Golf course was in good condition, but the greens were perfect! It is not a long course, 5500 from the back tees and with the "hot deal" it is a great value.

All in the group know we shouldn't bring outside beveridges onto the course but one of us did and got rightfully busted. Only time that happened. Coincidently, our round was over 5 hrs. long, the first time that happened to me, as well. Too bad the official who busted the beveridge scofflaw didn't keep his good work going and speed up play. I will concede one bust a day is probably sufficient. No Biggie!

Good deals always seem to be available for this course. Sometimes under $30. This is a fun and fairly easy course but you still get to use a full range of clubs. The only drawback is the nearby airport which brings the take offs directly overhead. It can be quite loud but not too distracting. The greens are similar to the upscale Blackhorse course in nearby Seaside.

Albeit at bit chilly, the day was amenable to good scoring since the greens were rolling true and the fairways were mown tight.

Joined up with some regulars at the first tee and had a great time on a really nice course.
