Better than Expected
This was a fun course and the price was right. I don't live in Roswell and it was my first time playing it, but I would play it again. Greens were in good shape.
The course is not alien to golfers
It hard to be in Roswell and not make an alien joke, but the home of Nancy Lopez hosts the course she grew up on. For a novice like me, that in itself made it worth playing.
A public course, reasonably priced and in good shape made it a memorable experience.
Following in Nancy Lopez' footsteps
I'm told this was the course Nancy Lopez grew up playing, but it's of course, different than when she played the course in the 1970s. Renovated in the last few years from its original nine-hole configuration, the back nine is particularly strong three strong par 5s and some signature water features. Being in Roswell, this muni takes advantage of the alien theme with a couple items in the pro shop, but it certainly isn't overdone. Bentgrass greens also rolled very well.
