Way too hilly

The course is great but it’s extremely hilly. Some shots and slopes are impossible. I don’t recommend for anyone.

Great course for the money

Played here for the first time today, an amazing course. From the staff friendliness, pro shop supplies to the numerous carts coming around for service. Already booked another tee time for next week

Still some work to do but shaping up nicely. Great lay out, love the 100 year old design. A place where you need to think about where and how you want your ball to land. Worth the experience just to play such a historic lay out.

Horrible Course

I’ve played hundreds of courses and this could be the worst I’ve ever played. I’ve also never left a review on a golf course before but this experience was so bad that I just had to. The front 9 was absolutely terrible, the back 9 felt a bit more like a normal round but was still unbelievable. The greens are unbearably small with no room to miss them. If your ball didn’t stick the green it would be lost. For a small course there were tons of blind shots which slowed the pace of play. The pro shop guy was unusually mean. The only enjoyable part of this round was the transfusion from the cart girl.
