Teatime was 8:15 AM. Front desk and starter were friendly and course was not crowded at that time. Fairways were average to above average, but traps were dried mud with very little sand in places. Greens were patchy with numerous dead spots. Some spots had been covered with sand to try to repair. I won’t play here again at this price.

The greens are crap, the fairways have holes everywhere, the pace of play is terrible and the marshals don't know how to move people along to prevent a 5 hour round.

The superintendent should be fired for letting the course get to the condition it's in, especially since he was released from a different course for the same reason!

To pay the weekend rate and be forced to play conditions that this goat track have, players should be played to play here!

As for the 5 star reviews, I hope those folks stay there and keep my home course free from lack of etiquette! Good luck.

This course needs to massive improvements!

First the superintendent should be fired, then hire one that knows how to take care of a course!

The ranger and starter should manage their course and control the pace of play so it doesn't take 5 hours to play a goat track that this course is!

This course has the nerve to charge 45 dollars on a weekend? They should be paying players to come out!

First time playing this course. Staff was very friendly and there were no issues there. My only reason for giving a low rating is because of the course conditions. Fairways were not up to par with most other courses. Lots of bare dirt spots throughout. Greens were rough and bumpy. And traps were hard pan and most were holding water from irrigation. I give the staff 5, but the course a 2.

Back 9 was perfectly fine. Some of the holes on the front 9 were tough to play on. Extremely patchy greens we causing balls to dribble on putts. Some of the fairways needed a haircut. Overall, playing golf anywhere is fun, I just expected a little more out of it for the money I spent. Also, be prepared to lose some balls to water unless you bring your golf GPS. Lots of tricky spots where you don't see a creek from a tee box. Would go back if they lowered prices. I've played better courses for cheaper.

Very good greens, fairways need some filling in, bunkers definitely need sand but the layout is challenging making up for the other minor issues. I definitely recommend it, especially for the price..

You should train your staff not to ask for a tip when you order a hotdog. I always tip but when she says would you like to leave me gratuity, it really makes me not want to.

We love the course as the pace of play is good, but not rushed. As a beginner you have the chance to redo a hit if you messed up the first one.

My son and I love it there and the staff is super nice.

Fun track. I only got to play the front 9, the rain chased us off, but I really liked the layout and the staff was very friendly. I look forward to going back to play the whole course. On #9, if it's your first time playing the course, drive up to the creek before you tee off the playable area is weird. Water on the left and the creek is drivable on the right side.
