I have read many bad reviews on first prize, but personally I think the field is great. When I went there for the first time, on a saturday, I couldn't bring any friends along so I felt kinda lost. But the staff was so laid back that after 5 minutes of being there I felt fine. Some people want there fields very "professional," but I like the staff to be chill and laid back (but that's just me). There were like 4 other people there with me, and we all made a pickup game and it was a lot of fun. People in other reviews said they had problems with the ref, but I had none. As soon as we all had our gear (because some rented), he was by are side waiting until we were ready to play. The guy hung out with us the whole time.
I only played on one of their speedball fields, in which the bunkers were all stable and fully blown up. It wasn't too small, just a little dirty and needed some cleaning.
There was a bad thing I did notice though, the cost. The entry fee was 20 dollars which I thought was kinda ridiculous. There was also no all day air purchase available. But all in all, I give this field an 8.
