Prices go up/course just seems to get worse

Decent greens and layout but the course seems to turn into more of a cow pasture every year while prices increase. Multiple twosomes ahead of us, one with walkers, led to slow play. We left after 13 holes and nearly 4 hours playing with no stopping after 9. No marshals monitoring slow play. Not worth $40-50. This is a course that’s worth $25 at most. Won’t give it another shot again.

Solid Course

Love this place! There are 27 holes and each 9 is solid. We played the Gold/Red this time and loved every bit of it. Nice clubhouse and love having a starter near the first tee to make sure the right group gets off on time. Other courses had issues with the rain that hit this area the last few days, but only saw one or two small spots that affected play a little.

Good order and flow!

My son and I played the course from Gold/Red and played the gold tee boxes which must have been added fairly recently since the tee box signs only show three distances. Red, White, and Blue. What we noticed was we were hitting cart paths with our shots more often than most courses due to some design problems, especially hole two on the Gold course. The cart path crosses the fairway! Otherwise I can imagine this course really being nice when newer. There were many walkers and I would actually recommend walking for a better pace of play. Another thing that was intriguing were the number of gulls on parts of the course! Playability wise it is a fairly tough test, especially from the back (Blue) tees. If you like shaping the ball, there are plenty of opportunities to fade or draw tee shots. I would recommend this course for people who break 90 or better on a regular basis. Also the carts are newer with canopy covers in case of rain.

Challenging greens!

I walked the course from a mixture of the white and gold tees and followed a twosome who played at a good pace. The course has a variety of dog legs which compliments a shot maker since some are fade tees and some draws. Overall it is a fairly challenging course due to the putting especially. Very few straight putts and semi-fast greens. Nice walking course, I would recommend the season pass for $29 if you plan on making this circuit a half dozen times or more. I am a senior, so the park pass may be more for younger players!

Great course better value

Only knock on this place is probably due to playing on fathers day but they really jam people on and if you spend 2 min looking for a ball in the rough the group behind is right up on you your almost pushed into taking a lost ball even though you should be right there in the rough. Like I said probably only because it was Father's day but I will be returning for sure

Great course for a morning round

Course is in Great shape. Staff inside is always pleasant and greets you well. Spilled an entire cup of coffee as soon as i stepped out the door, staff happily replaced it free of charge. Pace gets a little slow in the afternoons and on the weekends but have never had a round over 4 1/2. Great track if you can snag one of the hot deals.

Pace of play made me suicidal

Overall the course was nice and had a great layout. The pace on the other hand was absolutely embarrassing for the golf course. They should know how to properly space people. They should also become clear to those who are “bad” at golf. Enforcing a single shot rule, or pick up rule for those who are “bad” would solve the pace issue. I hope they fix this because I’m debating if I’ll ever return. SMH

Smelly backed up course

Although the staff in the pro shop was really nice that’s where the nice ended. The pace of play was really really bad, the garbage dump smells horrible and it’s a really loud course. The machinery they use is extremely loud and they don’t give a rip that you’re playing. A John Deere tractor rode right past the tee box as we were trying to tee off. Never been there before, and I won’t be there again.
