I approached the starter stand 15 minutes before my tee time. The man asked for my name, which i provided, and he quickly glanced at his tee sheet, pointed his finger in my face and said loudly, raising his hands, "YOU ARE ON THE TEE." I told the man that my tee time was scheduled for 12:40 PM, and that I had 15 minutes to be on the tee, and that I would be ready at that time. I walked away as he mumbled beneath his breath. I bought some food from the clubhouse and came back to find that the starter had changed shifts with someone new, and had shared the false information with the new starter about my group. I got the 3rd degree from the new starter, regarding my tee time. He sternly talked to me about etiquette and timeliness without allowing me to say a word. I asked him to please listen, and he finally let up. We reviewed his tee sheet together and noticed that the group before ours also was under the name "Chris", and that was the group that had been late.

The starter did not apologize for his mistake. Rather, he said that I had 5 minutes to be on the tee (5 feet away) and turned inward, away from the window, his back to me.

This experience alone is enough to say I will not go back. I interacted with two starters in ten minutes who were completely unprofessional. The staff was condesending, demanding, and unapologetic. It was one of the worst encounters I have had with someone in a service role.

He would not play this course again.

Course is an average couse that presents a challenge for teenagers and seniors. Par 4s and 5s are short. Very good condition but pace of play is very slow. If you are looking to walk and a 5hr round, good for you.

2.5 hours to play 7 holes on a Sunday evening. Shocking. Way too many groups. No course marshal.

We read about the big re-design and just had to check it out for ourselves. It did not disappoint. Working with a land locked property Mr. Jacobson made it come alive again. Small changes to layout coupled with much needed work to the green complexes, fairway bunkering, and water management all make the new site pop.
Always great to see maintenance workers and supervisors scurrying around sprucing things up, and the general shape of things here was very pleasing.
Atmosphere around the clubhouse and on the front patio made this public course feel almost like a private club.

He would play this course again.
