Good variety

Fun course. Relatively narrow fairways. Has its share of older golfers on weekdays so can be slow.

Excellent starting course

Great little course for practicing beginners and advanced players. The fairways & greens are well maintained. Love it when you don’t have time for 18 holes.

Staff is top notch

Only course I've ever played that reached out ahead of time to notify our group of a frost delay...a day in advance! Appreciated not having to waste time there in the morning waiting for it to warm up. Thanks Tam!
