played in a few tourneys here. not a quality course at all. wouldn't recommend it. could very easily be a fun course if it was maintained at all and very easily be a good course if it was maintained well. neither are happening as of late. Just to give you a mental picture. The billboard in town advertises a free golf membership for joining THE POOL. golf is the side show.

4/25/09 - Yes they had new carts, at least the one I had. I'd give this course a "C" rating.

What its needs is maintenance. The new management needs to hire a super that understands the need to mow the fairways. Most courses mow on Thursdays so it's perfect on Saturday. You also need to move the cups occasionally, theses obviously were in the same location all year since there were no old cup rings on the greens.

This is a very rough diamond that could really shine. I loved the granite markers on every hole. My advice to the new management - hit the membership up for some more money - but in this condition you can't charge more than the $30 your charging now to guest.

I'll come back next year hoping to see improvements.

Played here for the first time last week. I will say this, this is a tough course. Especially the back nine, there are a couple of long hilly par 4's and 5's. The upkeep of the place wasn't too bad, but I've seen much better. Some of the tee boxes could've used a mow. It has some bunkers, but they didn't look too good. Some of them had grass growing up in them. Also the cart paths aren't marked very good as to tell you where the next hole to go to. The greens were in really good shape. I guess that's the only thing they really seem to maintain. Also some of the grounds crew was out there, and they were courteous. If you ride a golf cart, be sure you get one with a charged battery. I got one, and it almost went dead on me going up 18, which goes uphill to the green. I'll probably play here again, but will drive around the course to see if it is any better maintained before I do.

12-31-07-played here on 12-29-07. I apologize, but I think I overrated this course from my previous review. The course was in horrible shape from the last time I played it. This course does not drain good at all if it rains. Also, there were leaves, EVERYWHERE. I couldn't find my ball either because of the leaves, or I plugged the ball into some mud. This course could be a great place to play, and it is a challenging course, but it needs some cleaning up. As I stated in the last review, the only thing going good for this course are the greens. For the price, it could be a great value if the upkeep on this place was any better. I also think they need to replace the batteries in all their carts, or charge them at night. I got another cart that was s-l-o-w. And if you go off in some wet spots in one of these, forget it, it ain't got enough juice to get you out. Overall, I didn't enjoy my last game here and I don't think I will return to this course.
