Course needs help

Cart paths were horrible, pot holes EVERTYWHERE, fairways could have been better kept and some of the greens were in bad shape.Seemed like the course was over booked, waited on EVERY hole.

Nice day but left a birthday present in the cart

Saturday at 936 am. Cart#10. The day was great. Sunny hot. Met two nice kids that we were grouped with. Pace was a little slow but ok. Course in good shape overall. BUT left my new gift, a garmin , clipped to the cart. Left a message and called but no reply yet. Hoping the cart kids come through for me. Not the best way to remember that round.

Overpriced

Even for the weekend, based on the course itself this course is not worth $50 weekend rate. Greens were shaggy, 17th hole still does not have a green, many tee boxes were overgrown, not mowed. Disappointed.

Slow

New golfer here. And this was slow for me. No point in making a tee time since we still started almost 30 minutes after despite being here wayyyy early. Do you like 6 hour rounds? Then this course is for you. Might even be longer. I’d let you know, but I’m still waiting to play so no definite answer yet. I will not be playing here on the weekends ever again.

Entire days play

Do you enjoy spending the entire day waiting on the Tee box and Fairway? This is the place. 8 minutes between scheduled Tee times and a ranger that allows walk ons between 8 minute 4-somes. 5 hours in and still on hole 14. Don’t mind the jeans and cabbage patch on hole 17. Love putting on the fairway for a create a hole experience.

All for the quality pricing of $45. Enjoy, or don’t. They won’t care.

Great course but they need a ranger

Course is in great shape. The problem is it takes 6 hrs to golf 18 holes cause 4somes don't let you play through and there is no one directing the pace of play. So it's a good course but be prepared to be there for a while!

Looks like there are some attempts being made to help this course but, there is still a long way to go before it gets back to the way it used to be.
