Very good conditions for very wet May. This is a true players course, precision iron play is necessary. Only a hand full of driving holes, anywhere in the rough is a double bogey. Good tough course for more skilled players.

When I showed up to play, the starter did not have my GolfNow reservation. He was very nice and got my friends and I out a couple minutes later. He only charged us the GolfNow rate which was nice. But I am a little disappointed that my tee time was not reserved.

We apologize for the confusion with your tee time and are happy to hear that the cashier was able to accommodate your group. All GolfNow reservations are booked through GolfNow and not our reservation system, so unfortunately there is nothing we can do on our end to rectify the issue. We will address the problem with Golfnow and hopefully rectify what happened in the future. Thank you.

We're sorry you didn't enjoy the course. We have bathrooms located on both the front 9 and the back 9 in addition to the first and 10th tees and signage on the scorecard as well as on every tee box as to where to go. If you decide to play again please ask us where to go and where the bathrooms are located and we will be happy to point you in the correct direction. Thank you
