Not worth the money!

This course is certainly not worth the money that is requested. It's not that its a bad course, its just way overpriced.

The fairways aren't in shape, the greens were not in shape, and the bunkers were practically dirt instead of sand.

I don't think I will go back.

Location is certainly convenient.

This is an older course that's flipped back and forth between being public and private. Being on the north side of town it's certainly easy enough to access. Bunkers can be on the hard/firm side at times, but the greens aren't too hard to putt. The front nine is pretty straight forward and flat. The back nine takes a different turn ... literally ... and incorporates a little more elevation change along with becoming a bit more narrow. I certainly prefer it during the spring and early summer before the drought dries it up.

Mix it in when the price is right.

When this course was open (currently closed due to lack of funding, irrigation issues, etc), it was often a good value on GolfNow. With their watering issues, it could get a bit dry during the hotter months. And it had a couple of interesting holes where elevation change and blind shots to the green could really affect your score. But all in all, we generally enjoyed our time on the course. If and when it's 'alive' again, we'll go back.
