It's coming around
Decent course on the south side of Dekalb. I started playing here during year 2, it is now year 4. With the addition of a new superintendent course conditions have drastically improved. The greens are almost there, with a few dead spots from years of neglect they're becoming better and better each day. The fairways have been inconsistent and after talking to the superintendent, I have found out that it is primarily because of unreliable equipment, if they find some stability this couse will only get better
Great value quick round
Had heard some good things about this course and wanted to try it out. New ownership is trying to turn it around and it was a fun quick round we actually played a second nine and were able to finish 18 in 3 hours and 15 minutes. Starts with 2 short par 4's but then rest of holes are what you would expect at any other course. This includes, what the employee said was the longest par 5 in the county, like 565. Great value course that you can play quickly. Try it.
Hope For The Future
This is the start of the second year of new management for the course. The course had been dormant for several seasons and had not been well cared for from the it's start. You can see the new team has bigger hopes and potential for growth. They've renovated their clubhouse dining room over the winter, added 2 simulators and the greens, although still covered with top dressing from the winter, looked in better shape than the previous ownership ever had them. The bunkers are in need of a serious overhaul with weeds and packed sand covering them. The fairways were never designed properly here and play about as nice as a well taken care of residential lawn. Hopefully the upcoming season will bring some better growth and care for this facility.
