Forgiving

This is a nice public course that is very forgiving as there isn't a whole lot of trouble to get into. The greens were somewhat hard but rolled true. This is a fairly flat course with small rolling hills. I don't know that I would pay what I did when I can go across the HWY and play Hunter Ranch for another $20-30 depending on the deal you get from GolfNow.

Soft greens

Greens were soft but rolled true to me and was still able to spin ball back pretty well on wedge shots

Fun course.

While the course is somewhat in the middle of nowhere, the drive is worth it. When pulling up, does not look like much and pretty outdated. Hit some balls at the range that was rather short and if you a driver with any decent distance, you'd be getting to a believe the 2nd fairway. Now once I started to play, I enjoyed the course. Have to remember it is the central valley and this is a public course so the fairways are a little dried up but still very enjoyable. Greens were in fairly good conditions, I enjoyed the course overall. Will be coming back.
