Front 9 has good holes but the back 9 is really short. Good conditions but the bunkers need care. Bermuda fairways and greens were good. Walkable and not too long, so I rate this good value for $32.

Showed up with 3 groups with tee times on Sunday 9/9/12. The 4-some in front of us ended up being a 12-some and without a thought they put them in front of us. Some of our group got tired of waiting 10 minutes every shot and left, but were given a hard time getting a refund. I talked with the owner later who basically said it was too bad and they offered nothing in the form of restitution. Our group likes the course due to it plays easy, but we won't be back unless the other local courses close.

Played this course on 10/08/2011. I really enjoyed playing this course, even if I did have a very challenging round. The course is maintained very well, and the people there are very friendly, and nice. The greens are in very good shape to. I would recommend this course to be played. One of the nicest public courses in Huntington & Charleston WV area.

A very basic muny course. Does not drain well and stagnant water forms whenever it rains hard for a day or two. Water collects betw #1 and #5 fairways and smells like a pig farm! Course could be much better if they'd just put a little money into it. Needs drainage as above and on #7 fairway, need sprinkler head yardages, etc., just the simple, INEXPENSIVE upgrades. There is no driving range. Just a putting green and small pitching green. It COULD be a very nice course. Not a challenge for the better golfer.

Fun and easy course. Well priced but could use some hazards or doglegs to offset the short distance.
