Great course, slow pace of play

No starter, people didn’t show up on time for their tee times which caused a terrible back up. The greens were nice as fast, the sand bunkers have no sand in them or are flooded.

A hidden gem

Great price, it’s flat for the most part so it’s good to walk and get some exercise, not overly populated so it’s a casually quick course too....

The only real downside is the patchy fairway on some holes but it’s definitely worth the price.

We stayed for dinner and our server Pete was great.

Caught a day after airation

Many fairways had just been airated. Spent some time in the bunkers today, they were mostly dirt/clay, no sand. One had a lot of stones . Greens were in pretty good shape, not a lot of ball marks. Thank you fellow golfers. I do wish the sprinkler heads had some yardage markers on them.

Season Opener For Me

I booked a twilight round starting @3:30.using a cart. One thing I noticed was that another couple had the same round time but they were walking. I let them go ahead of me. What I found is that it was busy today so the course was backed up.

Around 7:00 while I was on the 15th hole, an attendant came by and said I could not finish because carts were supposed to be in at 7:00. So I didn’t get to complete my round.

Overall, booking through GolfNow was good.
