Nice Little Local Courde

Nice 9 hole layout. Played in under two hours with a foursome. Course was in great condition for a local Muni. Definitely recommend if you are looking for a quick nine holes on a short but definitely challenging course.

Nice local course

Only 9 holes so you play through twice. A lot of hills, tough course to walk.

Great Course

This was the first time on this course. It is very hilly. They seem to be "under construction" on some parts of the course. However, it was a beautiful day and I enjoyed my time golfing. I had no idea this gold course existed, I am so happy I found it. I recommend to a friend.

Not a bad little course

Got a hot deal on golf now so I only paid 21 bucks..Its a 9 hole golf course that you play twice..The course layout is kind of tight so there are balls flying all over the place..it is a decent course if you are hemming and hawning about playing it just play it..you won't be disappointed.

Nice staff, nice players

play a little slow the first time around 9, much faster in 2nd round of 9. fairways beat up. Greens surprisingly good, and fast. holes packed in...need accuracy to stay on your hole as holes are packed in pretty close. Will be back!

More of an iron practice course

It is a short course, more suited to use irons off the tee and in the many par 3s if you drive the ball around 250. Quick to play for sure. People I shared the round with, very friendly. It is sloppy but walkable since it’s short. No driving range or putting green to warm up.

great day for golf

I find this course very challenging for me, It does not line up for many of my tee shots but considering that it,s fun to play here. The course was crowded it was ladies day but everyone played within their scheduled tee times. Because of the virus some of the rough was a little higher than usual but everyone was enjoying the golf.
