2nd review.... course has its good and bad

This is my second review of the course. I have played it multiple time over the past 4 month and the course continues to display its good and bad qualities. As I mentioned before, there are some long holes where distance is the factor keeping your score from par.

For example, 2nd hole is a par 3 at 200+ yards from the white (on most days, as it sometimes was set a bit over 180). The tee shot is through a stand of trees on the right and left to an accessible green. The 5th hole is a par 4 at 390y and the second shot is to a very small green that is very thin and 30 yards long... very hard to hit the green with a long iron which is a typical shot from the tee. The 9th is another par 4 at almost 400. Very tough pars on these holes. But as a balance, there are several short par 4s. The 3rd is ~320y,the 4th is 280y but with a very tight landing area, the 6th is 300y, and the two par 5s are reasonable..

I have come to appreciate some of the nuances of the course. For example, on the 5th tee you see a bunker left and a stand of trees right but the trees end at about 150y and open up to an alternate fairway. From that right side, a tree is located about 120y out and very well blocks your approach to the green. Staying left is what is needed but a chance can also be had if you fade the ball right. The 7th is a short 300y but another tree is about 220y from the tee in theleft/ middle of the fairway. Place it too close to the tree and your second has trouble but too far right and you get close to water. The par 4 9th is again long at 400y an the second requires a shot over a creek. Hit it thin and you will likely have a penalty stroke.

As a 9-hole course you play each hole twice for 18 so I have started playing from different tees on each nine. One way is to play back tees going out and upper tees coming in. I also mix it up by playing back on 1, up on 2, back on 3, and so on which give me a different tee for 18.

Look, the course is not a country club and the conditions can be spotty. During the recent rains, the course was very unplayable from several spots along the track but the course had taken on replacing drainage which will definitely help. It is a course you play because the price is right, because you want some practice, or you're new to game and need a less stuffy environment to play on. It can be a fun round but not a place you need to go out of your way to visit.

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.
