Pace of play big problem

Had a tee time in the AM and didn't even finish the round. Waited 20 minutes in between every shot. It wasn't even that busy either. Two foursomes of older guys hitting from the yellows backed the entire course up and had a careless attitude as to they didn't really care they were backing everyone up. At one point there was 5 different groups on hole 10. Took 2 and half hours just to get thru 4 holes. Seems to be like this every time i play here which is why i won't be back.

First Time Playing

Had a great time and will be back for sure

Me and my wife played here for the first time and we had such a great time. The course was very well maintained and pro shop staff is very friendly and helpful. It has some challenging holes where you definitely need control on your shots. I normally don’t play the course that is embedded in a residential neighborhood because I always feel stressful for the misses, but I will be back to play this course again in the near future.

No again....

This course had been making progress in repairing their image for being slow. But....3 hours in, our group completed the first 9 holes. At one point, there were seven (7), yes 7, groups between two holes. I called the club house and they said they would send a Marshall out. Tick, tock; tick, tock.....No Marshall ever came to check on the situation.

Good value, for sure

For $27 with a cart, excellent deal because the course is good. There was sand, lots of sand, which made putting a nightmare. A few bunkers were pretty bad and were free drop areas. Shockingly, on a Tuesday 1030am tee time, as a single, took me about 4.5 hours, which is normal, just seemed slow playing alone. It’s a challenging course, but one that will allow you to score with well placed shots. I am a 10.9 handicap and shot an 84, losing at least 3 shots on sandy greens. Overall, a great deal for a very solid course.
