It's gone from good to unacceptable

Showed up 20 minutes before tee time, two groups in front of us were waiting for golf carts, we finally got carts and teed off about 40 minutes after our tee time. The reward for all that frustration was greens that were terrible.

In good shape, especially for a drought.

The course is in pretty good shape all things considered. The only thing you have to watch out for would be getting killed by limbs from all of the dead trees. Need lots of work there.

Greens could be better

All the holes did not have the layout marked clearly. The greens are not being repaired and maintained. For a first time player all directions from one hole to the next not clearly marked

Guilty of neglect

Without a marshall or anyone paying attention, the course is becoming unplayable. People were allowed to run around the course jumping in front of people, and the pace of play was about 5 hours.

Nice track

Brought a couple friends from St Louis where I grew up, this course is somewhat similar to the one I work at in Memphis. Good pace of play, think you'll enjoy it. We'll be back when in the area.

The course is in great shape, especially the greens. Played late afternoon, and the groups were courteous and pace was excellent, as played 18 in less than 3 hours.

Easiest of the two city courses

Over the past several years, the powers-that-be have continued to make this course easier to play. So what you have is a nice, straightforward course that doesn't eat every ball you brought to the course. It's a beautiful setting, nice clubhouse, good carts, and decent conditions. My only gripe is that players are not fixing their ball marks on the greens. I don't know how the course fixes that, but it's an issue.
