OK course for the GolfNow price ($20.00). Would not pay the regular greens fees (too much) for this course. At best average with chopped up greens and lots of crab grass in the fairways Would definitely play again at the GolfNow price. Looks like it use to be a country club course gone public due to lack of interest.

Nice guy in the club house. No players on the course. Unfriendly group in the grille. Too much crabgrass. Looks like it was a good track back in the day but clearly needs some maintenance. Better options to choose from
