Great if you want a skull fracture

This is the most ridiculous layout for a golf course I’ve ever seen. Tee boxes are right next to greens and fairways are insanely close together. Two holes even have a shared fairway but holes play in opposite directions!!! Stupid! You’d see balls coming at you or randomly rolling down your fairway and you have no idea where they came from. Course was packed so it was a bit like playing the old Atari game Frogger but on a golf. Course. Total waste of $44 and a Saturday afternoon. Will never go back.

Interesting

Confusing layout, but a challenging course. Traps not recently groomed, fortunately I only had to play from one. Senior tees not maintained to the standards of other tee boxes Green speeds on front 9 differ from back. For what I paid I shouldn’t complain.

Warning
Directions on golf now app take you to a location that is about 15 minutes away. Use the address on their website and your own gps.
