“Good test of golf, especially when the wind is up”
Reviewed April 3, 2014

I have played here many times over the years.

I never spend must time in the pro shop or snack shop so have very little to say about either of those. The folks in both always were polite and friendly.

The course is not overly challenging but you can sure lose strokes quick if you get off the fairway.

I am not a long hitter but typically manage to get around in the low 80's.

I will most certainly return to play this good test of golf.

“Great Value, rock solid course”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

This is a community golf course, but they treat you like you were a member of a club. Great service, price is lower than most, the course is taken care of, really great value.

“Golf Tournament”
Reviewed February 16, 2014 via mobile

The course was very well kept and had some neatly designed holes. I really enjoyed the space they had at the course instead of it being really cramped. The green speeds were moderate and the fairways had a nice roll to them. The food was okay. The only real thing they need to improve is the Gas Powered Golf Carts. There very annoying when someone else is hitting a shot. Otherwise, a very well kept 36-hole golf course. P.S One of the 18's is an executive course and the other is a regular course. (Par 59 and 72)

“Worth a Shot”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Played a few times here, starting in the late morning, on both courses as a single. Sometimes I played alone, sometimes paired with others. Fairly busy place. Walking golfers slowed down the pace on some days. Lack of drinking water a negative. Course in good condition in Nov.

“Good value”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

We golfed with another couple and had an enjoyable 4 hour 10 minute round. The fairways and greens are in good shape. Very nice practice area with driving range and chipping and putting greens. The course was quite busy at 10 am on a Monday morning so it is obviously popular. My only concerns: first, there is no potable water on the course so bring your own (or buy from the cart girl); second, would be a potential problem with the pace of play. We had no problem, but by the time we had finished 15, we could see the group behind us was still putting out on 13 so they were more than 2 full holes behind us. There was a 'players' assistant' on the course but he didn't seem to try to speed them up. All in all, we would play here again.
