used to have the best greens in the thumb area!

Course is in terrible shape! I was a member for years. It’s embarrassing to see the shape it is in. Hope they can sell it to someone with lots of time and $$$ to bring it back to the course it used to be. Going to take a few years. My opinion is to play The Timber’s or maybe The Fortress. Both in excellent shape!!

The fairways were terrible grass to long and so many dandelions.The tee boxes were bad grass to long and very uneven. Very doubtful I will play there again and I would not recommend this course to add ny of my golfing pals

I know it's early in the season so I'm sure once more grooming takes place it will be gorgeous as always.

Falling apart

It is sad to see a course with such potential be so poorly kept. Tee boxes had zero work done to them, greens were so covered in debris that they were unputtable. Very disappointing.

Nice friendly course.

I’ve played this course a few times now and it never disappoints me. It’s a nice short course that has a few surprising holes.

Golfer Well

Round went well. Played decent... shot 84. Greens very slow, but to be expected. Showed up early and only 1 person on the course. They tried to say that we were supposed to be grouped up with someone else, after booking through Golfnow. I don't think so. I booked for 2 people. Oh well. Brother said he played well and was happy how he played but not happy losing by 12 strokes lol.

Not a Country Club

Definitely not a county club, more like back country golf. It's early in the season so maybe it'll be better in the summer but the course conditions were terrible. Tee boxes were a mess and broken branches everywhere on the course.

Poor course

Not maintained very well. Could hardly tell the difference between rough and fairway. Some greens better than other mostly all the greens had dry rough patches on them. Not worth the money in my opinion.
