Mixed feelings

Great course but management is a joke. It’s clear the workers have received zero training. They’re sending people off the back in front of people making the turn and slowing play way down. Won’t look you in the eye, slow, lack of friendliness. Whoever the manager of the course is has clearly done zero training of staff and it wrecks an otherwise great experience.

Was bad before, worse now

Last time we played this course was about 10 years ago. It's a frustrating place to play as the course is basically cut through a forest. Tree's line every fairway and there is no room for error. We needed a place to play last Friday and we called around, this was the only place that could get us out so we bit the bullet and played here. Big mistake. course is in worse condition now than it was 10 years ago. The tee boxes haven't been cut in who knows how long, the course plays insanely slow. I thought new ownership took over this place. The only change we can see that was made was moving the #10 tee box over so it basically plays as a par 3 now. This course needs soooo much work it's unbelievable. Tee boxes and greens need to be maintained much better, they need to reduce the tree's on this course by about 70% and open this course up more. Some of slopes on the greens are ridiculous, this isn't the Masters, heck it's not even a good course, why are a lot of the greens like putting on the side of a hill?!! And stop booking tee times every 6 minutes, with all the tree's on this course it's going to play super slow cause there is no room for error so people are constantly searching for balls. I know it will cost a ton of money to renovate this course but it needs some serious TLC. The main thing is cutting down tree's. This will open the course up and speed up the pace of play. Then maintain the course. Keep the fairways, tee boxes, and greens in good condition. People shouldn't be paying money to play on a course where the tee boxes and parts of the fairways look like someone's backyard. This is a golf course, treat it like one. Won't be coming back. For a little more money there are courses that can be played not fair from this one that are well operated and maintained. Don't waste your time and more importantly your money. Not worth it.

Slow pace of play

Tee time was at 9:54 which we arrived for with plenty of time but they put a group of 4 elderly women in front of us (dou) which were supposed to go off at 10:05 which moved us back to 10:12. We were just playing 9 holes and it took 3 hours and 15 minutes. The pace of play was so slow it was ridiculous. Won’t be going back for awhile. It’s a nice course but pace of play and scheduling of tee times was bad.

Good Round

I went alone and was allowed to pass by people on the front 9, but got held up for around a half hour waiting for the league players to all tee off and set a relatively slow pace to even out a quick front. I like the course, well kept and pretty challenging.

Slow, and beat up

If you’re looking for a six hour getaway, This is the place to go. The teetimes are booked so close back to back that you are always waiting no matter what. The tea boxes are in such bad condition that finding a decent lie just to plant the tee is a task. Add that to the beat up fairways and patchy greens and you will almost guarantee a stressful and frustrating round. It took us 3 hours to finish 9 holes and I didn’t even bother going to the clubhouse.

Tight and Challenging.

Fairways are definitely tight, lined with trees. Tee shots HAVE to be good/great for you to have a chance a keeping your ball.

Greens were surprisingly (for the overall cost of the course) very challenging. A lot of the holes have supreme slope, so most of the time, you want to hit it short of the pin at all costs. There are several greens with multiple hills, that make putting a true challenge.

It was the first time playing here, so a couple of the tee boxes, we were confused on which fairway was ours, but I'm attributting that to ignorance of the course.

There are a couple of holes that will test your will. But there are birdie opportunities for sure...but only if your tee shot is almost perfect.

If your driver/long clubs aren't consistently straight...expect a some donated golf balls to the golf gods/trees.
