Course is immaculate, fun place to play

The folks maintaining the course get an A+, course was in excellent shape tee to green. I was really impressed, a great value for the money.

Course is pretty short, with a few challenging holes. The greens are what get you, not very many straight putts here and several (most?) greens slope fairly aggressively in one direction. Putting/chipping from above the pin can be harrowing.

My only complaint is lack of yardage markers, something at 100 and 150 yds would be nice.

Always Well Maintained, Tee to Green

Great course for all types of players. It's not overly difficult, with the exception of a few holes. 16, 17, and 18 are a tough stretch for anyone, but overall, the course is very fair. The price is affordable, the food is good, and it's always in great shape.
