Good public course in great condition for Dec. There was an hour frost delay but we got out about 30 minutes later than our tee time, so the staff did a good job keeping things moving. Bunkers were generally hard and greens had divot marks, but it's December. Would've been nice to have a reduced fee for December. But a good public course overall.

Poor Experience

The non-resident fees are high; however, I knew that going into the round. I was traveling from out of town and needed rental clubs the fees quoted on the phone were not what I was charged at the facility. Oh well, so far I can handle all of this. The four different irons, two different shafts and two different woods barely from this century were most assuredly a problem for what I was charged.

Course conditions were not the best, tee boxes were in poor shape on some holes, bare spots around greens, too many ball marks that were not addressed, and poor drainage on several holes. Would not be a problem if I had not paid as much as I did.

Finally, as a first time player I made the mistake of going from the new 12th green to one of the tee boxes on the learning course - the one where they destroyed several original Charles Banks holes to create. I caught my mistake; however, this did not stop the gentleman that runs the learning facility from coming out to rip me a new one and give me a hard time. This one really really bothered me as there was no ill intent and at this point in the slow round, I just wanted to finish.

There are much much better public courses to play in the area at better rates and much much better customer service.

Great county course!

I’ve played several times since the renovation, it was sorely needed and well done! Great value for the money and the foliage made it a beautiful day to play. Give it a try!

Greens are still a little slow

I like the new layout, huge greens complexes as a result of the update which is great but since they are still new greens are a little slow and need some more time to grow and mature.

Definitely worth playing or keeping in the rotation as it does challenge you to hit a variety of shots.

Course doesn’t have a lot of teeth at the moment but if the greens are on the quicker side the course could get really tricky.

Forgot to Zip

Course was nice. Well kept municipal course. Pace of play good . Amenities fair. It was my first time playing this course.
The urinals in the clubhouse shoot back at you . Flush o meters too strong. When u get wet sometimes u forget to ZIP trying to clean off. In the future I would recommend to this golf course staff DO not put a visiting first time senior player on the Defensive. I’m not here to qualify myself! I’m just here to hit balls follow the rules and pace of play and walk away calm.
