Played 7/27...course is in great shape. Was able to get out an hour early and didn't really spend any time waiting except on number 10. Another resort course, so expectations should be high here. Looked like they were doing some heavy maintenance on a few holes, but didn't really affect the playability of the course at all.
Greens - 9/10. Greens were in great shape. Rolled quick but were still soft and receptive. Little unforgiving on the speed side...would say they were probably a 13 on the stimp.
Tees - 7/10...few places had to work to find a flat lie or tee off a little farther back. Other than that they were in great shape. Didn't come across any boxes that had too many divots or were damaged in any way.
Fairways...8/10. Few places were a little thin but mostly playable no matter where you were.
Rough...6/10. This is one place that they need to spend a little time and work on. Rough was thin in many areas and needs water. Had to move the ball to little patches here and there else you were hitting off dirt patches.
Bunkers...was lucky enough not to find any bunkers myself, but watched the guys I was playing with hit. Looked like there was soft, fluffy sand that played well.
Overall I would highly recommend this course. If you go on a weekend, be prepared to wait as the PoP here is very bad during high traffic times. If you go during the week though, you can get around in about 4 hours.» Close

Played 07/27 at 0812...first tee time. Interesting start to the day...the guy in the pro-shop told us we were first and could go out early (got there about 0730) since the range is closed on mondays for maintenance. Standing on the first tee waiting for the grounds crew to finish blowing the first fairway the starter rolls up around 0745 and proceeds to say "there's 30 minutes before you can tee off". After telling him what the pro shop rep said, his answer was "I don't give a d%mn what they said in there" and he drove off. We did end up getting out a little early (0805 or so), but an interesting start to the day.
Course itself is undergoing maintenance. Only the back 9 is playable right now as they replace all the bridges on the front. Not sure what the normal rack rate is there, but we paid $115 for our experience. If they didn't, they for sure should have discounted the rate. What we played of the course was a fun enough layout, but would have liked to play the front 9 too for sure.
Greens - 9/10. Greens rolled true, nice and smooth, were very receptive and you could spin the ball as well. Easily the best part of the course.
Fairways - LOVE the fairways here. Lush, full, green...everything a resort course should be and more. Would rate these a 9/10 ONLY due to a few spots that were a little dried out and could use a little extra water.
Tees - 9/10...could be because we played so early, but they were full, flat and not too many divots.
Bunkers - 3/10...for a course that paid attention to everything else, the sand was awful. Wish I would have got a picture, but it was like a thin layer of sand on top of a mud pit.
Rough - 7/10...some thin spots and some that were extremely long. Could find your ball and hit out of it so definitely playable.» Close

Played here yesterday 7/24. Before I go into the review, want to give a shout out to Gary (GDR23)...he fit me in for a quick lesson this week and got me back to normal which definitely helped today. Ended up shooting a 79...3 wood let me down a few times and had to scramble to save par where I should have been going for birds.
Ok time to review - not the best I've seen it in the last few years. Seems COVID has really brought out just about anyone who has ever thought about playing golf. Pace of play was okay at best. Had a 2:30 tee time and had to wait until 5 minutes before to get a cart. Range machine was empty, so after walking down the hill that was a disappointment. Luckily someone left a full bucket so was able to grab a few of those while they picked the range to refill the machine. Ended up finishing just before 730 (so about a 5 hour range). Was waiting on pretty much every shot.
Tees - beat up and broken. They had set them up on flat ground, but it was pretty much all divots and dirt by the time we got around. Very few had grass to hit from. would rate them a 5/10 at best for their attempt to at least put them on flat ground.
Fairways - thin. Lot of work on several holes (1, 8, 12) so happy to see they're trying here. Still spongy and able to take a nice divot, but thin nonetheless. Would rate these a 6/10.
Greens - pretty much is always the best part of this course. Rolled nice and smooth. Would give these a 9/10. Held long, high and low shots...just perfect. Only thing I wish is that they were a little bit faster. Would say they were rolling around a 10 on the stimp.
Bunkers - most awful part of this course. Wish they would just go to home depot and buy a bunch of kids play sand for $5 bucks a bag (on sale it's $2.50 a bag) and pour them in the bunkers. That'd be better than the cement that they have there now. For a couple thousand dollars they could at least make them playable. Would rate these a 0/10 and I know I'm not the only one since someone wrote a message to the greenskeeper on the sign telling people not to take sand canisters on number 10.
Overall - wouldn't recommend this course right now. They are adjusting their prices, but even $60 for a friday afternoon is a little steep for a course that plays like a dirthill.» Close
