty of weeds. They should fill them in if they don't want to maintain them. Greens where fair... This course needs a lot of work. Too bad it could have been a winner!!!!!

Used to be great. They‘ve let it go.

First photo is a “fairway” (hole 5)

Second is a tee box (hole 9)

Played all 18; the back 9 wasn’t much better. The greens were the slowest I think I’ve ever played on and all head dead, bumpy sections.

Not much excitement. Poor conditions

Course has a couple holes with doglegs, but the rest are straight. If that was my only complaint, that'd be fine. However, the conditions of the course were awful. Overgrown bunkers that haven't been weeded all year, tees completely overgrown, greens burnt and very bumpy. Got this on a hot deal and wouldn't even do that again.

Had a few slow groups that everyone jumped, missing a couple holes. No ranger. Nobody keeping pace. I'd go again if it was free or paid for, but that's it. Picture is of the 5th green, but every one looked like this.

What happened?

They have officially given up. The course is no longer taken care of, yet they charge for a decent course in the area. Check the app for way better deals than this place right now. Used to be a fun course for all kinds of golfers.

Terrible Condition

They need to start pumping money back into the course or just give up. Tee's, farirways, and greens all in terrible condition. Picture is my ball in #12 fairway. Might as well close for the season and start over.

Course should be closed until fixed up

do not under any circumstances play here until they decide to actually use water on fairways and actually mow and fix their infected and destroyed greens.
Played August 9 2020 and tee boxes in terrible shape,fairways(basically there are no fairways, all destroyed patches of rough acting as fairway) and greens are unplayable
Course tells you when you show up. They have no right to be open and golf now/ tee off should remove from listing.

Suns Out

Have not played this course in two years. Loved playing it on the past, glad to see it is on Golfnow again. Was a hot day and a dry course. Greens were particularly slow which took some time to adjust to. Played from the tips and was a good day to get stretched out. No birdies today . Looking forward to playing this course again.

This course is begging for someone to care about it.

The owners don’t care about this course at all. Everything from the greens to the club house is run down and beaten up. This course needs some real TLC. it’s not just this year That it’s like this it’s every year. It gets worse and worse and the owners care less and less. Someone please help this course.

Good Layout - Little Maitenence

Support the course, but man it’s rough. Wish there wasn’t dead patches or diseases on greens. Not sure why there is no weed pulling or bunker maintenance.

Do not Recommend

The course is in terrible shape. Greens, Tee Boxes, Bunkers, Fairways. Something must be going on with this course. Played it in the past and enjoyed it. Not sure what happened?

Course is in disrepair

I remember playing this course multiple times a year back when I was younger. Course was in great shape then. Came say the same now. Still get the nostalgia, but the course is in the worst shape of and course I've played in recent memory. Teeboxes were cut, but not cared for. Crabgrass, dead patches, and general lack of care. Fairways and rough were the same length (too long for fairway, but too short for rough). Greens were cut to the length of fairways and many had dead patches all over making putting a nightmare. You had to turn your shoulders on 20 ft putts to get it there. Overall, I cannot stress show little I recommend the course. Sad because I was excited to play a course from my early golf years.
