Great course

Course is very fun and in great shape! The layout is a little tricky on some holes but overall one of the most fun courses in the area.

Scratch

Course was great as usual. Staff was great also. Even with the wet weather, the course was still relatively dry. I played poorly, but I can’t blame the course.

Challenging.

I have just moved from the stl area and this course is a great substitute for my previous courses. Sets up in a fun but challenging way. Makes you choose the right shot and club on about every hole. From the tips it is very challenging.

Nice piece of property

Nice piece of property. Hills and woods and some water. No houses on the course. Greens were in good shape and a good speed. A few very narrow holes. Overall a good test, and a nice course, especially for a muni. Great price. Would recommend.
