Watering appears to be a big problem plus not spending money to properly fertilize. Weed control on fairways/greens an issue. That said, it is definitely a fun course that will give most golfers a challenge to score well.

Course has made great improvements over the last year. New company is doing well, greens are the best they have ever been. Keep up the good work. Fairways need more work, should be better by fall.

It appeared as though the greens were not cut for a long time; they were very thick. Your ball would make a turn on a clump of grass on the green. The fairways were not kept up. The staff was not very friendly or helpful. The pace of play was awful - the group ahead of us was very slow and there was no one ahead of them and no rangers to be found. The restaurant/clubhouse doesn't open until about 10:30 so there is no place to get a water or Gatorade until then. The practice facility looks as though it has not been maintained for a long time.

The course was not kept up well. The greens were sparse and the rough was penile only 1 foot off the fairway. The food and bar facility has very good food and the people are exremely helpful and nice to talk to.

Bottom line: I would play again, Average course for the area, Better courses for less nearby

Greens weren't too bad, but with all the trees, there was always a lot of debris on them. Fairways were very inconsistent, weedy, and not well groomed at all. The layout is interesting with the 9th green being at the furthest point from the clubhouse, making playing 9 at sunset challenging, but overall the design is nice. A large number of geese have made the course their home, so there are live geese and all of the issues that come from that to the point where it is definitely a detraction and can make for some very 'messy' shots, not to mention filthy shoes and golf carts.

Bottom line: Better courses for less nearby, Worse than average course for the area

This course was a great course the past few years. But that was then, and this is now.

The upkeep of the facility, the course and particularly the greens has degraded. Half of the time I did not even try to putt, the greens were that bad.

The most unbelieveable course markings every marke is all red all white or no marking at all.

No water to drink on the first 13 holes. No water until the 14th hole. It was hot, so did someone else drink all the water? I doubt it. I do not think that there were 10 other players on that course..and with good cause as I have found...Maybe I will try them again next year, but they have lost me for a repeat this year.

Did not see a ranger. Of course, pace of play was not an issue. They had other problems.
