I liked the condition of the course overall. The cart paths definitely need some work and golfers definitely need to repair ball marks but overall a nice course for the money!

Took a chance booking a tee time of 12:30 but the weather was great!

I had three in my group and we were joined by another golfer.

The course was in excellent condition and the greens were also.

Scores were: Jay 72, Richard(me) 81, Tommy 82, and Danny 94. We all had a great round!!!

While the course was wet, a week of dry weather and it will be perfect. Was kind of crowded leading to may foursomes playing slow, but overall a good experiance.

The bunkers were white and fluffy as the should be. The greens needed a little attention but it has been very dry here lately. The staff is very friendly and I enjoyed a great round of golf and that is what it is all about!

Course just can’t dry out. Mud in middle of almost all fairways last few months. Hopefully gets some dry weather, but needs drainage work badly. Greens and sand bunkers are in four star shape, but the wet fairways just made it unenjoyable to play.

Awesome course. Great for any skill level. My 11 year old son and I both shot a good round. The majority of the holes have water hazards but the fairways are wide and forgiving. The staff were phenomenal! Highly recommend.... A+

Normally this one of my favorite courses in the Baton Rouge area, and it is typically in tip-top shape. But today we were surprised with nearly week old aerated greens and fairways. Lots of sand had been laid down. The green were very bumpy, slow and very inconsistent. Tough outing all together but the coirse was wide open. Give it some time and this course will come back around to its quality condition.
