nice golf course, I would play it routinely

only issue here is pace of play, almost 5 hour round due to numerous players that can barely hit and take a long time, that is bad on every golf course

Creek=good Babe=eh west=awful

The babe/creek 18 is a bang for the buck. Overall it’s a very well kept course and played very well. The babe alright with mostly playable holes that are fairly straightforward but can get a little boring. The creek however is worth the price of admission and I wish you could just play that for 9 holes. The creek may not be long, but every hole is at least somewhat interesting with a great layout and a solid use of land. But my God, the west course blows. West is a very boring round of golf with just long straight holes that are pretty much the same. Kennedy is a perfect example long doesn’t mean better. Overall creek and babe is a good time.

Challenging experience given the conditions

I played the Babe/Creek combination and walked the round. It was very challenging given the circumstances. It started out rough due to the required telephone check in from the parking lot. Despite being told everything was fine, by the time I got to the first tee, my group was already out in the first fairway. I hustled down to the second tee and caught them there so I missed the first hole. Since there were no benches, water, or scorecards it was a tough day. I felt like I was constantly faced with blind shots since there was often quite a distance from the tees to any course information markers. Without a scorecard or other map, it was quite challenging. There was no drink cart so without water on the course, it was a brutal 90 degree round.
