Baker is Baker

We played this as a foursome for an annual Christmas round. This is an "executive course" that plays to a par of 62. Par 4s are in the 250-280 yard range. There are no par 5s.

Baker attracts a lot of beginners and casual golfers. It can play slow and the conditions are far from pristine. There were ball marks all over the greens. (Though maybe the twosome we saw driving a cart across the green were trying to smooth some out). The fairways were baked out in some spots, and very wet in others.

If you are just starting out, or teaching a son or daughter to play, this is not bad. Just don't expect too much.

Don’t understand good reviews - better, longer, cheaper courses nearby

Course is in very bad shape. Some tee boxes you cannot find a flat spot. Almost all you cannot find a grassy spot. If you miss the green, plan to hit off raw dirt. For $50 with cart, there are better options nearby. Also, extremely short course which some may like but be ready use driver just 5ish times in a round of 18. Also tight, probably saw (no joke) 20 balls on our holes that had been hit from others and left. Unfortunately this course is in really tough shape and was totally packed.

Good enough

First time playing here. Teed of right on time at 6:45. There is a little paper sign staked on the ground near the 1st Tee. Pace a little slow on the front. Pace much better after the turn. As with most greens nowadays, players don't fix pitch marks. Fairways patchy. Seems pricey for a par 62 short course.

DL Baker

overall course in good shape, but the fairways have way too many brown areas or no grass at all. Drought is really
killing the fairways.

Tony Course Big Price

Play here all the time. Perfect place to bring people who don’t golf. The pace of play is slow as rocks, the people playing have no etiquette, but the greens are pretty good I will say. Fairways and tee boxes look identical. Course is very small. For the price compared to other locations it isn’t worth it. You can play a course twice Bakers size for a few dollars more, heck some courses are way nicer, longer, and cheaper!

Lower end course

Very minimal amenities. No cart for snacks making rounds. No starter, so most people just tee off. It’s mainly all par 3s. Course condition is decent, but driving range looks like a dirt lot. Food at clubhouse is not quick, and is more sit down than grab and go.
