I love the game and play by the rules. I have been playing for over 30 years, so I get a little serious with my own game, but realize others aren't serious most of the time and don't let what they are doing on the course affect what I am doing. I like to play all over the place and like the course conditions to be better than average.

Played Sunday, 6/10, walked on as a single and got right out. Resident walk rate of $40 is acceptable. Course is just in average condition right now. Some teeboxes are not level, so you need to search a little for a good spot. Some of the teeboxes are also pretty chewed up. Fairways are in ok shape in most landing areas. off the landing areas, they were pretty bad, lots of bare spots and different weird grasses/weeds mixing in. I had a couple of issues with bare spot lies and the weird mixture of grass/weeds making for poor lies. Sand traps were nice, I found two of them and they had very nice sand and were soft underneath, no problems. Greens were just ok. They were receptive and held shots well, but they were fairly bumpy and putts were forced offline and slowed down due to the bumps. They were medium to fast on the speed. Overall, everything was acceptable and playable, but nothing was exceptional. Great track to walk, good workout, and love the layout.» Close

Played Sunday, 5/6. Beautiful day. $38 to walk. 10:15 tee time.
Check in was easy and we were out on time. POP was just fine for a Sunday, 4hrs, never needed to wait on the group in front and we weren't being pushed from behind. Good pace.
Teeboxes were pretty good, level and green. Not a problem.
Fairways are pretty much a joke right now. Lots of bare patches and hard pan. I was very lucky to get pretty good lies all day.
Greens were just OK. They held shots very well, but were a little bumpy. They were quick downhill, so stay below the hole.
Didn't find any bunkers, but they looked just fine.
Rough wasn't very penal at all, it was mowed down almost like the fairway.
I wouldn't recommend right now due to the fairways. It's a fun course and an easy walk, but maybe wait until they can get the fairways up to playable.» Close

Played on Friday, 5/4, in a charity tournament. Course is in very poor shape right now. I wouldn't pay the green fee at this time. Rough was non-existent, they aerated the rough recently, so it was all dead and had plugs everywhere. Fairways were dried out and fairly brown. We were able to place the ball in the scramble, so it didn't matter too much, but I feel sorry for anyone that has to play the ball down on this course right now. Didn't hit out of any bunkers, but they looked good, probably the best part of the course right now. The greens are still healing from somewhat recent punch and sand, they held shots well, but didn't putt very true. Teeboxes were ok, level and green. No complaints on the teeboxes, but everything else is very poor. I would avoid for awhile and would be very upset if I paid rack rate to play this course. It's a great layout, but seems to have gone in the wrong direction the last couple of years.» Close

PLayed saturday 4/21. teed of at 1:30, used underpar deal for our group, 2 players for $79. Overall a good value for a Saturday afternoon, can't complain.
The course is in playable shape, but it's definitely not perfect.
Teeboxes were nice and level with good coverage and nicely mown grass, no complaints.
Fairways were just ok. they were kinda brown and had some aerating marks from perhaps a couple of weeks ago. I usually had good lies, but they just weren't super pretty to look at.
They plugged a lot of the rough areas.
Rough was very difficult in some places, long and lush, ball sat down and very difficult to hit from. Other places it wasn't existent and could easily advance the ball. I got in some trouble here a couple of times, be careful and stay in the fairway.
Traps were ok. They looked and felt a little hard pan, but they were ok underneath. Found two of them, the fairway bunker was a little harder, which was fine, I was able to hit the green from the fairway bunker. The greenside was a little softer and not a problem to hit from, just trust its a little soft underneath and take your normal shot.
Greens were definitely the highlight, they held shots fairly well and putted somewhat true. I had a couple that bumped offline, but oh well, that's golf.
POP wasn't an issue, we moved along in 4.5hrs, not bad for a busy Saturday.
Overall, I like the layout and enjoy this tight course with some great water features and plenty of OB if you're not straight, didn't lose a ball today, so can't complain. Use the underpar deal, as the rack rates definitely aren't worth it.» Close

Punished myself in the wind on Sunday. Walked on as a single and got right out, showed up at 8:55 and got paired up with 3 great guys (all brothers) at 9:10. POP was phenomenal!! finished at 1pm, incredible, never waited on the group in front and never pushed from behind. Perhaps the chilly windy day kept some people away and maybe the ever increasing higher green fees ($78 for resident to walk). Course is in overall good condition.
Teeboxes were just fine. Great coverage and level, never an issue.
Fairways were darn near perfect, had great lies all day.
Bunkers were nice, not perfect, but never had an issue getting out, found a few of them, one was plugged about a foot below the lip on 14 right hand side of the green, was able to get it out, though.
Rough was surprisingly cut down and wasn't too much of an issue, easiest I've seen it in a long time.
Greens were pretty good. They held shots if they were struck perfectly, but they seemed a little more firm than usual, most had some roll out. They were their normal fast speed, but they were tough to read, none of us could seem to get a handle on them. None of us holed many putts beyond 5FT, crazy. Quite a few greens had many unfixed ball marks, kind of upsetting. Number 4 is temporary about 50yds short of the normal green, It's not really a green at all, it's the same as the fairway and it's not marked very well. Oh well, I finally made a par at 4, lol. I'd be pretty pissed if I paid $200 and had a temp green, though.
Saw the bev cart a couple of times. The pins were in super difficult positions. It dawned on me late in the round that they seemed to be placed in similar Sunday positions to the Farmers/PGA spots. Very tough with long irons to go for the pins. Overall, had a great day and I need to get out there more often.» Close
