Bad decision to add resin cup inserts to the top

I probably wont be back due to the cups have inserts all the way to the level of the green. I felt like I was at a mini putt course. Lip outs like crazy! Great championship layout....course was in ok shape...we havent had any rain in 2 weeks so all courses are hard and brown. I can't blame the super for that. Just the inserts decision!

Wonderful !

I always enjoy playing at Cardinal Lakes. If you are on your game , Cardinal Lakes can be had. I really enjoy the 17th hole with its Risk /Reward opportunity.
