Nice, simple 9 hole track. Several par/birdie holes. Wind can come into play. Generally well conditioned for public course. Nice beverage cart service. No 8 dogleg left is toughest for me. Bar restaurant is great value with gorgeous sunset views from deck.

A few long holes and challenging greens but course overall is great for the money and it isn't under water! The sand traps are being fixed up, so there is currently a generous drop policy for sand traps under repair. Not too much goose poop found, so a noticeable improvement there!

The scorecard and description of this course is incorrect. The ninth hole listed in your description and on the scorecard is, in actuality, the first hole and every other hole on the scorecard should be moved up one hole; therefore, the first hole listed on your scorecard is really the second, the second is really the third hole and so on. That would make the shortest hole the fifth hole and the most difficult hole the seventh hole. The easiest hole is probably the par three ninth hole which is just slightly easier than the par three fifth hole.

If it werent' a public, 9-hole course and subject to hackers, it would be an excellent course that would be a great test for most golfers. I play in a weekly league and will keep coming back. The clubhouse is AWESOME with great food, an excellent bar and a very nice deck with beautiful view. Excellent value.

This course is one of the best 9 hole course you'll find. Greens are smooth and quick, although if you play early, they won't all be mowed. Tight driving course, lots of wetlands where you can't go after your ball. A fun course, that I've always enjoyed playing.
