Course Reviews


Played on one of the global warming days of February 2017...73 degrees. Not bad as this course for the most part is lower than the canal that bisects the course. Greens were a little long as to be expected, but fast. I've played here before and during the spring it's really wet but in the high heat of August it is usually in decent shape when everything else is hard as a rock. They also have an indoor practice facility too. Not bad price as long as you have the county card.

Played this course in August 2010...one word to describe this course, EMBARRASSING! It's a shame I can't upload pictures here. Greens were completely shot. Divits, ball marks, weeds...you name it, it was on the greens. The fairways were pretty much the same story but add dirt/mudd to the list. You almost want to hit your tee shot into the rough just so you're in some grass. Paid over $50 to ride on a weekday...you won't find me back there. I'd be humiliated to be associated with a course like this if I were an employee.

Short and quirky, the course’s strongest points are its greens. Fun slopes, big falloffs, and bowl shaped bunkers are the course’s best defense and most interesting feature. The holes themselves and the routing, however, leave much to be desired. Typically, most holes are straight and narrow or short, with awkward doglegs that leave you hitting irons more often than a driver.

I played a winter round, and this was a nice venue except for the $40 non-resident rate; too high for a course of this caliber.

This is a popular course.. there is always a 1-1.5 hour wait for a tee time on Sunday mornings, so go early.
