Reviewed on

I've played this course close to 100 times. I grew up playing on this course and recently played it on a trip back north. It's a wonderful old course layout with great contours and tons of elevation change. I definitely recommend this course for any skill level player. Playing early allows for a close-to-adequate pace of play. As the day goes on a 5-hour round is common. Fairfield residents get the best deal.

The driving range is situated on the other side of the facility - if you want to warm up, come early.

After round food is always top shelf.

Pace of Play: Fair

Staff Friendliness: Good
