Good Muni course

Dobson is a very good muni course and a great value. It is in pretty good shape. Somewhat challenging. Best bang for the buck in the east value.

Good golf at a good price

My only complaint is the staff person who took my green fee did not cover his mouth or nose with his mask. Only his chin. Come on man!

tough pin placements

course was in very nice shape and it was very enjoyable except for some of the pin placements with the speed of the greens. Just about impossible to not at least 3 putt some of the greens but the greens and course are in very nice shape.

Older facility, very difficult greens

No hybrids or driver on the range. Course in pretty good shape after over-seed. Rarely a flat lie on the greens, very difficult and 'tricked up.' Older facility but adequate, somewhat slow play (4 hours & 40 minutes).
