A tight and long 9-hole course

This 9-hole course is long.... sometimes way too long. There are four, par 4 hole that stretch nearly 400 yards -- from the white tees!! It could be even longer. The par-3, 2nd hole is over 200 yards. The two par 5 holes that are reasonable but a 2-shot green is not possible but for the longest of tee shots. There is a short par 4 hole, (the 3rd) but it is incredibly tight with about 25 yards of fairway from an OB to a tree line. Really tough. Throughout the layout, It seems that this course uses length as its main defense and narrow routes as a back-up defense. The greens are on the slow side. OK to putt but not great.

SO why play this course? The cost is low, the opportunity to play tight situations and practice that challenge is ever present, and the pace is very good.

This will not be your "go-to" course but it can be a place to play 9 or 18 holes in a reasonable time frame.
