A gem among 9 hole courses in the region

Nice and well laid out and well maintained course.. All Tee boxes are grass and the greens were way faster than expected. Definitely coming back.

Fun, simple course

Always have a good time at Rec 9. Not that difficult but it's a fun course and I've met a lot of great people.

Good for beginner to intermediate

Decent course conditions, greens played faster than expected with the rain we got recently, but were in good condition, with the exception of the 8th green.

Great 9 hole. Good distance on all holes. Well manicured fairways and greens. Will return.

Fun Course

Tee time was 8:22 am. All went well. There was a PGA youth group that was teeing off after us, so that eliminated the possibility of getting a replay. I failed to notice when I booked on Golf Now, that there was a three or four hour tee time gap after 8:22 am. That is not a complaint. the glitch in booking was on me. I play this course mostly during the week. The course is in good shape and the staff and golfers are very friendly.

Staff

Staff starter seem a bit overwhelmed, for a 9hole course our foursome noticed a 5some a holes ahead which slowed the play. Not a friendly attitude
