by sandzman I had a good day
I teed off from the blue tees, I think I hit avg 220-240 yd drives(been lots of humidity lately), avg iron distance, chip ok and putt ok, and get out of sand traps pretty good using my 60 degree lobber. The course is a little crude what with more weeds now than I'd like. But the ground crew is mowing feverishly, and it looks groomed, just you need to use some common sense if you land on a mowed weed(fairway/green) and you don't like it...,. I shot a 37 and a 40 for a 77, first under 80 in years for me. It's because I was driving 'under control' and my long irons were more controlled than before. I took an extra few seconds planning chips and putts. So, for a budget course it's a good ole course, lots of fun, and will keep you coming back. I support the 'home team'. One day it may get more pristine, but it takes a little time and money, this course is making progress, you ought to check it out, and it has a driving range too. Presenlty, Daily rate is $29 and Twilight rate(aft 3) is $20. The money saved you could dine out.

Would never play here again... The greens were terrible and the course shape was very bad.

Rated 1 out of 5 by matthew010 Waste of money
The staff was very friendly and accommodating and that is the only good thing about this course. The greens were sand traps, the holes hadn't been changed in so long grass was growing over the hole. There wasn't a fairway. We paid $18 and it wasn't worth it!!!

Course is in need of major work. But to their credit, they just bought the course a few months ago.

I've been getting the word out about the greens getting aerated/sanded/cut short, ....thought people knew what I was talking about, guess not. But, they are fairly predictable, I've seen other municipal courses struggling with greens, it can be a common occurance. I think they are the best I've ever seen 'while' being aerated, I still love playing out here. I shot an 84 from the blues today by hitting straight simple drives(they always go farther that way too), my irons were awesome, chipping was only 'not so great' because the greens were more often than not 'more' slippery than I thought. The close by roughs were ok, I found my ball with no trouble. I actually have learned to stay out of the mounds on the edges of the fairways, so I only lost one ball(see, this course improves your game; weeks ago I was losing 5 or 6 a round). I landed in a trap on hole 12, you know they're a little hard from watering(and occasional rain) and had no problem with my 60 degree lob wedge cutting through about 2-3" inches behind the ball and lifting the ball up and out landing 5' from the hole and putted in. Who cares about a few dead weeds in the sand, maintenance is on a priority basis for now, greens are top priority. I love this discount course which I 'CAN AFFORD TO PLAY ON'. Maybe others can afford $70 for a round, not me, I was layed off a year ago and also recovering from an accident, my best rehab is the general exercise involved in golf not to mention the wilderness scenery, clouds and sunsets. So, when you see the awful reviews, take them with a grain of salt, 'Rome' wasn't built in a day, and it also takes a long time to build yourself into a good golfer, and that means playing more on courses that you CAN AFFORD, experiencing not always the 'perfect' conditions(golfers have to be ADAPTABLE), one of the key ingredients, and the golfers here are pretty friendly anyway, they keep up the pace or let you by, how many places do that. I just remembered, out west how at my main course ALL THE FAIRWAYS WERE HARD PAN BASICALLY NOTHING THERE and if you could actually hit the ball clean then the ball bounced and rolled another 70 yards(better hope you didn't slice) cactus is no fun.

Horribly kept course. They greens at MOST had 20% grass, the rest was sand. Most greens were completely sand. The rough was ROUGH but on a plus side the fairways were fairly well kept. I wouldn't play here again for free just because it's not worth the time.

Weeds everywhere including greens. Sand non existent in the sand traps because it was all on the greens. Impossible to putt because of sand and weeds. It is the worst course I have ever played. Ever. The biggest clue was we arrived at 8:00 AM with no cars on the lot and left at 11:30 with no cars in the lot. No water on the course. No pro shop to buy any gear (ie golf glove).

Rated 4 out of 5 by sandzman I played this afternoon
Here's the scoop, I shot an 85 from the tips, the course is not perfect but they're working hard to improve it. You have to hit straight drives, if you can't, then try your 3 wood. The fairways seem a little narrower now but are clearly marked with yardage poles, the nearby roughs are almost too shaggy but you'll 'probably' find your ball there, but if you hit a little wide into the fringe mounds then just forget about ever finding your ball. I know technically there are rules on lost balls, but playing here, for now, because it's a discount course, you can probably just drop a ball somewhere nearby and just keep on going...and just have a fun day, enjoying yourself and working on improving your straight shots. Fairway irons and chipping played pretty good. Putting has some issues because of some greens going through aearation. But you can tell if the greens are slick, average or a little slow or bumpy. Another one of those times where you can just have fun if you know you would have made a put normally. Anyway, I still think it gets better all the time out here, just stay on the fairway, or make sure you bring some extra balls. Nobody anywhere is working harder to provide a good course at an affordable cost than this crew! If you support golf in general, then you should check out this reasonably priced full size course with a driving range and putting green.
