First Time

Loved the layout and course design. First time playing and very hard. If you miss the fairway you don't have a swing 80% of the time.
Greens very fast and true.

High handicappers will struggle but will enjoy the tour and scenery, Low handicappers will love the challenge.

Course with some character

By using the Golf Now app we had excellent savings. Course was in decent condition. A number of greens were under repair on the fringes, new sod had been laid. As a result on several holes I skipped short chip shots. Course had a number of interesting holes with both water and sand traps. Also watch out for snakes, we saw several, one on a green sunning himself and two on tee boxes, each three to four feet!

Good Bones

The course has some issues with greens around the course. If they step up keeping the greens nicer it would be rated much higher as I liked the course, it had good bones as they say. I heard back in the day it was really nice. The staff was very friendly and nice. Quick service in the bar area at the turn if you call ahead. They did a great job in the bar and club house area. For the money you can find cheaper courses in the same condition. They did play music at the range which was nice. Could be the time of year. I'll go back sometime and see if the course improves.

Disappointed with course maintenance

A few greens in really bad shape as were some of tee boxes. Many showing the wear of long season. So for the price paid, in my opinion, not really worth the $$$.

Course is more of a target golf layout. Multiple doglegs so you have to leave your shots in position to go for green.

Staff were helpful.

Weeds and greens

Love this course!
Staff superb!
Front 9 Pace was poor due to 1 group with small kid?
Starter correctly pushed the group to move to the next hole and pick it up, great pace afterwards.
Weed infestation around greens kinda sucked as well as the greens being pretty poor, slow and not maintained.
Played here many times over the years and this round was great but would have been better if the greens were maintained, for $85.00 disapointed.

Great course. Terrible pace of play.

Just like the many reviews I read before me, the pace of play here really soured the round. For whatever reason the Ranger sent a 5-some out ahead of us. They played terribly slow, showed zero urgency, and through conversation did not hint at the thought of us playing through whatsoever. It was a painful 4 hours and 45 minutes of waiting. Great course but you must fix that pace of play!

Rainy Day

Course is beautiful, unfortunately when we went it had rained the morning before our tee time. Course doesn’t seem to drain well and becomes pretty difficult as there is already a lot of water hazards on the course. Greens are very patchy with weeds although still rolled smooth. Pace of play was amazing, pretty much had no golfers around us, but also played on a Monday mid-day after rain. Would definitely play again.

Meh

The pace of play ruined it for me. The 3some in front of us appeared not to tee off until 3some in front of them were on the greens on the par 4s and 5 in addition to teeing off another drive instead of dropping, when they shanked... while the back up was obvious.
Had to leave on 16th hole because storms .We lost at least 30/35 minutes waiting at Tee boxes. The course is a beauty, I hate unnecessary slow play and paying 90. AND not being able to finish.
