I joined a twilight league here knowing that this course is mainly practice for irons and woods. The fairways were pretty long in some spots making it hard to find a ball. The greens were kept up pretty well and pretty fast. First cut was a little long. There weren't any surprises, and the condos weren't too close.

The course did get quite a bit of rain recently, but there was absolutely no distinction between the rough and the fairway (as in they hadn't cut it in awhile) and the green grass was long so the putts were barely rolling.

Disappointed in the shape of the course and I hope it improves soon.

Not a well maintained golf course. Too narrow for play. Hard to find your way around getting into the building. There wasn't anyone in the pro shop, stood there for 10 minutes or so until an older man showed up to check us in. Not so friendly.

Thanks for your comment. I'm Jay, the new ProShop Manager. To respond to the rater … 1) we care constantly working on the greens and the sand traps; 2) yes, the ProShop is in the back of the building; 3) we now have two persons covering the ProShop; 4) "Not so friendly" - we hope that never happens again.

Course couple use some maintenance, grass cutting, stairs down to the greens need to be maintained, as well as Bridges. Sand traps were not white sand, I've played in Florida and was expecting that kind of sand. Course was a challenge but if they were trying to get members they need to do some work to make it worth it.

Hard to beat $10 to walk 9 that will take you about 80-90 minutes maximum. Course is in okay condition. Tee boxes never seem to be cut when I play here. Easy greens. Worth a try if you have a limited time and want to hit a lot of 8/9 irons and wedges.

This is a par 3 course, with two very short par 4s. 9 hole course. It wasn’t in bad shape, but it is very tight and gives you the opportunity to work on your short game.

First impression: no one in the pro shop. Staff person was schmoozing with people on their back patio. Not a friendly man, and not professional. Apparently didn't know how GolfNow worked. It was quite the ordeal explaining that my tee time was for 9 holes, walking, and yes, believe it or not, only $6. The course itself was fine, nothing to write home about. Very easy. If you can hit the ball somewhat straight, you should have no problem scoring well. It was in good shape; doesn't look like it gets much action. Finished 9 holes in the evening in just over an hour. Probably won't play again, but for $6 it's a good way to practice your tee shot accuracy and short game.

I would recommend to save your time and money and find another course to play. Very narrow, poor conditions and rude owner.
The restaurant was just ok, I would have had a better experience on a driving range! Skip this place and find another place to golf
