Greens were terrible
Again- I find a decent deal for a few of my buddies to go here and give it a go. Have had bad experiences with staff in the past (rangers constantly heckling claiming slow play or that we had beers we didnt buy from the course). Either way, I live in the area, like the course and wanted to give it another try. For the price we paid, no one could argue. This time, i will say that the staff was much better. and i suppose that was the only positive as the greens on this course are in TERRIBLE condition. Midway through the round we just all started writing down 2 puts and calling it good. Id say 6 out of the 18 greens were actually playable.

Interesting, narrow course. Shame about greens.
Interesting old style course with narrow fairways cut between the woodland meaning anything other than 'out of the middle' drives are punished and lost balls are commonplace. It's a nice challenge but there is 1 problem - the greens are in terrible shape, which is a shame because in the places where they are OK the greens are fast and challenging. It's worth playing once, but given the choice in the area you're not likely to play it much more than that in a season.

Greens and Bartender Need Help
All in all it's a great course but the greens are a mess and we have yet to have a bartender that can actually make a drink and get a warm hot dog to you . The bartenders have been very unfriendly Not a big concern when they bring you cold food that should be hot. The golf Rangers are friendly and nice as well as the people working in the pro shop.

Played the course in 2014 and it was in excellent condition. Went back earliy this year, May 1st, and found that many of the greens are damaged from the harsh winter conditions. Many greens were not puttable.. I thought they should warn people ahead of time and tell them what they are doing to repair.

Slope and Speed
Speed of greens are nice a fast! FAST! The greens have some good slope to them too. DO NOT BE ABOVE THE HOLE. EVER!
Will play again and more often.

Fun Course.Good Value fpr the money
Played this course a number of times and it has always been fun. Not a difficult course but not too easy either. A fair, fun course for the average golfer. Never seems to be too busy, which is nice. Fairly well manicured, although they had aerated the course earlier in the week so some of the greens were a little rough to putt on, but it is a necessary maintenance procedure that understandably has to be done . Can't complain for $19. Great weather, fun course so a great day.
