I’ve played this course several times and decided to give it a chance again, only because I got a hot deal on GolfNow for $22. For the full price this course charges ($40-$50), I would never play here. The fairways are patchy and the bunkers are never raked after rain, leaving hard and packed mud. Drainage on the course is also terrible, which could lead to a ball sitting in a puddle in or near the fairway. When I played yesterday, the greens were being grown out after aeration and were incredibly slow. When cut, the greens could be very nice. It was just frustrating to play on such a long cut, as it made putts roll very bumpy. Layout is great, but course conditions and price are what hold this course back from being good value.

Overall, course was pretty challenging even with some short holes. Ample amounts of sand and water in strategic places. Greens in good shape.

First five holes we were overrun with mosquitoes. BRING A BUG REPELLENT!

Would be nice to have a ranger out there to push slow players. Course was is nice shape especially the greens. Fairways tended to have a lot of dollar weed on them. A nice layout for one of the oldest courses in the area.

This is a nice course in need of some watered fairways. The greens are in fair condition.

What is mostly disturbing about this course is the individuals jumping in front of groups during the round. This has now happened to our group three times playing this course as well as one group of 4 playing at the pace of a snail with two open holes in front of them.

Found a special price and was a little worried about what we would find. When you drive up don't let the exterior of the clubhouse scare you, the course is much better than that. The staff were friendly and helpful. Pretty much water on every hole but still fair. No hidden holes...what you see is what you get. Course in good condition.

It was a short but heavy rain the night before so the first nine was pretty pretty wet. Fairways on the back nine are in fine shape. Some of the greens are patchy. Definitely a fun and challenging course to play. Staff was good and informative it was our first time there.
