Married with one kid play every couple of months now that the kid is around, but he is almost three and wants to start playing so maybe I get to sneak out more in the future. Have been playing for 15 years or so, and feel I am an decent player with room for improvement

Played here Saturday morning with a 7:44 tee time. Pace of play was just under 4 hours. The entire foursome consisting of two friends and one of their dads for a father's day round showed up to the course around 7:15 and warmed up. Apparently there was supposed to be a tournament going off off around 7:35 with around 80 people so we had to wait for our actual time to tee off. However at 7:30 once we had all taken a few swings and there were still only a dozen cars in the lot, we went to the proshop to check on getting out a little early. There were only 8 people that showed up to play in the tournament and even going out shotgun with all the times blocked I fail to see how we would have slowed anyone up or gotten in anyones way. We were told that we would have to wait for our time, and they would call us. Kind of left a sour taste in my mouth about the customer service, but what can you do. Went to the first tee at 7:50 after failing to get a call and the starter at the first tee was nice enough told us just to go out.
Fairways were mostly thin to lush, but it wasn't a problem to hit from. Rough was the opposite and mostly lush to thin, long enough to grab the club and make it penal. Some tee boxes need some work and there were a couple tees I couldn't find a level spot to hit from that wasn't tore up with divots. Sand was soft, raked and played nicely. Greens seemed to put slow, one of my buddies dads said they must keep them shorter during the week as he has never seen them that slow. Putted fairly true and held shots well, but the speed was definitely down.
A good time was had a four $40 walking on the weekend I feel it's a good price and worth the fee. I will give a pass to the proshop as I am sure that having that many no shows leaves a mess for them to deal with, but I don't know why they take it out on other paying players. I will return, but probably not for a little bit, as there are so many other courses in the area to choose from for around the same rate that you get treated great from.» Close

Not much to add to the earlier review by Kevin. I like the new look of the course, but I think that the sand in the bunkers is almost to soft and fluffy.
Was nice to play with some great guys from GK, unfortunately, I didn't bring my best game, or even an average game.» Close

Met TonyBarrett here Sunday morning with a 10:00 tee time. Got out on time and POP was a little under 5 hours. Not bad for the time of day on a weekend. Paid $42 to walk on a fairly easy course to walk.
Tee boxes were in decent shape. Some were a little furry, not bad. Mostly level, never had a problem finding a place to hit from. Fairways thin in some areas not bad, but still had good lies never a problem to hit from. Rough was about the same as the fairways.
Greens held shots nicely, very few ball marks and I found to putt true, but the flat stick was working so that could be an influence. However I did miss a couple shortys, my fault not the greens. Little to no ball marks.
Bunkers, here is were I wasn't completely satisfied. Both that I were in had good levels of sand but looked and played like they hadn't been turned over in weeks as they were both crusty. Not a major issue, but have seen better there.
Overall I would say the conditions were well worth the green fee and I will be back.» Close

Played on Saturday morning with a 7:00 tee time with three friends, and got paired up with a nice gentlemen Blair. POP was a little over 4 hours, only a cloudy morning. Ended up having to pull out the umbrella on the 13th hole and by the 15th it was a solid rain, coming down, but that wasn't going to stop any of us from finishing. I have avoided this course for years based on the fact the fairways were always either super soggy or extremely dry, but can see myself putting it back on the normal rotation, as conditions have dramatically improved.
Cost was their normal weekend price of $55 that included the cart that me and one of my friends passed on and walked the course. It is a fairly easy course to walk as it's mostly flat except a couple of the opening holes that cross a street. I like the layout here, and think it's a fairly easy course to score on if played correctly.
Greens were running a little slow, could be from the recent rains, but they putted true. Fairways were lush with good coverage, and I can't think of one time that I had a bad lie in the fairway.
Rough could be hit and miss some thin, with some sort of weeds growing in spots other places so long I walked right over my ball before a more thorough search found it. But it was always playable. Tee boxes were fairly level a couple could use a little work, however I was never in a position that I couldn't find someplace to hit from that was level with good coverage.
The bunkers were slightly hard packed, again could be from the recent rains as they also seemed a little damp. Some played nicely to get out of, others made it could of testy.
A good time was had, and as mentioned before, could see the course getting placed back in the rotation.» Close
