This 9 hole beauty has three shorter par fours and six par threes. The fairways and greens were in great shape! My wife and I rented a pull cart for four dollars and walked. We are both in our 60's and in decent shape and we're able to make it easily around this little beauty!

Nice course for practicing irons. Depending on when you play no rush early can hit multiple shots. Greens and fairways in good condition. Players need to fix ball marks on greens but otherwise nice paced round.

The par 4's are only at the start and finish which helps keep the speed of play constant. (4's & 3's mixed can cause backups.) The course was very full this day, but the waiting at each tee was not long. This course is fairly short, but in great shape.

This course works well for a beginner as it is a fairly easy straight course. It has 3 longer par 4 holes and 6 shorter par 3 holes. Greens are fairly easy with some slope and bumps.<br/> Also great for someone who has not played in a few months and need to get out and limber up.

Nice open course not a whole lot of water or sand bunkers, but ideal conditions for new golfers. This course is somewhat forgiving, but the greens are challenging. It also is one of the only courses that has a lighted driving range, which is great for late practice. The price also can not be beat, and you could afford to play this course on any financial status. I have played this course twice so far and will continue to play this course. the fairways are somewhat narrow but they bleed into each other for playability. My friends and I love to play this course and the staff are exceptionally friendly so come on out and play this course, it is awesome!

besides the above this is a city owned 9 hole excetive course that needs better tee box markings. Greens were in good shape. Layout not tough and the par 3 yardages were all different and provided for different club selection. Overall OK place to work on your iron game.
