Just Average at best

Greens are Flat as a Pancake however not Level , all putts are above or below hole. Friendly & Courteous staff. Old Municipal Golf course (1932) tight tee area and green proximity (Watch you heads) for errant golf shots. Fairways in Mid- October 2020 were lacking grass, greens were colored green with either fertilizer or paint.

Whittle Creek surprised me.

Course is in great condition. Greens were super soft and fast. Had two slow groups in front of me which isn’t the courses fault. Can’t wait to get back out there.
