Costs way too much, new ownership jacked up price ( although I believe all area courses charge too much) … course is tough and tight, years of underwatering and lack of maintenance have taken a toll, hope the new owners put the time and monies needed into it.

Fairways are burnt

First time playing here in 2 years and will not go back. The fairways are in terrible condition and burnt on many holes. The pace of play was horrible. Finally, we were asked to wait 20 minutes in the fairway on the 18th hole because a wedding was going on at the first tee. Don’t waste your time or money on this terrible golf course !

Sad decline

I’ve played in here in the past and always considered it one of the “nicer” courses in my area. When I had some family come in from out of town I insisted we play there to shoot a nicer course but that’s not what we found this time. Patchy brown fairways. Trees overgrown blocking parts of the cart path. We even lost two balls in rough areas because there were yards and yards of just dead grass piles. Carts need to badly be washed. The staff was really nice but the touches that show pride and care are not present here

Challenging layout needs restoration

I hope someone is able to form an investment group and sink some money into improving this course. I have no idea what their finances are like from other revenue sources, but it seems this is a great design of a course that could really use someone making a financial commitment to restore the course to what must have been its former glory. As far as playing, it is tight, with narrow tree-lined fairways that will get you in trouble if you are hitting it sideways. Sloping and winding fairways make for challenging drives and approach shots. A great place to take an assessment of your long game. The greens would very dangerous if they were restored, as they are quite sloped also. WP also sits in a very nice community, which let you see the potential here.

improving

Course was in much better shape than last year. Played on a wet, cool day, no golfers on the course for the front 9. Pro shop staff very friendly. I am sure that we will be back.

Could be so much more.

First and foremost they charge more on golfnow then the actual standard rate which i have NEVER experienced. They didn't not have crew out at all. Greens not blown off, tee boxes not mowed in days and whoever cut them last didn't even put a significant number of tee markers back. Course plays tight and will make you hate your driver. A lot of potential amd worth a try.
