Nice course but too much goose poop!

I first played this course on 4/5/2018. The time of year may explain the course's condition. It was covered in goose poop! Gross!

Excellent weather

your basic flat muni 9-hole

This is a decent little course if you're just learning or if you're an intermediate player who just wants to get out and hit some balls and walk around. The grass and greens are usually in good shape though the course is at creek-level and occasionally gets wet. It's completely flat but still most of the holes are a decent challenge for even a moderately-skilled player. Mostly Par3's with a few Par4s sprinkled in, just one 400 yard hole, with some water on 3 holes. Still that's 3 water-shots and 3 decent drives out of 9 holes with a good mix of irons on the rest. Plus it has a nice covered driving-range and a decent pro-shop. You're not going to want to drive 50 miles to play here and it will not compete with any of the area 18-hole courses, not even with Sligo, but it's not bad and the price is commensurate.
