For off season, I'm not sure what people expect. Yes, the greens are slow but it's expected. We had a great time playing. There was zero pressure with groups behind us. There is a lot of water which makes the course challenging. We had fun!

Very friendly welcoming club. The new owners are really working to upgrade the course. Greens on front still need a bit of work, but overall the improvements are great. Staff are very helpful. Restaurant is great for lunch or dinner.
