You won’t need your driver. You do need to be accurate.

9/18 holes I didn’t use my driver from the blue tees. Fun little course. I’d play again. I did get stuck behind a foursome of older gentleman that would not let me play through as a single. Caught them on the 13th. Otherwise, a fun round. Hot deal was worth it.

Nothing fancy here, Nicely kept muni at a good price.

Good round

Good value for the money.
Great pace of place and spread of the groups on the course.
Not overly challenging but great for mid to high handicappers.
Would definitely recommend and play again

Nice local course but, pace of play can be slow

This course offers a moderately challenging and yet, forgiving layout. Unfortunately due to current weather conditions many areas are fully saturated and ball plugging is frequent. (mother nature's fault, not the course)
Level of play, and players here; mid to high handicap friendly.
Based this, the facility staff should keep the rough areas mowed lower, or have a first and secondary cut. People spend far too much time searching for shots just off of the fairway.
This is a real detriment to pace of play!

Thank you Tkveton for the four star rating and feedback from your recent visit with us. It's a bummer you experienced unfavorable conditions due to Mother Nature. We do hope you can join us again this season for another round when the weather is more forgiving.

Open and fun

Easily score-able fun to play. Par 3s are tough and long. Hit them in the fairway and youll be golden.

Nice course for 16 handicappers!

Grew up playing her back in the late 70's early 80's. Came back years later after the course renovation, and I love it!

Decent Track - Pace of play great for Labor Day

we've had a lot of rain, rough was long and some fairways had a lot of grass clippings on them. Greens rolled decent but they are pretty marked up. Public track with a lot of novices that aren't fixing ball marks. Starter was not very friendly or inviting, no discussion of the course, etc. He didn't even wish us a Happy Labor day. Woman behind the counter was friendly and accommodating. Some cool holes and a few target holes. Shorter course at 6200 from the tips, but still pretty challenging. Good value.

Great track, be smart off the tee

Nice track, you will need your driver for 12 of 18 holes. Look at the course pictures before you tee off. Placement is more important then distance. Green firm and quick. Enjoy!

Great public course

Come here quite often. Well kept course with mature trees. A good mix of elevation changes, water hazards and bunker challenges. Good value especially with a Hot Deal.

Nice course but...

Be prepared for people to be on the course that have never played golf before. We were stuck behind 2 groups of young men who seemed as though they’ve never swung a club and didn’t know the first thing about etiquette. No rangers to be found either. Overall it’s a decent public course but gets entirely too much play and several worn areas showed this. If you can get it for under $30 then it’s worth a play.

Good Muni track

Pace of Play was good, as 2 groups allowed us to play through, Fairly busy course. Pace of play could get slow.
Course is somewhat short, but here is plenty of challenges. Bunkers, Fairways and Tee box in good shape. Greens role fairly true but slow.
Nice elevation changes on the back 9. tree lines parkland style course for the most. A few holes play in the open.
Basic pro shop, Snacks and sandwiches at the turn. Water stations every 3 holes. No bev cart observed.
Good value compared to nearby courses.

Wet One

I picked probably the worst weather day of the year to attempt to play.

To their credit, the management let us out in cart with no restrictions. They granted us a 9 hole rain check (we confirmed before we went off).

All in all, course seemed fine. Very wet, and rough in some areas was very long as it probably has been too wet to cut. We played the back 9 and there seemed to be a large number of back pin positions.

Looking forward to the other 9 on a better weather day!
