I was to play 18 holes but could only get in 9 because of the pace of play and the fact that the cart needed to be returned by 630. Very disappointing

Not Friendly

My first few holes I shot a 7,7,8. I owe my first few bad holes to the greens keeping lady who yelled at me and my friend for getting dropped off in the employee parking lot. She even went out of her way to yell at us in front of everyone in the clubhouse , leaving me quite embarrassed and rattled on the first tee box. Overall the solo I played with was a good guy. Course was in great condition.

Don’t come here for twilight

Not worth the money if you plan to play anytime after 3, carts have to be in early. You’re expected to play at super speeds Staff is overbearing and unfriendly. Range is inoperable, what a shame for such a nice course overall

The best county course I have played so far

Wow I did not expect this course to be so nice to play considering it's a county course. It had great views, unique hole layouts, and the conditions exceeded my expectations. Highly recommend playing this county course if you haven't played here. The best out of the 3-4 I have played so far. Only downsides is it's by a police academy and gun shots are heard often. Other than that can't really think of a reason not to go here.

Very slow play on a Friday afternoon - some bunkers had rocks and the greens were in need of players fixing divots - we must have fixed 25 divots when there was a lot more work needed

County should review operations

I feel that the course was challenging, fun, and well designed; however, the staff should be more friendly and accommodating to the customer! I also feel that the this course should relax their mask mandates.

Single Speed

I booked a 2:50 tee time late night before my round & was pleased to see I was the only person teeing off. The foursome in front of me permitted me to shoot with them on 2nd hole. I was free & clear until the 12th when I met up with another single. Then we met w/ a twosome slowed down by a foursome at 15. I skipped 15 to find 16 open & cruised through that then finished 17 & 18 with another twosome. Very pleased with my 17 holes in 2 1/2 hours. Course was in great shape, fast greens.

Carts in by 7:30 PM in mid-June??? Don't play this course.

The course is OK but the staff is horrible. No customer service from anyone except for Gene who is a nice guy.

Sunset was at 8:32 PM today and carts had to be in by 7:30 PM???? That's just plain stupid.

It's a very hilly course so to have to walk is not easy. Skip this place as there are other more friendly places to play that give you more time with the carts.
