Hit this thing first thing on a Saturday. Open at 7. It's not a difficult layout, but it does provide some fun. #2 requires a carry over water, to the right is a field and to the left is hard pan. The greens were in decent shape and fast. The fairways were very hard, good drives in the middle were rewarded with some extra roll.
I rented a cart, but wished I had walked it.
The noise from the interstate is constant, but there is plenty of foliage, so you don't see it. The course sits East and west, so half the time in early morning or later afternoon, you will be looking right in the sun.
I give the course good marks for easy access and greens quality
A Good Surprise
A good 9 hole track. It is well designed and well taken care of. People are very nice.
if your on I80 and have a little extra time stop on by and play 9 you wont be disappointed.
The course borders I80 near the Menlo Iowa exit.
