$26 (cart not included), played on Friday, July 2012 at 4pm

Pros: Greens were in immaculate condition, especially considering the droughts we've had here in 2012. The course was rather tight with tree lined fairways on most holes. A tough, fair challenge for all players. Nice practice facility as well. Cons: Expensive all around. Full price is over $70 w/cart for a non-resident weekender. On the range, a small bucket is $7, large is $14 (not that large, either). Also, I didn't like the multiple holes that lined I-294 (there were at least 5 of them). The trees do an OK job of blocking most of it out, but hooking/slicing over the concrete walls is still very possible for a big hitter. The traffic noise takes away from the otherwise serene ambiance as well.

Would travel: 10-20 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
