A Nice Short Course for Locals

Despite the heavy stuff that started coming down while we were on the 7th hole, I really enjoyed my first round here. It's short and easily walkable, with a great backdrop of the mountain.

The first and third are par 3's and a few more holes later on are marked as par 4's, but could easily be reached in one shot. You still can break out the driver on a few holes, but many can reach the green in two without it. Mostly I was impressed with the quality of the course. It seemed like it was pretty well maintained in most parts.

Had it been a nicer day, I'd imagine that the course could get backed up a bit with the lack of length. Still, $20 for nine holes on a Saturday is a great deal anywhere.

Good weather

short but not simple

I live near the course and gotta say it's a far cry from the old pitch and putt, fairways drier than a desert of a dozen years ago. While not long, it does give you a chance to use quite a few clubs. Odd layout - a par three to start- and two holes fairly identical back-to-back (7 and 8#- the two newer holes 4 and 5 are longer but unimaginative. The good news is that there is a large driving range- quick access for food and drink #Aunt Chiladas) and the price is fair. The course presently is plush- and the greens smooth and well mainured. Maybe best of all is the walker freindly aspect -very level and not at all rugged.
