Decent course...unfriendly staff

Paid for -8 holes and got stuck behind a slow group of 4 who would not allow me to pass even though it was only me playing. I had plans later so I went inside to ask the pro shop attendant if I could come back the next morning to play the back 9. He told me with certainty "sure, tell them Senior told you to come back." I thought all was good and there would be no issue. The next morning I got up early, got ready, and drove back to the course. I went inside to check in and let them know what the nice gentleman told me the night before. The guy behind the counter tells me "I'm the head pro and that's not gonna fly. You will owe another $30". ??? He didn't even offer a refund for the previous day because I had only played 9 holes. This guy was a total jerk. What would be the harm in letting one guy go out to play 9 holes?!? Big deal. I'll never go back to play there and next time will go play eagle ridge (which I drove through and looks spectacular.) save your time and avoid this place. On top of them being jerks, the course was a rat track.

2 Different Nines

A cheap alternative to the Eagle Ridge courses in Galena, the two Nines could not be more different. The front goes up and down and you can score on the straightforward holes. The back gets tighter and is much more challenging with two very tough par 4's. Overall, the course was in good shape and the greens rolled smooth, but the front 9 gets redundant before getting to the back.

This course is unique and one of a kind

Very challenging back 9 as well as the front. Lots of uphill and downhill lies. Beautiful scenery along the way as well. This course is a must play!

Tourists, but treated like locals (well, that is)

Well-maintained, interesting course with two dramatically different nine hole layouts front to back. Laid back, friendly atmosphere. Golfers of all skill levels on the course.
