What a dump, played better $20.00 courses, management is a joke, don't think I would come back here.

This is a great track. The greens were outstanding and the condition of the course was all you can ask for. The only bad thing about this course was it is very pricey and the pro shop staff could use an attitude adjustment. I will play here again for sure, i loved it!!!!
