A fun nine hole course that has a straightforward layout and is great to take the kids to. The other golfers that play there are friendly and were happy to see kids playing golf, so no impatient groups were encountered.

A friend (who hadn't golfed in 3 yrs) and I went just for a stress free, quick round of swinging clubs and hitting balls. We had a great time! Of course we would have had a great time wherever we went. Wouldn't bother with a cart. They are slower than walking. Backed up at every hole (we didn't care). But ,hey, it is only $10. What do you expect. :-)

This was the second time Frank has turned us away. The first time I called and he said we have plenty of tee times. I show up with all the kids and a large group snatched up all the tee ties and carts for the day.

Now apparently they have a policy that a 17 year old cannot operate a golf cart. I am tired of this kid making up excuses not to let myself and my children on the course.

Even though this is a First Tee programming site Frank will not let you out on the course with your kids. Don't waste your time.

Course is NOT for experienced golfers. It was close by so I thought I'd give it a shot. Group in front spent 10 minutes trying to hit their second shots. One player as trying to give instruction to the player who was whiffing, etc.

That said, it is a learning golf course so it was to be expected. But if you're used to expecting players to know golf etiquette, this course will drive you nuts.

Overall, not bad for a park like setting golf course, however, the grounds crew should improve the condition of the fringes. Some are very barren, lots of weeds and dirt in some areas. Your cart will take a beating on the paths, full of holes and water. Go Slow!
Teeing areas and greens not bad, condition of fairways OK.
Think the greens fees are a bit high unless they improve the conditions around the greens

Executive style course, with a mix of par fours and longer par threes. Greens were in excellent condition. Fairways were in good condition. Terrific hot deal value at $7 for 9 holes including a cart, but even the regular rates are quite reasonable. Half Round took less than 2 hours. Practice putting and chipping green also in excellent condition. Driving range available, but not used this time.
