Old school fun 9 hole course in Royal Oak golden triangle near Linwood Ave.

Regulation length with p5 and nice p4. 2nd hole dogleg left requires accurate tee shot.

5th hole has pond in front so avoid being too close othe rise you'll fly wedge over back fence and bounce ball off 3rd floor balcony ala Morelando did back in 88.

Nice length p3's. Excellent conditions, great p r o shop staff. Felt like I was back in the 60's on a nice Sat afternoon.

Recommended!

What 9 hole course gives you 2 P5's? 2nd hole P4 dogleg requires bending tee shot left. P3's are all managable, with 9 being longest. Be careful on # 5 P4 not to take too much club to carry little pond in front of green on 2nd shot or you will bounce a ball off the 3rd floor apt balcony ala A Morelando years ago.

Course in excellent condition, always crowded after work. Flat, but loads of fun. Nice counterpoint to little brother Normany Oaks, which is more mundane.
