Tall grass

This course would be perfect if the grass was cut better. It’s early in the season so hopefully they will get it under control. We liked the layout and will most likely come back and play again.

Decent value

Most of the people at the course were nice. Fairways had lots of bare spots. But the price was fair, course was forgiving, and it was an enjoyable round.

Better than expected

Tees were nice and level, I like that. Fairways are not bent grass but they are in good condition. Greens have a lot of undulation in them and they are small. Very easy to miss and then there are drop offs on every green. Very hard to get up and down due to the undulations. Greens are very firm, not many pitch marks due to that. Biggest disappointment are the bunkers. All fairway bunkers are now dirt and weeds. It looks like green side bunkers were in the same condition but they have been repaired, however sand is bright white nice looking but very thin to a hard base. A low 4 degree bounce wedge is needed. I have one but left it home. Price is right $34. I would play there again, nice routing. Went to play with low expectations and course was not that bad. Much better than expected.

Bunkers are under repair

Lots of weeds are growing in many bunkers; thus they are marked with white lines. Some bunkers have fresh sand and I hope all bunkers are repaired as soon as possible.

The only good thing about this course is that every hole has elevated undulating green. Tree lines are mature but the terrain is so flat. You may like this course if you come from Rocky mountain area.

With lots of white lines and flat green surface, I feel like I'm solving a simple 2D geometry problem on a large chalk board.
