Fantastic Muni

Tees, fairways, greens were great! Bunkers could have been better, but we got slammed with rain recently. Love the course, super fun!

Very good course, new clubhouse, course maintenance could be improved

Course with great design and history. City has taken over and the budget must keep them from robust maintenance. Greens are in good shape. Trees and landscape suffer a bit. Great deal for the $$. New clubhouse as well.

Meh

Expensive for the value. Pace of play was abysmal. Ranger asked us to play faster, even though we hit into the group in front of us all day.

Muni Gem

Man, what an experience. Amazingly clean facilities, really friendly staff and course is in great shape. Not difficult, which is more fun, and a straight forward test of golf. Would go again anytime. Don't let the surroundings fool you this place is worth it.

Well Designed Track

This is a well-designed course and has been maintained well. RTJ Sr. Knew what he was doing of course, so no surprise. What I was surprised by was that there were tee times available at the last minute. It’s in good condition. The rough is pretty thick this time of year.
