The last time I golfed here, the greens were in bad shape and fairways were patchy. I was pleasantly surprised this time at the excellent condition of both greens & fairways.

We have been coming to this course on and off for the past 20 yrs. Very disappointed at the condition of the British Course and the lack of etiquette shown by the male members. We came off after 9 holes of slow play. Not once...More

Use to be a great set of golf courses. Seems like the mowers have missed a few days. Really a shame. I'm still not going to write this one off, it has the chance to be one of the greats again.

City owned facility. 2-18 hole courses. Very old, greens have been in not so good shape for the last 3 years. (although they are working on them) For value of your money, better courses to play in the area. Restaurant is very good and reasonable.

Great layout and could be a truly terrific golf course. Don’t know if they are financially in trouble, or just have poor management. Fairways have lots of bare spots and the roughs are atrocious. Green are not to bad and traps are inconsistent. Played this...More

Fun cart loading, nicely greeted. Pro shop offered better deal with discount card. Failed to mention there was no restaurant. Would give credit for partial round when no lunch available. British course was muddy. Lots of muck. Greens in nice shape.
