A tale of two
I paid $20 to play this course with my Big Red Gold Tours Book.
This course is made up of 9 old holes that semi-narrow with lots of trees and 9 links style that are not so appealing.
The front is challenging and you need to be straight. The first two holes are along side the road anything much right is out of bounds. after that you are challenged by a creek on 6 of the last 7 holes. The course is not really long, but the front forces you to make some decisions. The layout offers three par 5's in a row and then ends with back to back threes, (I wasn't a fan).
The area has received ample rain, so the fairways were in great shape, unfortunately, the weather must have put them behind, because there were mowers all over the front the entire time I played. Additionally all the greens on the front were plugged and sanded that morning, so putting was a mess.
The back is just very straight forward without much imagination. The greens were very dry and hard. Wind is the best defense the back has. Wear plenty of sunscreen.
Played this course on the Monday after the club tourney. Pretty short, but the fairways were very well maintained. Some of the greens were in kind of iffy (like many in this area this year). The fairways were well maintained. Looked like they have a nice clubhouse, but we did not use it. Nothing really stood out as a real challenge or a signature hole.
