Amazing pace for a city course.

We played as a twosome in 3hrs 15 minutes, which is pretty amazing. Granted we started at 745 am, but I still thought it would be slower. Helped that there were only 2-somes ahead of us.

Fairways were in very good condition. Some teeboxes were pretty much dirt only from the blue tees, but didn't ruin my round or day. Greens were slow but rolled pretty true. Hit a 75 so I ended the day pretty happy and the fact that it was only 3 hours made it that much better.

A Hidden Gem!

Another Good Day in the Park

Despite very slow greens and a person in the foursome ahead of us who lined up every shot like he was in the PGA, I enjoyued the course like I always do.

Not bad for City Course

Hot day so course was pretty empty so pace wasn’t an issue today. Course in decent shape with the exception of some tee boxes. Short course that challenges you if you don’t hit it straight. Some interesting greens. Decent value for your money

Course is on the upswing

Greens were good. On the slow side but rolled well. Players need to fix their ball marks. I fixed at least 4 on every hole. I feel price is a bit high on the weekend with a cart. The times fill up so they can get the rates they charge. Need to pick up the garbage. Trash was filled up n beer cans all over. Come on! Will go back.
