Discount price was good. Clover all over the course. Greens were in very bad shape, a lot of grass missing, divot marks everywhere. Tee box's had sparse grass, dry and hard. Several trees had been damaged by storms and were obstructing play as they had not been removed.

Superintendent wanted to let a group of six play through my group of two. We were following two groups of four and were playing each hole at the times that were on the score card.

The temp outside was near 100 so there were not many playing on this day. Less than 20 cars in the parking lot. Club house burned down and has not been replaced.

I will gladly spend more money to play at courses that are kept up better than this one. I will not go back!

I figured I'd try this place out just to see how it was and wow, this place is a dump.

The fairways and tee boxes were clover and there was no true "grass" on the course. It felt like I was playing golf in someone's backyard and the upkeep of the greens was the worst I've ever seen in my 12 years of golfing.

Since it was only $25 for 18 holes, I guess you get what you pay for. I can safely say I'm never going back and will gladly pay more to play on a course that is actually taken care of and doesn't have trash on the fairways.

If you dont hit em straght your gonna hit the trees. the coarse was very tight with no room for error. It made for a good challenge. It was harder than i thought it would be.

Played when the leaves were changing, and with its big trees, it was particularly pretty.
