AWESOME Greens & Fairways

First time playing here and I was very impressed with the conditions of the greens and fairways. Greens were very fast and rolled so nicely. Some tough greens with heavy sloping. Fairways were mowed beautifully, although the rough was brown due to recent drought.

The layout cuts through stacks of maples and oaks on both sides, and pines. Some holes wide open. Medium difficulty throughout.

Paid $25 for 18/cart with use of Golf Show voucher. Come play here, you won't be disappointed.

Poor Shape

I was looking forward to playing this course when i played a few on the West side. Based on its storied history i figured the "new" owners would continue keeping the course conditions some of the best. I was wrong - fairways were long, greens were slow and tees needed attention. When asking a worker why the course had deteriorated she said, "the owners care more about the restaurant..l." Its too bad, a course with a great past should work to uphold it.

great course, very friendly staff

The staff at the pro shop were great. We got on the course a little before our tee time and were able to play at a good pace. It is a wonderful, yet challenging course. Highly recommend it.
