Small but fun course nestled between the Fairgrounds and the Airport is in excellent shape.

Greens putt true, traps are pure and fairways have improved. Yesterday’s hot deal was $20 with a cart. Front 9 played fast back had to wait on the tee from 12 on. Product of a green fee that allows you to play as many holes as you want.

Good course, great condition. Pace of play is slow, some of the tee boxes and fairways/greens can be a little too close for co fort, which is why it plays slow gotta keep an eye out for others' teeing off. Great selection and fun par 3's. A must do, and will again.

The course was in reasonably good condition but quite busy.. There is not a lot of relief in the course with only a couple of holes with slopes. The course is quite compact, which makes it a bit unattractive but ideal to practice your game if practice is what you want. Facilities are reasonable with a good pro-shop, range and bar with food. All staff we met were very friendly.
