What a wonderful short nine hole neighborhood golf course. Well maintained with a friendly staff and very reasonable green fees. Highly recommended for your short game practice or when you may have limited time to play a fullsized course.
Unmanicured "short" course, poor customer service, no parking – Advertised as short course, but ended up being like playing at my neighbors farm. The grass isn't really grass, but more like clover with weeds. Almost all patrons are nearby elderly residents, so a round takes twice as long as all are required to carry thier own clubs.
Whoever owns the club seems to have no idea how to run a business, and is very disorganized. Awful smell emitted from nearby sand traps and garbage cans. There are apparantly only men's bathrooms, which is probably some kind of sick joke from the owner I'm sure since nobody seemed to want to help find the ladies room.
Buyer beware, and keep an eye on your receipt as they have overcharged friends and family in the past. Oh, and watch out for houses along the course, the greens are 5 feet from patio's. Positive note; saw a hottie in her birthday suit in her living room while on the 4th hole.
Horrible experience, disgusting course, no upkeep – I have never been treated so miserably in my life. They do not give refunds, despite not having signage for it. The course itself is disgusting. There was this smell that made me want to throw-up. There are houses right on the course, and there isn't a fence or plants or anything. It was like people were right there watching me from thier backyards and stuff, cause the course is every one of the houses backyards. I actually leaned my clubs up against a plant and one of the homeowners yelled at me.
That's the other thing, I think the course is a specific location for clubs of lesbian golfers and the elderly. It was pretty odd being stared at by so many people as if I'm an outcast just because I'm a blackwoman trying to play golf. Maybe there is some unknown tension there.
