The course is fair and has two personalities. The original 9 holes are wood lined and you have to be straight off the tee. The later added 9 holes are more forgiving which allows my big slices to still have an chance to reach the green from off the fairway. Pretty easy to see your target and find your ball.This course , like many is working on a budget and utilizes its funds very appropriately. Very lucky to have course where the average joe can feel comfortable. Best course for the money for miles around.

Went on a windy fall day.Wish it was like the day before..When I first arrived, I saw the holes right near the clubhouse and thought it was going to be long, and kind of boring. Did not realize the cartpath would lead me across to 10 holes in a nature perserve environment. Grass was alittle high, and leave are always an issue in the fall, so challenge to find those balls off the fairway, but expect some difficulties in the fall. Really a nice public course with some decent challenges and well placed water and bunkers on a couple hole. Overall I would say firmly to play if able.

The coarse layout is nice..But the Rough is Way!!!! to inconsistent,There must be 4 different types of rough grasses and its so darn hard to get a feel of how hard or soft to swing,They need to keep the grasses and rough cut on a consistent basis.The greens were really!! fast also..just barely tap it and goes 6 feet buy if you miss,wow,I couldn't get the feel at all

I arrived right at my tee time and hurried to the first tee where I joined three gentlemen who are members. I enjoyed their company and they put up with my Bad round of golf. The course is in great condition. Not much of a snack bar, but I didn't go there to eat. I will return and play better.

First time playing this course. It's packed into an older residential community - but that's not really an issue. I hate those courses where you're right up on someones backyard if you miss the fairway (I miss a lot of fairways.) This course isn't like that - so thats a plus .It is laid out in an odd manner. 1-4 and 14-18 are on one side of a busy road, and 5-13 are on the other. Conditions were ok. Greens were a bit slower than I'm used to, but not the worst. Fairways had just been cut and there were a lot of clippings around, which really slowed the roll out down (on those rare occasions when I hit the fairway) All in all, a mediocre, forgettable course. The staff is excellent though and I saw the bev cart 4 times on a very hot Saturday.

Great value for money. Staff was very helpful and a pleasure to deal with. I didn't give it a five because I don't think it's the best course to play but I wouldn't hesitate to play this course over many because the best courses cost a lot more.
