Great holiday round

Thank you for satisfying the needs of us to work off the holiday sweets! fairways leaf free, some soggy spots due to the rains earlier in the week, but overall still a great course to walk. greens in great shape...except 16 can use a periodic sweep of the goose poop.

First Ace!

Played with a really nice young man who was possibly more excited than i was when I got my HIO.
Overall the course was in very good shape. Especially considering the time of year. I will definitely return!

No starter again

Always enjoy playing here. But today, no starter this Saturday - which allowed a group of 4 to jump ahead of us with a bogus "tee time". Didn't want to start the round with a fight - so let them go. Of course they were slow players hitting multiple balls off tee box. Desk folks always effecient. Course nicely cleared of leaves. greens and tees in good condition.

As a frequent golfer here, I always appreciate the professional care I receive at registration. Love it or hate it - there's rarely a starter on weekdays, but when the Weekend starter is there - this is more order.

Decent course

The staff is nice. The food is good. The course is fair. A little wet in some areas, and there is definitely not enough sand in the traps. Two that I hit out of had stones in them.
