Course in bad shape

I played this course for the second time first was about 5 years ago. Layout still good and tough but was course conditions were disappointing. Several fairways had large significant brown areas enough so that I called the pro shop when we got to the 3rd hole. I was told that the conditions were caused by excessive rain. My first thought was that management was aware of the conditions but still charged the full rate of $105. I left a message for the manage and not surprisingly have not had the courtesy of a response. No mention of the poor condition of the driving range and chipping area. I live in Memphis and even through almost a month of no rain and 100 plus degree heat and humidity courses maintained fairways that still had grass and were in good condition at a third to half of this courses rate.

pythium strikes again

A picturesque and interesting layout. Course is not well maintained. Pythium rot in several fairways. Greens are nice, a bit fuzzy and slower than expected .Lots of unrepaired divots, and many of the tees are hacked up. I would have expected better value from a course managed by Kemper. We only saw a couple of other groups on the day we played. The word must be out that it is extremely overpriced at $80. It is still steep for seniors at $45. I would play it again, but not for $80.

A challenging layout

A nice track, the front is definitely harder than the back, but a nice layout all around.

We will return to play it again

Don’t play here

Fairways had dead spot all over. You’re better off hitting out of the roughy. Food was not good either. Not worth the money to play here

Challenging layout. Fairways need work

Overall it was a very challenging course. Extremely narrow. The fairways need some attention. Numerous dirt patches and uneven areas. Prepare to lose some balls.
If you are just off the fairway it rolls into very tall marshy type areas where it is almost impossible to find your ball. Once you reach the greens you will find even more of a challenge as the many undulations and slopes are prevalent on all 18 holes. Not worth the $105 Green fee. Probably worth $75 maximum which you can find on a hot deal.
