1st couple and last greens were a bit rough. The rest in good shape. Fairways and tees were good.
3 singletons caught up to our 4some so our pace suffered for letting them play through. Other, busier courses would have bunched them into a 3 some. 4 hours still wasn't too bad.

It's a nice course. I like the hills. You almost have to be trying to get yourself in trouble. I'd play here more often if it wasn't 75 miles from home.

Worth the Drive

Drove from DeKalb and definitely worth it. Fun course, small and challenging greens. Very friendly staff and folks on the course. Will definitely be back this season.

The course had an outing. They suggested we call you and demand our money back. We were the 3rd group that booked a tee time that should not have existed. We waited about 45 minutes and played with no issues from there. Have played this course multiple times. It seemed uncharacteristically "shaggy".

Tougher than expected

At 6,186 yds, par 70 I expected an easier track. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the toughness of this gem. The course features small sloping greens, a fair number of long par 3s and 4s, a winding creek and elevation changes on every hole. And, the course was well maintained. A great value!
