Ok, I have played here many times. I do not play because it is a challenging or beautiful. It is close and relatively inexpensive. I will often play here with people who need a little more forgiveness in a course. The rough was ridiculously long. So deep, we could not find golf balls. I know what you are going to say, "hit it in the fairway". Well we all know that just does not happen as often as we want especially with golfers who do not play very often. Based on how many golf balls we found that were not ours, we were not the only ones with this issue.

I really wish courses would go back to dress codes. Tank tops and cut off should not be allowed. This course has none.

Pace of play was very slow. Majority of the players were pretty poor golfers who did not understand how to play at a decent rate. Holes are close together so you end up playing with the groups on adjacent holes. Loud! Greens are fantastic though. A decent place to take kids and/or new players. Will not go back unless it's my only alternative.

The course was in good shape especially the greens. Wide open fairways lined by mature trees. Fairways aren't as manicured as more expensive courses but good. Easy to walk and great value for the money. LCFP has done a good job on improvements to the course. Not fancy but enough to challenge most golfers.

Super friendly customer service at the club house. Starter let us start on 10 rather than wait for a father and young son who were getting ready to tee off on 1. Fairways were well maintained. Challenge at time is finding the ball if you went in the trees with the leaves starting to fall. Would not be a problem if you stayed in the fairway. Temp green at 16 but looks like the normal green will be ready next yr.

Overall the course was in very good condition. Although it was a nice Sunday afternoon, we played as a twosome at a really leisurely pace, There was a temporary green on 16 but not a big deal. Next year they are planning to add surrounding greenside bunkers on the 18th, which will make it a more challenging closing hole.

Showed up for my 10:49am tee time at 10:30am only to have both employees in the pro shop completely ignore that I was there. I didn't get out of the pro shop until 10:50am as they decided to help the 3 groups that walked into the pro shop after I did (seemed like they were regulars). Course was in overall decent condition besides hole 16 which had a temporary green the size of a frisbee as they were doing some maintenance to the actual green. I probably would not go back here unless I were to play for free.

The fairways were a bit run down on a few holes, but there was grass on all of them. The greens were in great shape, but they are not big so be ready to "throw darts". Only about 5900 yards from the tips, par 70. It is a very good value and the pace was okay.

I booked the tee time and it was very easy upon arrival. The greens will maintained except for 1 hole which was a little rough but understandable because the course was in the process of putting a reconditioned hole. The ranger WAS extremely helpful in getting us off and letting us skip a couple holes to prevent having to wait for a back log which worked out great. It was great relaxing afternoon.

The course was in decent shape, although there was some re-construction going on around 16 green. Fairly easy course for the intermediate player. Played with my wife she enjoyed fact that there were no long shots required to the fairways and greens.
We would play again with the golf now discount.

Although only a moderate challenge, it was really fun playing the day before Father's Day with almost no one on the course. Fairways and greens are well maintained and added to our pleasurable experience.
