There is nothing outstanding here but it is better then hitting at the range....you could play the whole course with a 5 wood,7 iron, pitching wedge,lob wedge and a putter.It has some fun holes but most are fairly easy and a good ego boost.Its an easy course to find and plays quickly(2 hours or less on a Saturday)Easy course to walk as it is fairly short and holes close together.I think its overwatered and greens would be much better if they were rolled...they put very slow and are quite furry

It's unfair to rate these courses this year because of the drought. The greens were a little rough. But all in all, it is a good course for the price and challenging for a beginner player like myself. There is one challenging hole where you need to hit it in between two trees.

I love this course cause its great for beginners as well as moderate players. 7 of the 9 holes range from 98 yards to 180...while only 2 holes break the 200 yard mark. Staff is great, I choose to ride a cart while I play here just because I want to relax, but the course is easy to walk.

Nothing spectacular about Mission Hills. If you are looking for a course for beginners or looking to "try and shoot low,"
this course is perfect. For being in a drought the course is pretty much all green with just a couple dry patches here and there. Soft greens let you feel like a pro and spin the ball back. Has few short par fours allowing some golfers to feel like a big hitter. Lots of fun, good pace, and very nice for the area. Perfect for the random golf outing.
