History and value

The staff was great, very helpful and supportive. We enjoyed the time we were on the course. The clubhouse was nice and clean. It was fun playing this course with my son. This is an old course with lots of history. It is also awesome that it feels so secluded being right in the middle of the city. Overall, I would ould recommend this course as a great value and time.

The experience with the staff is good and the rate of play is nice but some greens are damaged there are some ruts in the fairways that your ball will get stuck in the grass in the lead up to the greens is very I evenly trimmed.

Huge improvement!

The improvements made in just one season have been incredible, especially since we haven’t had the best weather in this part of the country. Kudos to the new management company for steering this gem of a muni back in the right direction, after years of neglect and mismanagement.

Great little course.

This is a great track and they are doing a great job at making it better each year. It’s history makes it a cool place to play. Lots of hills, some fun short par 3’s and the staff is superb!

Super short but super fun

Although this is a very short course it is one of the more fun courses to play in the area. Hills and trees everywhere will make you think about all shots. This could be a really nice course if the people in charge of running it would just take care of it. Bunkers are not sand but hard dried up dirt. Greens have dead spots. Grass randomly not cut all over the place. Like I said love the character of this place but they need to take a little pride in the place.

Nice track

Challenging course for how short it plays. Tight fairways and plenty of trees to hit. There are a couple driveable par 4s if you can keep it straight off the tee. Overall fun course to play.

Beautiful course!!

We have golfed this course several times. And as always it's beautiful! Take the time to think about it being built in 1899.

Short

The course is pretty short, but very enjoyable to play. Doesn't handle rain water very well so if has rained in the passed 2 days or so expect some backsplash from iron shots. Greens are a touch slow, fairways are nice, and the rough is thick. Play in the evenings to enjoy the wildlife.

Fun course

I always enjoy this course. It has elevation changes on many holes. It is a short, target shoot type of a course, which is different from what I normally play. It makes it enjoyable to go for it with risk, or lay up with Precision shots to ensure a par with A good look at birdie. Course was in good shape. Greens were on the slow side but the ball rolled smoothly.
