The North course was nice. I’ve never played there, so I didn’t know what to expect. Overall, the conditions weren’t immaculate, but it was nicely maintained. The course isn’t long or overly difficult, so it was fun to play. The greens held the ball very well, but I wish that the golfers would fix their ball marks to preserve the quality of play. The pace was good for a Saturday; it wasn’t busy at all, and my son and I got around in less than 3.5 hrs. Can’t beat it for the value!

Almost all local courses are currently being punched, oversees etc. Baker N. greens had been 'micro-punched' earlier in the week. Made for uneven roll....not really good, but better than alternatives. This is a nice course, fairways good....staff nice.

Introduced first timers to this course and they were very impressed. Some patchy fairways, but mostly in good condition. Greens were large and well taken care of. Sand traps (from experience) were in good condition.

The restaurant in the club house had a broad menu with many options. Portions are large and very affordable. Go for the garlic fries ~thumbs up!

Course was in great shape, nice greens.Fairway has some issues that are being addressed. Tee off time was 20min earlier than the actual Tee time. (No time to warm up, thus sacrificing a potentially good round. Some of us are actually trying to have a good score and are not just happy to be on the course.)
