Love this course.

2.45 hrs. to play front nine!!! Golfers I played with quit after nine. I played back nine alone in 1.40 hrs. Apparently it was the busiest Friday they've had in a very long time. They gave me excuse due to Covid many are coming out to play. THEY NEED MARSHAL OUT ON COURSE ON BUSY DAYS!!!

Good city course

It's pretty good for a city course. Greens roll fine, fairways keep improving, there is actually grass around the greens. This more than you can say about Randolf!

Nice Muni Course

A very nice and challenging muni course. Nice layout and forgiving. Bunkers are fair..not bad without racks. Green are very tricky. Hard to keep balls on the small greens..when they toll off, you may be chipping or pitching? All in all, a local, affordable course.

Thank You Troon

Troon has groomed this course for fast play - no rough - enjoyed a nice walk with a 1st time on course golfer who scored a nice Birdie on the 14th hole! The greens were true and fast!
