Slooooooow play

The guys ahead of us were horrible golfers, one was playing 2 or 3 balls at a time. Didn’t see a Marshall. Thankfully they only played 9. Greens ate-up in spots and no grass on fairways(Bermuda), but it’s winter golf. We’ll be back in the spring!

Windy, cold but fun!

As above, the was was howlin and the sky was gray but we had fun because no one was out there but us! We caught a 4some on 9 but they went in the clubhouse at the turn and the rest of the round it was just us. Hole locations were at odd places on some of the greens and a few of the greens were ate up in spots but overall a fun round. We’ll be back when it warms up…….

Disappointing course

First off, my only positive for the round was it only cost me $15.
This is a very stunty course. If you cannot hit every shot straight, then this course is not for you. Many of the fairways have serious L-R or R-L slope or moguls along the edges, so if you are not down the middle, odds are your ball will roll off or bounce into the crap. Case in point, on the very first hole, I hit the far right side of the fairway with a slight draw. My ball ended up down the hill on the left side of the fairway, almost in the rough. I was lucky to find the ball. And by the way, on most of the holes, anything off the fairway is OB, so be prepared for lots of penalty strokes as well as lost balls. Also lots of blind shots over hills. That might not be a problem on most days, but this time of year, the leaves will eat your ball, assuming you didn't ricochet off some mound that you didn't know was there.
The greens were slow and many had massive dead patches. But the tee boxes and cart paths were well maintained.
Overall, a disappointing experience. For being a 'resort' course, I expected better. I won't be back.

Go ahead, tee it up

Some challenging holes. Go for it or lay up. Can be a fun course.
Greens were very fast. Drives bounced on in the Fairways.

Beautiful fall setting.

I've played this course on and off for over 50 years.
Back when it was the Teamsters . The staff have done a very nice job maintaining this property.
Keep up your good work.

Well maintained except for bunkers.

Love the course. Trees continue to be thinned out which is great. Please keep working on that. It's too bad the greens have been talin a devastating hit this hot summer. I will continue to play in 2 leagues the next summer.

Good Value

Haven’t played this course in a long time and was pleasantly surprised. Much work has been done to improve the property. Some of the greens were a little rough. Bottom line is that they are doing a lot of work on this course.

Some greens had a fungus, the sand traps were not playable & had not been raked in some time. I have played this course over the past ten years. The course is not being maintained to its 4-star rating. Too much emphasis on the pro shop, banquet room, and lack of emphasis on the golf course. I course rating has dropped to a 3-star. Hire a groundskeeper who knows what he is doing for starters.

Poor maintenance

The course is poorly maintained. The greens are in poor condition aswell as the bunkers. The price to play is the high for how the course is maintained.

Not Worth it At All

Played this course in the summer of 2021 and it was in pretty poor shape. Decided to give it another go this summer and it surprisingly was worse. The greens are absolutely beat up and dead and the fairways are like the rough at most courses. The course Marshall’s and starters don’t really help pace of play at all. For $50, it is absolutely not worth it at all.
