Etiquette

The course allowed at least 6 groups of sixsomes who obviously thought they owned the course. Very apparent they were doing 3 man scrambles for some high stakes since they took forever to line up each shot and putt with meticulous care. We ran into the last group on 8th tee. So we skipped 8,9,10 and 11 and jumped to play 12-18. By time we finished 18, we hopped back to 8 and played the missing 4 holes. The group that was originally ahead of us were putting on 12. So this means, they played 4 holes while our foursome played 11 holes. The ranger was out there and did nothing. The groups even ignored the cart path only sign which we followed.

Great shape

The course is in great shape compared to a month or two ago! Greens on the fast side but soft. Fairways almost perfect and the rough was long and penal. It was a very fun and enjoyable round!

Great course

Played from the tips because it is very short. Only used driver 3 times. Immaculate grounds and course. Greens were in great shape and the fairways were perfect. Nice little track. Great place to work on your short game.

Live in California now, but grew up in Michigan. Always been one of my favorite public courses. I will definitely play it again before I head back home.

Nice course.

Perfect day. Course was in great shape. As always, noisy by the freeway but the course played well. A little slow on the pace maybe because it was labor day. Starters spread us out pretty wide. Overall great day!

Brown

Course is as dry and brown as I’ve ever seen it in 30 years of playing it. It’s still very fun to play. What’s weird is that the greens are soft and slow.

freeway noise

Nice course. A little bothersome with the freeway noise. Course was a little challenging for a beginner like me but it was fun. Will play again
