Fun but more then the booking from the site

It was fun but, after using Golfnow to book the round and the email saying one price it was a different price at the course. It ended up costing more for the round then what it was supposed to be.

Wayward shots are penalized on every hole.

This is not a long golf course so the bombers have no advantage over the shot makers. Hookers and slicers will find the trees on nearly every hole. Straight hitters will dominate. The greens are tiny and in excellent condition and roll true. It's a great course but expect to spend some time hunting for your ball!

Value for the $$ and time.

Greens were good. Tee boxes were okay. Fairways were rough. Some fairways seemed to be trimmed at different lengths. Challenging and tight fairways. Delightful to work on keeping the ball straight.

Leaf

Our cart died after 4 holes, slow play from hole one. I can definitely see why it was $14. I lost at least a half dozen balls in the fairway under piles of leaves. Fairways were hard as concrete. Greens weren't too bad. Overall grade D

Poor Condition

The greens had been aerated, but even if they hadn’t been their condition looked poor. The tee boxes and fairways were not in good condition either. One of the most annoying things was that multiple fairways have become so narrowed by overgrown overhanging tree limbs that you only had 20-30 yard wide gaps to hit through. With the course having been built in 1996, those holes looked like what your home shrubbery would look like if you hadn’t trim them for 24 years. Therefore, I have no idea how this course has gotten an 88.9 positive review rating. So for a better value and much higher quality course, just go down the road and play the excellent nearby Pilgrim’s Run course.

Nice course for the price

Booked a 2 some with cart for $48. Couldn’t beat the price. Course was nice and challenging, fairways were tight which made the course challenging. A few of the tee boxes were in not the best of shape. Greens were fast and hard. Overall a very fun and nice course, we will most defiantly play again when we are in town.

Okay course

The greens need work the fairways were nice to holes the fairways were terrible and six or seven holes the tea boxes were terrible. Overall the price was OK but I’d give it a three star instead of a four-star as golf now has it down as a four-star

Front 9

Played the front nine again. The course is in good shape, greens do need a bit of attention but good otherwise. This day was more about pace of play. The front seemed a little jammed up. Maybe some of us cold have been directed to start on the back. Overall, for my son’s first time, was fun. Better yet, he’s excited to go again.
