Weekday Golf

Whispering Willows is a very nice course that gets a lot of play. The course layout is fair for the average golfer, but your pace of play might be a little slower than what you are use to. Would definitely recommend this course as a choice and the food in the clubhouse after is excellent.

Poor condition

They have signs everywhere telling golfers what to do,instead they should be spending their money on fixing the course. Many bare spots, dirt holes and just poor ground maintenance. Carts are also so controlled you can barely get off the cart path. There are many other courses in better shape, and less controlling.

Solid Muni

I enjoyed my walk at the solid Muni and found a course with a fun routing that maximized the land and had many fun golf holes.

Golf carts

They have the golf carts configured so constrained you really can’t get off the cart path. The course needs a lot of maintenance. Never saw the cart person , but the ranger was out. Not worth the money

Perfect weather
Used cart

This course is in great shape for this time of year.

I came out to shoot 9 holes with my brother-in-law in the afternoon. Temp. was 65 and sunny. Beautiful day out. The course was in great shape. Cart path only, which helped out the fairways alot. Greens were in excellent shape along with the tee boxes. Would recommend everyone to come out and shoot a round at this course. Friendly staff and excellent food was available at the tin cup restaurant at the course. I give this course 5 stars.
