Beautiful, fun and fair

This is one of our favorites. It’s a beautiful, fun and fair layout, with interesting variety. The greens can be difficult, especially with the very tough pin positions we had on Sunday, but they do what you see and roll true. The only negatives about this place are no gps on the carts and diagrams of only the greens and not the entire hole. We’re ok with it because we have our own gps watch and have learned the course and could also use a gps phone app if necessary.

Worth the drive

Links course with great layout. Greens are good speed, and true. Staff is always friendly. I like the views from hole to hole. You can score good if you can strike the ball consistently, not a lot of tough shots. From tips can get hard, but for average golfers, it won’t wear you down.

Love this course

The crook is always a good play. Greens roll true and pin placements always vary. The removal of some trees along with the NE extension of the landfill have brought a new feel to holes 13- 16.
The weather , as always played a roll in the round.
Temperature, wind direction and speed all changed multiple times during the round keeping my 4-some on their toes.
