Holes right next to each other

When I saw how tight the holes are together, I was expecting a shooting gallery. Surprisingly, there didn’t seem to be a need for many people to call “fore.” The course wasn’t full by any means, so that helped. Course was in pretty good condition. Probably a decent course for newer players (other than hole proximities). Not real challenging for more serious golfers.

Good Course but Watch out for Cart Included Pricing

Good course overall, very hilly and greens were challenging. Not bad for a 9 hole course. However the golf now price said the cart was included and when I got to the course they told me the cart should not have been included. It seems that Golf Now is offering this with the cart incorrectly. The ground was too wet so they were walking only that day anyway, but just something to be aware of.
