Mixed Bag

Great check in staff, inside. Super nice, super helpful. . Zero starter or coordination of tee off's and rate of play. Also a lot of jerks deciding they don't want to wait for their tee time so they jump to the 10 hole and start piling people up and screwing up the enjoyment of the round.

Garbage

So with the bad weather today we called just to check if they would be open. Called 3 separate times and no answer and left a voicemail. I decided to drive there early enough to find out they were open just not answering calls. They also notified me it’s walking only and no notice of that at all before hand. Canceled my tee time

Bumpy or temporary greens right now

Good walkable course and affordable but this Sunday (fall) half the greens were temporary and the greens they did have operational were so bumpy they were still unputtable. That really made for a less enjoyable round. Understand fall golf anything can happen but they really should inform u when u make a reservation for tee time.

Course is in bad shape

This course has gone downhill quite a bit. The greens were chewed up. Some greens were under repair and makeshift pins were placed in the fairway with no notice prior to playing. Cart paths not maintained. Shame, as this course has been nice in the past.

I get it is the end of the season but, to not only cut holes in the fairway on more than half of the greens but then not let us know what to expect or offer us a discount is a shame. Poor player experience

Temporary greens

Beautiful course, that being said. Most of the holes had temporary greens, and the ones that didn’t the greens were horrendous. If I had known I would not have booked the round. Checked their website and nothing was mentioned about the greens. Refund is in order , but don’t expect it.

Majority off greens were temporary greens.

I booked this course through golfnow. It was fairly expensive but booked at last moment. When we began play we found out that most of the greens were closed and replaced with temp greens. There was no warning while booking and not even a discount given. Very disappointed.

Course has zero puttable greens

They need to fix the greens. There are zero puttable greens. This has been the case since summer 2022. Please fix them.
Folks are nice but golf is bad. Hope 2023 is better.

50% temporary greens

All the greens are struggling here in mid-October: large grassless patches are present even on the greens that are in play; and nine of the holes have temporary holes, several of which seem like tricky mini-golf holes. The putting practice green has been closed for weeks, and the driving range was closed for hours in the morning before my tee time. Local golfers should let the course have time to heal and come back in spring 2023. If you must play, take a laser rangefinder to get your yardages, since smartphone apps will not be consistently useful on your approach shots.
