Great course, lots of fun. Plan on the course being busy. I have not found pace to be a problem, but there are a couple of blind tees so be careful before you tee off

The immature starters will hassle you if you can't play a round in 4 hours, even if there is no backup behind you. Even 4:10 is not fast enough. So you pay around 30-40 bucks to be hassled by dudes on a power trip. It's not worth your time. All they care about is making profits from power carts. They even try getting 5 bucks for an egg sandwich. Unbelievable.

Had a 3 o'clock tee time, didn't tee off until 3:20. They were running out of golf carts. Waited on every hole. Could not get a full round in before dark. Not worth the money.

I admit I was not overly excited about playing a public course so close to the city. I knew it was going to be packed (and it was). I have to say though...the course was tough. It is a challenge. steep sloping, narrow fairways demand precision shots. We were always waiting at every tee box but it moved along. I was very impressed with the maintenance of the greens. They were better then a lot of private courses. Expect to hear people yelling "four" alot! One slight push or pull could put your ball in another fairway. No BEER! Huge dissapointment! It is a dry course! Bring a small cooler! A lot of beginners on a course that isnt tailored to beginners at all. That seems to be the main problem with playing speed. More lost balls than normal. Overall a fun course. A definite challenge. Cant beat the price and if you improve your score at this course, it will definitely make you look like a star at other courses. I will be back.

This course is a great value! Good mix of some really tough holes and some not-so tough holes.

This course it like 2 minutes from my apartment, so i tend to play here more often than anywhere else. This is a shorter course, but it does have some challenging holes. The club house is nice, and the snack bar has some really good food. My only beef at this course is that there is a par 4 that you aren't allowed to use a driver on. So rediculous. I do enjoy that they open early in the season though. I would recommend this course to everyone.
