The greens are in very poor shape. The first two holes was even worse cause they add sod on the green. Then as we was playing the greens didn’t get any better. So we quit that was a waste of time and money. Played other city course they look better. Will not play here again.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. I was running late for my tee times and they assured me my round of golf and preferred I travel safely than unsafely due to road conditions. I rate the staff 5 stars and will play this course again soon.. The course was very good and was impressed with the conditions of the course for the low price I paid for the round of golf

On the front nine most greens had 20-30% loss. Might as well have putted in the parking lot. Back nine was better, but with less than 10% loss average, but all ran slow. Rest of course was in decent shape, few bare tee boxes.

Course in good shape, but greens were poor. Browned out, very dry. Had fertilizer on them, so hope they will bounce back with some water.

Likely a good course at one time, greens were below average, pace of play slow, four hours and forty five minutes. The greens need to improve before I return.

Course is in more consistently great shape than other munis in the area and for no more than $40 for a round most days it’s hard to beat. Fun layout with some challenging holes depending on what tees you play from.

Nice pace if play even though lots of people were out. Greens were just so-so. Not too bad but some bumpy rides. You can see in the photo. Bunker sand was pretty good. Bev cart and ranger made it around a few times. Plenty of water coolers.

Overall, the course was in really good condition, probably the best shape I have ever seen. I can't put my finger on it, but the greens were missing something. That's the only reason I didn't give it five stars.

Okay was slow due to too many players booked at each tee time. We quit after 9 holes.
