Very wet round...
I told my dad I wanted to play as much golf as we could during the week I was in town. This was the very first course he took me to and we played it twice in the first day.
We started in the morning (had one of the first tee times. The area had major rain the night before so the ground was not holding all the water too well. Greens were flooded (green on #7 was half underwanter), all the cups basically became ball washers, the seemed to roll very slowly. Fog that morning added difficulty to the morning round.
The evening time was a much more enjoyable round. The water had dried out, allowing for more carry and putting became more "normal". Between the two, that is why I gave the course an overall "Fair" level.
I would definately play this course again next time I visit, as long as it hasn't rained recently.
Not too bad
This course is only 9 holes. The facilities are very basic. Small clubhouse and practice green. Greens are in great shape and the tee boxes, fairways, rough, and bunkers are not horrible. Great if you're just starting out. Only fun if you're experienced. Affordable and fun.
Great for a family outing
This course is a shorter course which is great for beginner golfers or if you want a leisurely round of golf. The first hole opens with a 100 yard par 3 which is a nice relief compared to a long hole. There are some holes with water than can make the course more challenging, but over all its a fairly simple course.
