Still Grand

This is one of the great old munis, and I make a point of playing here when in town. The course shows some wear from frequent play and likely a dry winter but the greens are excellent for all that. There was a Marshall and a cart girl so what more can you ask.

Despite heavy play, course is in relatively good shape. Greens are a bit slow, but easy to read.

Slow Pace of Play

Tee time: 11:48. Took one hour to play 3 holes. Total round was 5 hours. No Marshall around. We had this same problem the first time we played this course about 4 year ago. Decided to try it again. Nothing has changed. Probably will not return.

Ancil Hoffman, a real test.

Ancil Hoffman has always been a great course to play. Now that the trees are fully grown it has become much more difficult. I used to be able to attack the course, but not any longer. I also found the greens extremely fast.
