Craziness

This course has crazy amounts of elevation changes. Several holes that you can’t see the green from the tee. Greens are in good shape but rather slow rolling.

Hidden Treasure

Forgot about this gem; played twenty-five years ago and its beauty made more of an impression on my now that I'm older and can appreciate it. It is difficult for an average golfer if hills are a challenge to you. The greens were very nice, considering the time of year and little rainfall lately. It is within the park, which is another treat in itself.

Great course.

Well maintained course, especially the greens. Quite a few hills, which leads to a lot of blind shots. Trees surround nearly every hole with not much forgiveness left or right. I do not think there is a better course for the money. The only thing that keeps me from rating it 5 stars is that it is only 9 holes.

Audubon

Challenging course hilly and narrow in spots. Some of the greens struggle in high humidity damp conditions. Value and fun are excellent! Staff is always friendly and helpful.

Nice Course for the $

Course was in good shape. Tee boxes could be flattened up. The course is very hilly and makes shots more difficult because you are never on a flat lie. They are normal greens fees are pretty slow and the hot deals are even better.

Slow going in the morning.

Took 2.5 hours to finish 9 in the morning. Course is very hilly and that adds a challenge to some of the holes. Overall nice day on the course just slow.

No flat lies!

IF you are lucky, you will have a flat lie on the tee box. Otherwise, forget that. This is a rolling, hilly course with narrow fairways. Not for the faint of heart, but always a good challenge. Only real bad point on this trip was the conditions of the greens, as they were very long and slow, and a bit beaten up. Otherwise, the course was in fairly good shape. Well worth the price.

Tough course in the fall

Greens were in great shape. Because the leaves were down it was hard to find your ball. Still, it was a lot of fun on the second time through since there were so many blind shots. Need to play it a few times to get the hang of it. Very cool lay out.

Great course, love the elevation changes

If you have ever been to Augusta National and seen the elevation changes you will love this course. Greens are all good size, tree-lined fairways, you must shape it a bit left and right, accuracy is at a premium. Had not played there in ten years forgot how much I love this track! Only 9 holes but well worth playing around twice.

I consider this my home course!!!

It's the first course I ever played, it wasn't easy, nor discouraging. I'll always play here, and I appreciate the driving range where I can practice, and retrieve my own golf balls with ease.
