Needs a lot of work.
I went out after a few days of rain, so I expected it to be wet, but it was extremely sloppy. Course is not draining well at all. Much of the course is in disrepair. For example, yardage markers are faded and haven't been repainted in years. Many of those had fallen over and hadn't been replaced. OB and hazard stakes/markers are cracked, broken, and the ropes on them are laying on the ground. Carts are a little beat up. Sand traps didn't drain either, and many of them had several inches of standing water (Hole 13 had red standing water in it???). Grass on the greens and fringe was pretty high, but it has rained a ton, so I can certainly understand them not being able to groom them. This used to be one of my favorite courses to play, but it needs a facelift and some serious elbow grease to be worth the drive right now.

Drove from Baker, LA to play this course. It was worth the drive. Friendly staff. Could improve their range though but overall good course.

Cold winter day warmed up by nice course conditions and holiday cheer. Course was in great shape considering all the rain which fell from the sky for two straight days. Staff was great and I would recommend this course to anyone.

Priced way too high
This is a $20 course at best. Conditions are pretty bad. I would go somewhere else

greens were in good shape.
Pin placement could have been put in locations that allowed more of the green.
Driving range is not marked very well with yardage markers

Course is in excellent shape.
I have played this course about 6 times in the last 2 months and it is in remarkable shape. The greens are very challenging and they keep the fairways cut. The thing I would like to see is some ball washers on the course, most don't work but there are only a few throughout the course.

Nice Layout...1st time playing here. Nice layout, Lots of risk and reward offered.
I got one of those R1 drivers and thought I'd just go out cheap and try out the driver...Man was I impressed with this course...NO!... you are not at Money Hill or etc...But value for the money is there and more.
I had more fun with this course than tuning in my new driver. Lot's of holes that challenge you and if it pays off, you're stoked.
Yes the course is not in an Augusta like status...but for quick, cheap play with great staff you can't beat it.
The one down side I noticed and need to impart...Some of the members and regular guys try their best to make you feel not welcomed. After finishing 18, I understand...such a nice course for the money and they don't want a bunch of jerks taking advantage of the reasonable prices for this area.
So, if you play here....Don't be a jerk and play slow. This seems to be a Tee it Forward, While we are Young course. Respect that philosophy and you will love your round as much as I did.
