I played here Thursday 8/6/2020. Had 9:50 tee time and was off on time and got around the course in a foursome in 3:55. The staff were courteous and patient as the clubhouse is currently undergoing a major painting and repair project, so routing and availability of some resources were different or difficult.
I don't like to review negatively as I always consider a day on a golf course a blessing and privilege, but this day was disappointing. Nearly all of the tees are spotty at best and some were a bit shaggy as well. The fairways were ok, but not lush and again spotty in a lot of locations. Greens are somewhat slow. I thought they seemed thick with lots of grass and wondered if thinning it out a bit would have given it a better chance. They were also quite bumpy. The biggest disappointment were the bunkers. There is no sand in any of them! They are just hard packed dirt at the moment with large trenches in them which appear to be some kind of drainage.
Honestly, it just felt like they had given up here. I understand all of the challenges we currently are dealing with, but rates don't reflect any of the short comings and no one on staff ever mentioned the traps or anything like that. With some of the best views around and a somewhat challenging layout this course could be a jewel, but without some serious focus and dedication to bringing it back, it may be short lived. I heard a lot of grumbling afterwards while having a cocktail on the makeshift patio.» Close

I played on Friday 7/3/2020 and had a very enjoyable time. We teed off at 6:20am and never waited on a tee and were never pushed although they stuck to their 10 minute intervals. We finished at 9:50am, before it even began getting hot.
The course in general is in very nice shape. Tee boxes are all level with no bare spots and were nicely taken care of. Fairways were also vey nice, few bare spots at all and was nicely taken care of. The greens were receptive and true and actually a bot faster than I would have expected at such an early time in the day.
If there was one complaint it would be the sand traps. They are very shallow, small pebbles throughout and although the rakes are out now, very few are using them.
My last thought is that now that I'm 60, the weekday rates are fantastic. Playing 18 holes on this type of course for less than $40 is as good as it gets!» Close
