    I have to say I was expecting more from this course than we received. Paid for range balls, but wasn't able to get them, because they were all out of them. They were still out on the range field and hadn't restocked the ball machine. Secondly, the tee boxes were a mess, the greens were totally a mess, unfixed ball marks all over and it looked like the pin placements hadn't been changed in days. On the bright side, the fairways were in good shape. Pace of plays was good, under 4hrs for 18 holes. Just seams like a cash cow for the new owners. Even at $39 a round, there is no reason to return for the experience they offer. Pay a little extra and go somewhere else.

    The course is okay. Several challenging holes with protected greens. Good shape.
    However, pace of play is idiotic. I am in a Wed league. The starter admitted that all tee times are spaced 6 minutes apart!
    Many times, we have an 8 cart backup on holes when people struggle! All four of our league 4-somes backed up!
    Never again!
    And, like a lot of public courses, green repairs and bunker raking are rarely done well. I blame this on the golfers, though and not the course. Pay the extra money, and go to The Orchards.

    Played 18 on the 11. Course was a pleasure to play. Very little delay, good presence of refreshment cart, 94 degree day. Back nine in 1.5 hours.

    Nice course layout with some challenging greens. It would be fun to play IF ... The course was kept up, the greens weren't so bumpy, the traps didn't have weeds and about 50 footprints each.

    They need to bring in a manager that actually cares about golf and the people playing the course, listens and takes action on the feedback from regular players, instead looking at you like you were a Martian when you raised a concern.

    Supposedly lower end courses like Bruc Hills and Timberwood are actually in much better shape right now. Go there, or spend a few extra bucks and play Greystone.

    They pack the course with as many people as they can... they have no regard for pace of play. The backup was so bad that at one point, there were four groups waiting to tee off. The ranger was no help either (and sort of an a-hole).

    I would rather pay more for a lower quality course course than pay to play here again.

    Great course! It takes some talent to play well but that is what makes it so fun. Lots of different looks for each hole. There are par 3's at all different ranges. A couple par 4's present some interesting challenges. Like the tree at 270yrds in the middle of the fairway on hole 1. The greens are fast. Scratch golfers will love this course.

    This is by far one of my least favorite golf courses. I would rather play many lower scale public tracks than this complete disaster.

    The course is incredibly unforgiving, with virtually no bailout areas. The greens don't hold approach shots, are sparse and bumpy, often times sandy. the aesthetics are poor, with nasty poorly constructed homes and apartment style condos surrounding the course. There's no beer cart. The list goes on and on.

    With so many classy golf courses located very close by; The Orchards, Greystone, Twin Lakes, Blackheath, Cherry Creek.....why anyone plays here is beyond me.

    Let's put it this way. My neighbor called me up and said he and his buddies had an open spot at Glacier. I happened to have an 18 hole rain check in my office drawer. I said "I'm out, but come by and grab this rain check and use it, because I never will".

    If you won't even play a course for free, it says a lot about the course.
