Rustic, quirky

The greens were in great shape. They're tiny, but the grass is good and they rolled smoothly. There was no one there, and I played 18 in 2 hours on a late November Sunday morning. The price was right.

The negatives: The fairways are a patchwork, often lacking grass. They need to start over and re-seed. It's a shame they can have greens this good, and fairways this bad. The tees are mostly fine, except the 4 that are astroturf (you read that correctly). The front 9 is pretty basic golf, except for 7. The back 9 gets pretty wacky, with several holes worthy of Golden Tee. 18 is an island green par 3.

Overall, I can conditionally recommend the course, as long as you are prepared for something rustic with a lot of quirk.

Aweful Golf Course

The only good thing to say about this course is that the grass was green. Do not play this course if you are a serious player.
