Arboretum

Course is a great track, but the sand traps have MUCH to be desired! Greens rolled great...
No sand in traps, just dirt... I would have given a 5 star if the traps had sand...too bad...

Confused?

A course where water can intersect the fairways at strange places and swallow your well intentioned shots is not fun or fair. The lack of hole by hole layouts on the scorecards and with nothing printed on the tee markers makes for a challenging round. Coupled with no 200/150/100 yard markers anywhere on the course and you are left guessing constantly. This could be a wonderful golf course but by not doing the very basics it is no surprise it was not busy on a nice day for golf.

Always Fun

A nice track albeit tricked up and goofy breaks on greens. Tee boxes need a lot of TLC. Fun day. Good value.
