This course is now closed due to lack of business. Talk is they are selling and turning into private club.

This course had SO much potential. I started playing golf her a lot this spring/summer. When the season first started the course was in good shape. The fairways were well kept and the greens were in above average shape. As the year progressed they had, as they told me, a mishap on all their greens when they fertilized, and were unable to water. Most of the greens were 20-50% destroyed. The greens never recovered, and at the end of year were covered in sand, I guess trying to prepare for next spring. The only thing that was decent through the year were the fairways, which was most likely a result of no one playing this course.

If they get the greens in shape for next year this is not a bad place to play, as it's cheap (25-30$) and it does not get much traffic.

Lousy course--no driving range, bad condition, not for the beginning golfer at all. The greens were in deplorable condition, and at times it felt like we were playing in a desert. Some of them had huge brown, parched and cracked spots on them. There are a lot of gullies where, if you lose your ball, you are out of luck. It was sometimes hard to tell, except for the map on the scorecard, where the greens were in relation to the tees. The clubhouse was very nice and had a bar which was not open on the Wednesday we went. They had a few snacks and drinks available, and the staff was great. Fortunately, as with many courses, there were periodic water stations.

The good part was the price: Ladies' day was $15 including a cart, and there was almost no one else on the course, which was nice. Except for the price, I don't think I will play it again.
