This course is nothing to write home about but, decent for the value if booked through GolfNow. The regular green fees do not pair well with the course, clubhouse, etc unless they're looking to build a new clubhouse with the overcharge fees.

I've played here several times, I've never been liked the course that much, but the price is a good draw.

General notes - pace, etc:
The clubhouse is simple and does the job. It's not fancy and they don't try to be. They know they're a cheap course but still treat customers well and offer decent value. In the mornings the pace can be decent, unless you get caught behind certain entitled groups. Other times of day the pace can be ok or pretty slow. There's a range, but you need to bring your own balls, so generally either warm up elsewhere or don't warm up.

Conditions:
The course conditions are generally pretty good. Greens are consistent and moderate speed; however, apparently no one fixes ball marks. I was fixing five per green - those where just the ones near my line. Fairways and rough were in decent condition - all the rain helped ensure they were green. The bunkers were a weak point - they needed stirring as it was like hitting off of clay.

Course layout:
This is the part that keeps me from coming back for a fast weekend morning round. I find the course dull. Straight hole - with a bunker or two around the green. That's the formula. There are some dog legs, but for the most part it's monotonous. The fescue that comes in on some holes doesn't help with pace - it's not horrible, just an annoyance.

Straight holes - maybe a bunker or pond out of play:
1, 2, 3, 6, 9 (mostly straight) 10, 12, 14
You'll be dying of boredom by the turn. I was and walked off after 9 on my last visit because it was slow and boring.

The rough was not really cut down and your ball was extremely hard to find which slowed down the pace of play a lot....
