Booked a tee time on line. When we showed up, we were told that the front 9 were closed and we would have to play the back 9 twice (this fact was not mentioned on the website). Okay, we understood things like this can happen....More

For about $50 I rented clubs and cart plus green fees. It was still early season, so not much growing yet or very green. But the course was more than fair and four tee boxes gave you opportunites. I teed off at noon with another...More

The course was in terrible shape; the greens were brown; the fairways on the front 9 were brown, dry and full of weeds; the fairways on the back 9 were better. The pace was deadly slow on the front nine and not a ranger in...More

The course is in decent shape (much better than when the county managed it). The greens were soft and receptive but slow. I hate when my ball doesn't roll out putting down hill. This was a disappointment. I've golfed at this course off and on...More
