A low handicap player would get good practice for his short game and would find it challenging to score well.

The course was in excellent shape but the weather was extremely hot and the hills on the course took their toll. Great course for cooler weather,

The net for practice shots is a nice feature to get a bit of a warm-up and the 2 hole putting green is excellent. Be prepared to wait for your Tee time even though the first 4 holes may be empty and there is nobody in a waiting line.

Some great holes and was not busy so very relaxed and enjoyable round.<br/> But there's the other side of the course that has some unbelievably bad holes - for example the 6th. How can anyone call that a hole. I defy anyone to play it well.<br/> Grass conditions quite long and ground was hard. So a few wrist breaking shots from bad lies.<br/> Overall its fun for beginners or casual player but don't set your expectations too high if you are a seasoned golfer.

I can't say enough about this course. Staff was amazing! The course is probably one of the best nine hole courses I have ever played! I've paid three times as much to play on couses half as nice.<br/> I can't believe I haven't played here before and I will definately be back!

We liked seeing that tees were accented with plantings of hostas and flowering plants. Also they had well-made lumber steps up to tee areas. Stands of trees in the fairways were neatly outlined and weed free. The owners show pride in their course through this kind of attention to detail.
