Nice course. Friendly staff. First time playing here. The course is a city course and is extremely tight and has many holes that over-lap and criss cross. There are many fences guarding adjacent tee boxes. Course is well maintained, but will not recommend due to the extreme tightness of the course.

After 12.00 you can find a starter,I went out with a couple ,the pace was good but they quit after nine . Since nobody was on 10 I went out on my own . On 12 I caught up with a couple they never ask me me to join them . I waited 15 minutes on 13 to tee off by the time I reach the green it was 20 min later.looking ahead there was another couple just as slow. I played 14 and decide to quit there should be a starter to put these twosome together . What a waste of time and money.

On time good pace(less than 4 hrs to play).

Easy layout to follow.

Greens in excellent shape but a little slow.

This is a nice course greens are speedy and true. Fairways always seem to be in good condition. There are several holes that are risk reward holes you can go for it but if you miss you will pay. The staff is great always friendly. It is a bit short but that's were the risk reward comes into play. The only knock I have against this course is the members they are rude to the public and make you feel very unwelcome.

Nice course and very friendly staff. Many short holes that require a lay up shot. Greens very nice but not overly fast. Always find it easy to get a tee time.

Wonderful course. Greens were true, smooth, and fast. Had to use all the clubs in my bag. Great shorter course test. Had a little of everything and was still challenging. I'll definitely be back.

Played this course 4-5 years ago and it remains an excellent value for the price. The fairways are generous with small greens. We were behind a young group of guys who thought they could drive every green (thus my lower rating for pace of play). Another nice amenity is the styrofoam cups of ice water you can take out from the clubhouse.

Great staff at checkin, carts area and in the bar/restaurant. Course is dry, but no hardpan areas. Greens were soft and firm. Approach shots held well. No ranger, so you are on your own. There was a group of six that was holding everyone hostage behind them. Not the first time I have encountered this here and a couple of other courses and should be disallowed or make them let other groups through! All in all a good afternoon on the course for a reasonable price,
