    Got scammed here today. Made to pay 3 greens fees for 2 players because the cashier couldn't admit to making a mistake. Refused to listen to the facts and make it right. Try Laurelview, Hunter's or the Apple 9.

    It's ok for being a nine hole course. The greens are slower than forrest gump. The fairways are solid though. Defently not the course for a single digit handicap. A scratch could go around with a 4 iron being the longest club and break par without a issue. II would recommend it for Jr golfers Or beginners. All and all if u live in the area and aren't the best golfer give it a go

    A great 9-Hole course. The greens and fairways are well maintain. And unlike most 9-hole courses, you actually need your woods for the majority of holes are par 4 or 5..
