Excellent Condition

The Navy Destroyer course was in the best condition of any course I've played this year. Fairways like carpet, fast greens with enough contour to keep one's interest. Fast pace of play in the early morning. Going back soon

여름 골프

오늘은 노동절이라 그런지 풀북킹이 되어서 오후 2시에 시작해서 17홀 까지 5시간 30분 소요 했습니다

마지막 18홀은 어두워서 못치고 나왔네요

앞으로 휴일에는 가지않을 생각입니다

Great experience

First time playing here but won't be the last. Tip of the cap to the greenskeepers. Greens were an absolute A and fairways a B+. And I'm picky about condition. Tee boxes in good shape, only criticism is there are a couple that could be more level.

Our threesome played in 4 hours even, even though it was moderately busy, so no complaints there either. Good value imo.

Good layout

Played with two nice gentlemen. Fairways are very good balls sits up well. Greens have true roll and some greens have excellent undulations so you need to place your ball below the holes to score well. The front nine has only one par three for a 37 par while the back nine has three par 3s for a 35. The back nine backs up a bit staring on hole #9 with three groups of threesomes.

I understand this is the course that Tiger Wood started golfing with his dad when his dad was in the military.

Good clubhouse I utilized their shower but you need to bring your own soup and towels. Will play it again.
