Course is closed
Went by today to check on it. It has been closed and everything has been auctioned. Does not look as if it will open again. Was a nice little fun course to play at one time .........nothing left now!
More than it seems
I got an unbelievable deal on GolfNow on this course, but it would have been worth it at full price. The front 9 sits in kind of a bowl and most of it is visible from the clubhouse. It looked wide open and easy until I started to play it. It is designed so that one lake comes into play for most of the front 9, and another small pond takes care of another 2 holes. The course is pretty short, but it's designed to punish the long hitter who isn't accurate (my favorite kind of course). The fairways start wide and get more narrow, and water is strategically placed. The greens are pretty small, and many of them are elevated and sloped.
The back 9 is totally different. It's very hilly, short, and narrow. One par 4 is drivable, but the target is tiny. The back 9 also uses water, rocks, trees, and bushes as hazards. There are also very few flat places on the course. This seems to be designed that way on purpose, so you may want to practice some off balance shots before you play. Unfortunately, that extends to the tee boxes, and that's one of the few complaints I have about the course. Tee boxes should be flat.
I have two other minor issues: 1) many of the holes on the front 9 run parallel to each other, so be alert for other players 2) there is no sand on the carts to fix divots.
The course was in great shape...fairways and greens were quite nice.
Whoever designed this course was clever. There are more challenges that first meet the eye that get progressively harder as the skill level increases.
This was a fun course that is the best value that I've ever seen.
Average course for small town.
Like most golf courses, available finances determines quality of play. This course has the layout available for a nice course, but lacks the funds to take it to the next level. The course management works hard with what they have to make it playable. The tee boxes are level, and the fairways have roughly 75% bermuda and the rest junk grass. They are line with a rough to add somewhat of a golf course feel, but the course itself is relatively wide open. Just grip it and rip it. The greens are very small, but in good shape. And they do have a couple of challenging par 3's. Overall, not a waste of money, but you want be wowed.
Somewhat of a challenge
Somewhat of a challenge and many tricky holes on this course.
