Course Reviews

Course is not in good shape. I usually play this once or twice a year and this is by far the worst I've seen it. Greens are 1/2 dirt, had to play automatic 2-putt on 5/9 holes. They're not helping matters by teeing people off every 6 minutes either. On the bright side, the staff are friendly, the restaurant is also nice. But do the club a favor and give the course a chance to recover.

I want to like this course. Nice club house with resturaunt. Pleasent staff. But, the emphasis seems to be on a nature preserve instead of a golf course. The Canada Geese seem to take preference over the course. I find it disturbing to find several greens littered with goose droppings, not just a few here and there either. All of the swampy marsh areas make the course feel confined and play narrow, bring alot of extra balls if you are not a straight hitter. Course is showing some wear at this point in the year. For a few dollars more I can play a full 18 somewhere else a be better maintained.
