Played the course Sunday morning with usual Sunday morning group. We travel to different courses every week. This course was by far the worst conditioned, poor customer service Ive ever experienced while golfing. The greens were really nice, there were a few nice fairways. But 75% of the course is under construction, including middle of fairway tee boxes, soggy wet grass (Not from rain), dirt (not grass) surrounding the greens, sand traps are hard as clay with water in them. I undertaand the course is under construction for future, but here is my issue: 1. The price for the condition of the course is the same as a nice course in the same area thats NOT under construction. 2. Was told the course was in great condition and there were only a couple holes that were going to play short or tee box would be different because of construction, way more than just a couple. 3....MOST IMPORTANTLY I took to facebook to describe my experience at this course, which I didnt enjoy. I stated how the conditions were, etc. Maybe 5 minutes after posted, staff from the course started to comment on the post, telling me I was wrong for showing (pictures) of the condition of the course and stating that I was downing their hard work. Andrew Roberts, the claimed superintendent of the constriction or maintenance to be exact. THEN the OWNER, Noah Zelnik, also commented on the post from his personal facebook page, and proceeds to POST A PICTURE OF MY CHECK IN INFORMATION INCLUDING MY PERSONAL EMAIL AND PURCHASE RECEIPT. When complained to about the course conditions, it was smiled and shrugged off. Very unprofessional, and to insult my personal business was even more unprofessional. I dont care how nice the course ends up looking or being, I would never recommend this course to ANYONE as long as its under its current ownership.
I really, really hope this golf course is successful. The guy who runs the course busts his butt and is very nice. The problem that I have is the course is just not in great shape. In fairness, they are going through renovations. The rough in some places (right of first tee) is crazy long. Do not hit it in there. The fairways are bald in places. The greens are pretty good although slow when we played it (but was probably due to copious amounts of rain that week). The aprons around the greens are being re-done so expect them to be a little rough. I reserve my harshest criticism for the tee boxes. When I had my ball teed up the grass was about the same height on some tees. Again, maybe that was due to the rain and they were unable to be cut but nonetheless it made teeing off on some holes very difficult. Lastly, there are some tees that have been moved way up (par 3 on back nine) where the normal distance is 160-170 and it was playing about 110. Again....I really hope the golf course is successful and I will come back and play it again but it needs a little more work
I just saw on a Facebook post the owner of this course and an employee disrespected a paying customer. They were very unprofessional and do not take criticism well. They attacked the customer about his work and also leaked his personal information from his reservation. They do not have good customer service by seeing how they attacked a customer for stating his opinion on the course that is under extreme construction and should wait until finished to reopen. Please learn how to run your business in a professional manner and take the constructive criticism to improve your course and business. Thank you and God bless!
I was trying to find out about having a banquet there for my Mom who is turning 80. They put me through to the golf shop to further direct me. They didnt seem very helpful. Patty is the person I needed and said she was busy both times. They took my name and number and gave me her email address which I verified through the website. I called and emailed twice with no response back. Guess they dont want my business. It would have been perfect there since my mom lives on the third hole. They just dont care.
Played the course today. Fairways in great condition. Rough was shaggy-needed work. Greens were sanded after aeration. They should be pretty good after some time. I felt the course needed more water stations. Owner said coolers couldnt be used because of germs? Bar area is beautiful! Such a nice upgrade. Hot dog was included in the golf fee. Nice. New owners seem to be headed in the right direction.
Only reason I give it a 2 is because Ive always liked the layout .. other then that very disappointed!!! Heard about all the renovations and how nice it was, well greens were over seeded and sandy, around the greens was nothing but weeds and dirt, and the tee boxes were horrible... I was expecting much better, not worth the $40, will not be back..
My husband and went over to get a burger and beer one evening last week. The hours posted on the website state open until 8pm. We pulled into the lot at 7:22pm and walked up to the door. A lady locked the door just as we reached it. I know she saw us. Embarrassing. We will try again after the sting wears off a bit.
Great value for the money. Over-seeding has worked wonders. 99% better than previous years. Holes 1, 2, 4 and super tough starting holes. #18 is great par 5. Greens are still a little slow and faster greens would be an improvement. Mark
Nice place. Decent food. Starters are a little bit on the grumpy side. Went to get a ball out of the lake and starter came by and was telling us to keep it moving even though there was not a soul on the hole behind us.
loved the experience ! Greens prefect ! . Fairways almost prefect . They are still working on the course, but I have no doubt it will soon be the best value around ... Cant wait until I play there again... Loved it !
Save your money, go anywhere but here. Fairways really bad & greens worse. Tried to complain but no one in the Pro Shop cared enough to listen. Charged us $50.00, not worth $20.00 Run away, run away fast. John
Played 7/7 fairways in good shape and greens are the BEST Ive played on in years.They are working on the tee boxes and rough and when done will be a 5 star course one of the best in the area.
Visited this golf course for a charity tournament. I cant golf to save my life but had a great time. The course was well maintained and staff was very accommodating.
This course has come way back .... everything has gotten better and better. Its a beautiful course and now the greens and fairways are looking good!!!!

cold weather must have really hurt this place. In a word, terrible. Ive now played several other courses in the area that are much nicer.
I just spent 9.75 for this salad...I also ordered mozzarella sticks and I was given tomato paste...i will never order from there again!
A friend of mine has redone the whole course and facility!! No doubt it will be a great place to play and enjoy the game!!!
Fast greens, course is in good shape. Hitting floaters into lake driving range is fun. Im ready to play again.
Awesome course. It is very remote but if you are in the area it is a great option.
