A nice layout that needs some TLC

I like the layout of the course, some very interesting holes. However, the greens were in terrible shape. They had recently been airified, but even without that there were many greens that had large spots with out grass. The tee-boxes hadn't beeen mowed in quite a while and on many of them it was difficult to find a level spot.

They’re working on it

Always been a challenging course. That’s why I like it. They’re working on cleaning up the greens and bunkers. I like the challenge.

First Time Playing

Lousy Greens

Overall the course is challenging with long par 5s. All the greens are dead. It was like putting on concrete. Could not read them and not able to putt softly.

Good layout needs work

The course is very playable for all skill levels. We played as a twosome in about 3 hours. The fairways were playable under winter rule conditions. The greens were extremely fast due to dry dormant conditions. I would play here again and recommend it. They are working to restore this course and make it more playable.
