Course Review and Comments
This is possibly the worst course I've ever played. The first thing you see when you pull in is a tennis court with no nets and weeds growing in patches through the cracks in the clay. Then you side step the 3 stray cats trying to get food out of the overflowing trash can. The driving range has no distance flags and you have to wait every few minutes for people to clear before you resume hitting because the 1st fairway and driving range share the same fairway area. The greens look horrible and have massive dead patches as well as crab grass spots that have been stamped into the green. The bunkers do not use sand. They use fill dirt. Not kidding...as in loaded with rocks and clay...fill dirt. The greens are way to small for this course. They would be appropriate on an exec course but not for a par 72. I rolled my ankle stepping out the cart as I stepped into one of several random holes in the ground. There are no hazard markers, directional signs or tee box indicators. The fairways are the best part of the course and they are sparse at best. I paid $27 to play and that was too much for this place. $10 maybe? I can't believe anyone would pay to play here a second time much less join as a member. They did have water stations on every few holes which was nice. I was playing with good friends so we had a good time but if I had come out as a single I would have left after a few holes hoping I could get a tee time at an actual golf course.

Dont let the words "country club" fool you!! I payed $38 to play a cow pasture. The greens are advertised as bent, but they are a mixture of bent and bermuda. Roll ok but look horrible. The

President of the AAG is a Spineless man. All those who work here i feel bad for because it is such a bad facility. I even saw a kid pick the range with a cart that had no cage to protect him from ball

The greens were a little fast for the average golfer. However, they were excellent for those desiring to play tournament stlye greens, very fast downhill and moderate uphill. The best thing about the

My reason for saying no on the last two questions is because the course, especially the greens are unfair to the average golfer. When I play it is to have fun and try to score a decent round, with th
