Waste of money and your time

Literally the worst golf experience I ever had in my life (I’ve been playing golf for more than 13years). Mean and lazy staffs, bad customer service, no course management, and many more . If you are planning on coming here to play, please read all the other reviews, and bring your HELMET! Last, staffs does NOT wear their face masks.

Great conditions in November

For November, this course was in great condition. Most of the leaves were cleared so not a lot of balls lost under leaves. Staff was friendly and got us out early. Overall very happy and will look to play again.
(only issue was my 18 Birdies app was totally wrong, I'll blame 18 Birdies for that)

Great public course

Very relaxed staff. Good carts. Greens and tee boxes in good shape. Most of the fairways on the back nine were roughs needing more maintenance. Most all fairways in good condition. Grill at the turn provides great hot dogs and burgers. A stop worthy of a sit down break. autumn leaves cleared off fairways.

Course is usually in great shape, but not today!!! Leaves, leaves,leaves! Everywhere, we spent most of the round looking for our balls because of the leaves. Then to top it off,several greens were covered with leaves, wishing we had a leaf blower.
Horrible.

Poor start

Had a 10:30 tee time and didn’t get out until after 11... when we arrived it looked like there was an outing going on ... at least 5-6 foursomes waiting to tee off... this caused major delays ... 4 hours through 13 holes I had to leave.. the reasoning was darkness in the morning ???????!

Surprising fast green

I have played this course more than 50 times. I never experienced such fast greens. The greens are fabulous and very good. The falling leaves made it very difficult to find the ball if you don't hit the fairway.

Danger Zones Abound

Many areas where balls are hit into adjoining holes. Dangerous spots all over...

Find Another Course

I feel ripped off after paying to play this course. Completely overpaid for an under managed course where you’re constantly hitting into narrow fairways with other groups fairways close by. Everything is so smushed together that one errant shot that can hit anybody. Do yourself and your wallet a favor and go elsewhere.

Review

- Very disorganized. Groups did not know when to tee off
- Waited an extra 15 min because there were no carts available
- Groups were put out with no spacing. Group of 10 on one hole.
- Course layout very tight with not many trees lining the holes. Felt very unsafe. Too many balls flying into other holes. Carts crossed over to other holes with no regard to group teeing off

Love this dog track

Far from a great track but pretty well maintained and pace of play is generally decent. Good value and for some reason generally join up with good people. Gotta keep your head on a swivel with fairways running parallel but thats part of the appeal.
