The Quarry at Crystal Springs
Excellent course, don't go during rush
Sorry but booking foursomes every 10 minutes does not work. So if you plan on playing this course during peak times allocate 5 hours minimum.
I like the course, the fairways and tee boxes are excellent for the most part. Challenging layout for all levels. For such a nice course no one seems to fix divots so the large and undulating greens are spotty.
Not a lot of elevation changes. Lots of water. Lots of sun on 10-16 be prepared.
The staff isn't really friendly here. I had a rain check and they wanted me to pay 17 cents. When I said I'd have to go get 17 cents they decided it was ok. I received the rain check because it took 1 hour to play three holes when I went while they were busy.
I forgot a polo shirt in the back of the cart and went back to get it when I realized, before driving away, it was in the trash.
I like the course, but not the staff or pace of play when busy.

Hadn't played CSQ since they revised the layout. (Old layout had the turn at the current clubhouse.) Overall, the course was in good shape. A few fairways had some bad patches or ground under repair. Greens and tee boxes were surprisingly hard given all the rain we've had (not that it was a problem, just an observation). The house with the bathrooms, water & vending had 3 water jugs and no water on a very hot day. That wasn't great.
We had a regular playing in our foursome, so that was helpful in navigating around the course, but a word of advice to those playing for the first time, lay up or play to the front of the green. Nothing good can come of going over the greens on most holes. Also, the new layout does not have a "turn". You just keep playing, so stay hydrated.

Course was in ok shape. Greens were rough with lots of ball marks. Half of the tee boxes had little to no grass. Fairway had bare spots. Not worth the price. There was no water at the turn or anywhere else on the course.

A Pleasant Surprise
The course was well kept and greens, for the most part, stayed consistently quick. After driving past the landfill and the Hollywood casino, I was expecting the worst. But as I looked down the fairway of the first hole, all I saw were trees, lakes, and bluffs. I never saw "urban" on the course. It was a real treat. We got a GN Hot Deal for $20. It was well worth the $20! The fairways and greens are in good shape. The tee boxes are "used". We also saw some new tee boxes under construction. Should be a few weeks before they are playable. The green's crew was out in force putting in new mulch and cleaning the garden areas. The course looked nice! The clubhouse is small. I guess the old clubhouse was destroyed by a tornado a few years back. There is also a nice outside patio to enjoy a 19th hole brew. Never had a beer cart find us on the course. It was a Wednesday afternoon though. Lastly, the driving range is huge, with both a covered section and uncovered section. 18 holes took us 3 hours and 20 minutes to compete, which added to our enjoyment. Lastly, some of the fairways can be narrow, but most are forgiving. Bring a few extra balls for the water around the course. Overall, I will play this course again.

mostly above average
The layout and views are awesome. Three par threes in the first few holes unusual. Fairways and greens in great shape. However the tee boxes were barren in many spots. It seems that their grill is closed.

Good Value esp. for a holiday
Everything was good at the course from the staff to the course. Will return often, have a bunch of balls I still have to find.

I booked this tee time for me and a friend, we enjoyed ourselves greatly. The course was in great shape and there wasn't anyone for a couple of holes in front of behind us. I highly recommend this course.

This course looks great. It has fun challenging holes. The greens were in poor conditions and not one beer or food cart the whole time.
