Some picturesque places to play from

Played after it had rained and was cart path only so that slowed our group down. Lift,clean,place and in some cases retrieve from underwater! Would like to play again without the puddles in fairways, also some of the Tee box locations need to be Re-thought. Having to go backwards to play next hole causes delays and interrupts golfers behind you in certain spots otherwise it was ok with potential . Back 9 was VERY wet and soupy. Greens slow but in good shape

Gotta make some changes!

I’ve played here for years! Smaller course with casual pace of play. Lately it’s been getting really loud with the DJ music which makes it really distracting to focus. Most of the time they’re putting tee times at the same time outings are going on. Today they hosted a kids outing with little guys were running around on other peoples greens. To me it doesn’t make sense to put tee times at the same time as the outing. You’re only going to waste time and money for everybody. I think it’s time I stick to the other Mercer Oaks courses. As it is, there needs to be some big changes or else I’ll consider this the last time I play there.

Brilliant course, fast greens and very tight fariways

Course is in great shape, very tight and small greens so beware of off line hits. This has not been aerated yet so plays very nice. Love the course!

Ridiculous how slow it's getting on weekdays. These places could save money by getting rid of rangers they do nothing and never see them. So computers were down and they took our name and said come pay at end of round. The course called me I was still on 17 asking if I skipped payment I said still on the course playing and she says omg it's really that slow and I said yeah where has your ranger been all day.

Worst mercer county course

Staff inside are not friendly and just have horrible attitudes.
There are always holes closed but you will still be charged full price even though 6 or 7 holes are closed. They have cicada killers all over the course in the fairways and around the greens. Only friendly person you will meet is the starter and he they always seem scared of the other staff, but they are the best worker there. Pace of play is always a problem because it is a beginners course. If you are looking to golf in mercer county or around there just go down the road to mercer oaks
