So much potential, so little care
This course has so much potential if they just put in a little effort. To start, I had a 6:45AM tee time and I arrived at 6:15. Even though there were earlier tee times out there no one arrived to open the clubhouse until 6;35. The tee boxes were a good mix part grass and part mud…well mostly mud, snd very uneven . Fairways were much of the same. Nothing looked mowed and the were so many patches of dirt throughout fairways and the rough. The greens were the best part though. They were so patchy and had more bumps then my teenagers face. They were definitely not mowed in a while and didn’t roll even remotely true. I stopped at 9 holes as it wasn’t even fun to play. Sad part is if they put minimal money into taking care of the course it would be an amazing place to play. The layout was pretty cool and the views amazing. It wouldn’t take much effort to make this a great place to play. At the bare minimum mow the grass and they to take care of some of the weeds and it would be playable. I wouldn’t recommend this course until the management puts in the effort to make it worth playing again.
If you are looking for a course with incredible views, you found it! Settled up in the bluffs of Frontnec , you get way more for your $$ than you could hope . Not a long course but very challenging short par 4"s with a lot of trees . Great staff and head pro . Food is delicious and the patio area is nice as well . Best part is the deals they have !! You can't be the prices at this golf course . Just make sure to ask if they have any deals going on . Love the greens , short and pretty fast . Only down fall is the gnats ..
