Greens need work

The course needs some tic. It seems like every year they lose the greens. The back nine was better especially the fair ways but all the greens were in bad shape. The attendant did say they were going to aerate the greens this next week. The course has so much potential especially the back nine. I hope that the grounds crew gets it back in shape because I love playing there.

Quiet Place

Course is good if you’re looking to have a quiet time and not be bothered or rushed by trailing players. The course itself is very challenge and need to keep your shots straight or be prepared to go over whole sack of balls. Fairways are narrows for most holes, and toll grass bordering which makes it impossible to find your ball of it rolls down the slopes. Front and back 9’s are separated about 1/2 mile from each other. Navigation of the course is kind of challenging due to ups and down hills through a narrow and dark car path. In general, I enjoyed every minute here, it’s quiet and peaceful.

This is like playing at two different courses F9 / B9

The back 9 holes are so much fun and forgiving to play. A few greens could use some work but overall great! The front 9 cart path could use a lot of work. Overall fun time never too busy!

Old and new

Staff stated the first nine holes was built around 2000 and the back nine was built in the 1960s I hope I got that right. Great Course for the money looking forward to go back and play again.

Flipped 9's on us

I would have preferred to play the course 1-18 instead of 10-18, 1-9

Back 9 would have been even more enjoyable if we would have been warmed up after playing the front. The back 9 is so much nicer. Conditions were good all around, a few bare spots but nothing that a foot wedge does not fix.
