Weird, unique, terrible, fun
I've played some weird golf courses and this one is at or near the top of the heap. It is loaded with narrow and demanding holes that demand compromise by the player because the margin for error is very small. I was playing off a 6 handicap when I played here and by the end of the first hole I knew my challenge was to finish the round with the ball I started with. I was NOT successful, after my ball struck the trees in the MIDDLE of the fairway on #7, there was insufficient width to hook a recovery shot around them, and my Srixon was lost somewhere in the woods on the right of the hole.
This isn't a course I'd want to play every day, and if I wanted to be a golf snob I could write a lot about the oddities found on this course. But sometimes it's fun to play something really out of the ordinary, and challenge yourself to play the game in an unfamiliar way. I had a blast playing there, and I'd recommend you give it a shot too. Just leave the driver in the bag.
The woman in the Pro Shop was awesome and the staff has a friendly vibe. The shop is loaded with golf clubs, mostly of some vintage. It's like a museum of 80's and 90's (and earlier) golf club designs and is worth a few minutes of your time just looking at all the cool old sticks they have.
