Today the course was empty, which is very unusual (threat of rain in the forecast). Usually the pace of play is pretty slow. The greens were a little long today, but are usually pretty nice.

The grill has a very affordable menu and a pretty good selection of adult beverages.

Food comes out relatively quick and the wait staff is friendly.

This course is hit or miss when it comes to pace of play, but when the groups in front are moving along, it is a blast. Easy course with open fairways but fun greens. Nothing fancy but great value for the money. Greens were in great shape and fairways were generally good (just a few muddy areas and a couple bare spots, but overall good).

Adm Baker So is always a fun track and the course is in good shape. A little over watered in spots but not interfering with the game. Greens are better than last spring when I played here last.

Its always a pleasure to be checked in by Keith and his associates at the clubhouse. The courteous staff at the restaurant whether its breakfast , lunch or the special brunches is outstanding. The starters like Robert and ambassadors like Tony make one feel like family. It/s fun to play here ! I enjoy the teamwork at the restaurant someone is always willing to help. The menu offers traditional as well as healthier choices.

I have played here a few times but the fair ways have got "Dry". They need some work for bare spots and sand traps though this course is still a little bit better in shape and

condition than the other courses in this area. Hoping that the course will be well maintained by some work soon.

This course is always fun. Not too hard if you keep it in the fairway. The rough was thick and the greens were fast. Staff was friendly and we really appreciated the guy that came by several times with ice cold water since we were the idiots out there playing in the 100 degree temps. Great value and fun round.
