Small town university golf course

Point University Golf Club is an 18 hole course in Lanett, Alabama. It was built as a 9-hole course, with 9 new holes added several years ago (the old 9 is the current back 9). This course is in my hometown, and I have played it many times over the years. The course is a tale of two sides, both in layout/challenge and condition. The front 9 has a good mix of easy and hard holes. It is definitely a different design from the old back 9, with more challenging greens and much more difficulty from the tee boxes. The first par 3, #3, plays extremely downhill and is one of the stand-out holes on the course. The par-5 5th plays a nearly 90-degree dogleg left around a lake that sits between the #5 and #7 fairways. It's reachable in two with a good tee shot, but be wary of anything on the left half. The par 3 6th is a very short hole over water, but be sure you select the correct club, as short leaves you in the water and long leaves you over the back and down the hill into the woods. This is one of the most picturesque holes on the entire course, esp. up on the shorter tee boxes that are on top of a hill, offering a better view. This side is in mostly good condition, but the greens leave a lot to be desired, as several are in need of repair and covered in dead areas. Speaking of the greens, they are usually quite hard, even with all of the rain the area has received this summer. The back 9 is pretty lackluster, with only a couple of interesting holes, including the par 3 11th which plays 165 yards over water from the blue tees with more water to the right, and the closing par 4 18th, which is all downhill until a 25 foot climb to the elevated green. At 350 yards from the blues, it is easily possible to leave yourself just a simple chip up the hill for a birdie chance here. The back 9's fairways are pretty rough, there are quite a few dirt areas and again, the greens are average at best. The course staff is typically friendly, they have mostly college students working in the clubhouse, which does not offer anything as far as equipment sales and only has Point University apparel. As an overall value, the course is a fine option if you are on a budget and looking for a place to play (total price with cart for 18 holes during the week is $25, and only $30 on the weekends), but I definitely would not go out of your way to play here, as there are much better options 30 minutes north or south from I-85 in LaGrange, Georgia or Auburn.
