RGA is a cow pasture. I cannot believe they can look you in the face and charge $45.00. They line everyone up at #1, and you may wait to start for up to 1.5 hrs. We asked repeatedly to start on #10, but the starter said no. One gentleman even asked why they didn't do a "shotgun" start, and after he was out of hearing range the starter was like a gossipy woman slamming the guy because of the question. Before I tee'd off I turned to him and asked if he was willing to say that to the guy's face, and if not he should keep his comments to himself. Never again!

I liked the course very much. It is by no means a 5 star course. I am a 14 handicap player at best, and found this course a pleasure to play. The management was pleasant but not really frindly. I walked on middle of the week and was able to tee off within minutes. I have played this course several more times since then and find it fits my game very well. The greens are in great shape but the fairways are always a little dry. Nice course overall and the rates a reasonable during the week.

First and foremost this course cannot think about measuring up to a course like the Heritage. Not sure what the other person is referring to. It is a decent course with nice greens. Played last year and got into an arguement with the "Head" Pro as the internet price read one thing (a lower price) and they charged us a higher price. I actually should have left but already had gotten some buds there wanted to play. His rebutal was the "person" in charge of the internet was on vacation and had not updated the website so he was not willing to give us the price we saw online or atleast me us halfway. So basically their lack of a webmaster cost innocent golfers money. So freakin lame!!! Left very sour taste in my mouth as they are not the only game in town. The Pro even had the nerve to get into my face as if he was above getting a two piece special to the chin, but I'm older and wiser so I let it be. I've been back once since but couldn't enjoy it as that image popped into my mind. One plus about the course is the ability to just walk on, no reserved tee times..

This course is in great condition for the price ($45). Just as nice as Heritage, for half the price. The only negative is that there is not a lot of challenge (minimal water / sand / big dog legs).

Best course for the buck!

I am a regular at this course for 5 years and every year the course gets better. It is a short course even from the blues, however there are enough out of bounds, dog legs and rolling greens to make up for the lack of distance. The grounds crew is top notch as the greens are better than most $$$ courses in the area. The signature hole was recently lengthen to 230yrds - Enjoy.
