Good day.

We drove 1 hour to play the course. It as an ideal weather day and the course was in good shape. We enjoy going outside our immediate area on Fridays to play different courses. This course is relatively flat with large greens. Each green has some casual breaks for the putting. Staff was very friendly. We will play again.

Great value

Course is well managed.. Greens were in good shape.. Bunker's actually had sand in them... That you could actually hit out of rather than putt out of.. overall very well-groomed and a great value... Decent length but at the same time pretty forgiving so great for beginners and intermediate... Play the tips if you want a challenge ..adds some length

Atwood Homestead Golf course

Course was in Pretty good shape. Greens need a lot more divot repair. Many sand traps were ugly with some water. Fairways were very nice and tee areas were quite good. Course played well, but putting was an issue on some greens.
