This course is flat, easy to walk with very few trees or hazards ... making it very forgiving. I took a beginner golfer and we had a great time. The pace was slow enough she didn't feel challenged by others wanting to play through and no matter where she hit the ball it was usually playable. The folks in the office were great. More advanced golfers will probably find this course with few challenges and little to hold their interest.

Municipal course, in pretty good shape. They have water hazards but no sand traps. Only 2 par 3s and some long par 5s. Great course for beginners and seniors. I wish Bend had an affordable course like this. Also you never tire of the spectacular Cascade views.

great fairways, wide not to much water so I didn't lose so many balls. greens are lumpy and have bare spots . roll inconsistant. Got great deal on golf now.<br/> I really like this place though. If I lived closer I would play here a lot.

This course has awesome views of the snow covered cascade mountains. The courses is flat and very playable. The greens need some improvement, they were ugly and lots of dead spots. Fairways were open and almost all holes were straight. Would be good for a beginner and would be a feel good for the more experienced.

Course was in good shape. As a high handicap player, it was a great course to play. Not very many water hazards or bunkers to deal with. Greens were in good shape. Staff was very friendly. Played 27 holes for less than $20. Will play again when back in the area.

You can spray your tee shots and still have a shot at the green. Disappointing pin placement system. All red flags w/ no front/middle/back rotation. Greens inconsistently slow and slower w/ several dead grassy areas.

If you are in the mood for a pristine, manicured course this probably isn't for you. If you want a great bargain and are willing to overlook an occasion rough tee box or green this is a great value. One word of advice is to don't get a cart or if you do, drive it slowly. The ground is rough enough to beat you and your cart up. The view of the mountains is great. The course itself isn't much to look at. If we lived closer I would probably play this course fairly often.

For the price, you can't beat it. It is wide open so perfect for a couple friends having fun. The holes are pretty long though so still need to hit good shots.

It was a great little course. No sand traps and very little water. Less trees made it hot if walking. Great for the price. We will go back and play again for sure.
