Great course

I’ve lived only a few miles away for a couple years. I play 30+ rounds a year. Course was in great shape especially for the time of year. Greens were slow but had just been sanded. Will seek this out in the future.

Tale of two nines

Overall I like Phillips Park, and recommend it for recreational golfers who don't need a ton of distance from the tips to enjoy their round, and like design variety from hole to hole.

Front 9 is pretty much flat with the first few holes showing next to no trees. They are almost links style in their design. Holes 5-8 gradually introduce more trees until you get to 9 where you need to shoot your drive through a rather narrow gap between trees on both sides of the fairway.

The back 9 introduces much more terrain into the design, with quite a bit of distance on Par 3 #11 and Par 4 #17. Greens are more difficult on the back IMHO.

Course was wet, as I'd played just after a rather steady rain. Course conditions were pretty good for this time of season. Pace was lightning fast (nobody else on course for a rainy Tuesday). My limited interactions with the staff was pleasant and officious.

I recommend PP, but I think it's overpriced. Pay a few more bucks and you get much better course options in the area.
