The course was in great shape. Pretty open overall with a few tough holes. Enjoyed playing this course and will definitely be back this season.

Friendly and Straightforward

This course was nice to play a round on without going to far on the east side of St Paul (Maplewood). It isn't too long, and doesn't have many big challenges. I'm a 20 handicap nowadays and it was comfortable for me. It's durable, being a county-run course. They have changing lockers for convenience and lockable lockers. It has less trees than many older courses. The bar and restaurant is nice, and on Friday nights has a Korean BBQ.

Plain Vanilla City Course

Goodrich Golf Course is a compact, tight layout set in a suburban residential/mixed use neighborhood. The course is short, only 6,200 yards from the back tees, and not too difficult (back tee rating of 69.9 and slope of 125). Four sets of tees make the course playable for a variety of skill levels. This makes the course very popular with locals, and when I played it many of the golfers were senior couples playing from the front tees. Goodrich doesn't have any major elevation changes, but some of the course is rolling with some slight elevation. The fairways are in fairly good condition, firm and very playable. With a few exceptions, the greens are smaller than you'll find on comparable courses, and they are fast and smooth. Some greens are severely sloped from back to front, and a putt from above the hole that is struck too firmly may end up off the green. Some golfers will find the layout to be quite pedestrian and boring. You go up one fairway to the green and then find that you just reverse direction at the next tee and the fairway is directly adjacent to the last. There are no sharp doglegs, most of the holes are either straight or have just a slight bend left or right. The lack of imagination in the layout is best demonstrated by holes 16 and 17. These are both par 3's, and differ in length by only one yard on the scorecard, 190 yards for number 16 and 189 yards for 17 from the back tee. The only difference is that 16 is slightly uphill and 17 is slightly downhill. The finishing hole is a very vanilla 382 yard par 4, with a straight, flat fairway leading to the green. No drama, no risk-reward here. Maybe that's why there were so many senior couples playing the course.
