Walked

This is a true hidden gem! Friendly, accommodating staff, easy access (although off the beaten path), mostly played by locals in the area. The course conditions are outstanding, tee to green. Beautifully laid out, through prairie and pine forrest, with a couple holes crossing a ravine as a surprise, a real bonus.
Exceptional value! Played it following the OCT Woods 9, somewhat more pedestrian layout, but with likewise excellent conditions and course upkeep.

Locals Favorite

All the locals begin by playing the woods. It is the favorite for the members and the locals. Older part of the course with lots of mature trees. In recent years this nine has not been in good shape. However, recent changes have brought this course back into great shape. The new contour shapes of the fairway with hourglass approaches for the greens really improve the quality of this nine.
