Went and played this golf course today and they had a 90 degree rule on the whole course but it was dry and hard . Grass was either dead and short or long and weeds and you couldn’t find or follow your ball because of this . It’s like the course has no grounds crew . Bunkers are hard pan or mud .sad to see golf courses in such conditions

They have completely let this course go. I booked online and photos of course aren't anywhere close to what you'll find in reality. Course is extremely dry and hasn't been watered in years, sprinklers are all broken w 1 foot dia green weeds around the sprinkler which is where you drop after you land in fairway. Bunkers have no sand and are insanely overgrown w weeds, never seen anything like this. Saw a tee time for $11 and took it !! Wow to my amazement pay for what you get , Huh..Staff was very nice though. Just very misleading from what you see online. Gotta ice my wrist, Really..Hard pan.

The fairways haven’t been cut in 4-5 days, the bunkers are gone. Filled with weeds. On the bright side the greens are decent. Oh and the bathrooms were locked- why? This course is within a retirement community, on a Sunday afternoon.

This was a course years ago, it’s shameful the conditions the management presents.

The rough is unplayable, 6in high and grass clippings everywhere. Greens are in reasonably good condition. Fairways unevenly mowed and wide variations of turf and length. Won’t play here again until a competent owner/manager takes over. $20 was terribly spent.

The nicest thing I could say about this course is that the cart paths are nice. I was told in the pro-shop that the bunkers were unplayable. That was an understatement. They were hard packed and full of weeds. The whole course was overgrown and poorly maintained. The fairways were dried out with the occasional over watered low area. The greens were recently aerated. Although the holes were mostly filled in, the greens were incredibly slow and very bumpy. I will not be playing there again.

This course appears unkempt completely. Rough is unplayable and overgrown. The greens were in terrible shape. Tee boxes were even overgrown with weeds and high grass. A pathetic excuse for a golf course. I played this course at a heavily discounted rate and it was still too much. Save your time and money and avoid.

Course in poor condition and getting worse as the weather warms. Minimal staff is doing their best just to keep the fairways and greens mowed and that's about it. Be ready to lose balls in the knee high rough. Was advised to lift ball out of bunkers because there is no sand and they are full of weeds and water. Apparently the course management is bankrupt and trying to sell.

The maintenance on this course was ridiculous. The company that owns the course is in Chapter 11. If you hit your ball 16 inches off the fairway you will NOT find your ball. Fairways are in good condition but everything else is garbage. They should be begging people to play here. Not charging $45 for a terrible experience.

They have really let this course go. Every bunker had weeds at least 1-2feet tall, unplayable. I had trouble finding my ball on the fairway a handful of times. If you landed a little off the fairway, good luck finding your ball. Long thick crab grass and weeds everywhere.

The grounds crew has really let this course deteriorate! When you need to take time to find you ball in the middle of the fairway due to the length of the unmonitored grass, the game ceases to be fun!

Granted that it has been raining a lot, but the grounds are worse now than they were a month ago! This is AWFUL!
