Nice Course to Play

The Fairways has really improved this course over the past four years. The former Rochelle Country Club course has a lot of large trees that gives it character. Wish they would trim the trees on number 9 and 18 fairways. I like the plans they have in the club house for course improvements. Hope they can obtain the funding to make these improvements. Overall nice course for the average golfer to play.

Great Value.

Found this course online and my wife and I decided to drive an hour west to try it. Glad we did...great iron practice with the tree-lined fairways and a nice easy back nine. I wish more courses were designed like this.

Ok

Executive course, par 66. Tight. Nice enough for a short course. Good for sharpening your game.
