Course Reviews


Played course after USGA Women's Am Qualifier. Course in great shape, staff very friendly and food was excellent in Pearce's after round. I will be back!

Leagues start at 4:30 on most weekdays in the summer months. High schools play here afternoons in the fall.


Course is prone to flooding in some spots during severe rainy seasons. Course is mostly flat like most in the area. A few holes require some thought in shot selection, with a creek that winds through the course. Bev cart service on most days, Water stations througout the course, full service resturant. Proshop has the usual accesories, including some clubs.

The recent weather has wiped out the 4th fairway and damaged a few others. Greens were in good shape and fast. Course is well marked for yardage and pin placement. No GPS in carts.

Very nice course, in great shape. Interesting variety of holes, nice routing. Not in a housing development, which is a plus. This is just a really well managed course. Expected pace of play is four hours or less, and they keep people on track. Played Sunday morning on a beautiful, busy day and was done in 4:10. Things are just well done. Didn't see any sign of flooding or damage -- greens were in great shape, and receptive, but pretty fast.

This course is actually pretty nice, but I can't give this course anything more than an average rating, due to GREAT courses out there like Poppy Hills, Poppy Ridge, Belgrade Lakes, etc.
Some of the fairways are in bad shape due to flooding late this summer. Not the courses fault, but they should make people aware of it. I am okay with them charging full price, but they should notify people.
The greens are not in good shape at all. No flooding can be blamed for this, it is just bad up-keep.
The course plays somewhat difficult, but nothing out of the ordinary.
All in all, a decent track. Nothing special, but a good day of golf nonetheless...

Expected a pristine course. What I found were two holes w/ dirt...yes, dirt...fairways from heavy flooding, not to mention the unkept greens. The condition of the fairways is understandable because of the flooding, but I was not informed of that and was STILL charged FULL PRICE. Doesn't sound like an honest golf course to me. Another negative was the one size practice ball basket. One positive was the pracitice facilities.

A golf course for every level of golf enthusiast

I am in between a beginner and Intermediate and their player assistance folks are fantasic. They know where to put your party in the line up so everyone enjoys their time out. They have a driving range onsite to get you warmed up before playing which I find appealing. The only thing I wish they would do different is giving you the option of different size amount of golf balls to choose from on the driving range (small, medium, large) currently they only have an option for one size.
