Great course to work on irons/ short game! Better than beating balls at the range!

Average conditions for an executive course

This is my "home course", so I'll be back. The conditions could be better. There is a lot 9f long term ground repair. The greens are in good condition, so that is important. Clubhouse is decent but small. Its worth the $30ish for a round.

It is a beautiful course.

I played with my husband. This course has 4 par fours. I love playing it here. My husband plays once a week. It lets you drive the ball, layup, chip, and putt. I also play once a week in a women’s golf league. This is the best executive course.

Fun course.

Fun little golf course, great for beginners such as my wife. Groups need to be spaced out a few more minutes off of the first tee box. I’ve noticed it gets backed up immediately on 2nd then through out. I think a great solution would be to have the group finished up on first tee and on tee box of #2. Before group behind is allowed to tee off. Perhaps a 2 minute delay. Just saying
