Gunpowder

Blue collar course. Small greens. Very short, and also very tight. Huge improvements made in course conditions with new irrigation system.

Good weather

A Good Course to learn the game...

I have played here countless times over the years. It has been in bad shape in the past, but has been much improved recently.

The greens are in good shape and as long as you keep the ball near the fairway, you will draw at least an OK lie.

It is a short course, but tight in many places. Hitting the fairway often times isn't enough to score well...you need to be on the correct side of the fairway.

nice course, but you'd better play fast!

Nice lillte course, fairly well maintained. However, you had better play very fast (better than 3-1/2hrs for a 4-some) or the starter will come see you. Seems to be prarmount emphasis on fast play and 2-somes.
