Course is under new ownership and they appear serious about improving things. Played for first time today and enjoyed it very much. Several greens are being redone and you can see new water lines going in. Course still is rough in some areas due to recent tornadoes. Met the owner and was impressed by his determination to make changes. GREAT value course.

Yes, the course needs some serious work but, for the price it's a great place to strengthen ones golf game. If your a beginner,like myself, it's ideal. Less than 50 dollars for a monthly membership(without a cart). Gets some exercise and walk the course, it's short.

The reason difficulty is so high on my ratings is because the fairways are twice as high as most places rough hard to get a good lie in the deep cut. How ever my dad and I just began playing golf about 6 months ago so we are basically still learning the game and since there are not a lot of people playing this course it's good for some practice but i will agree with Phil76 with a little work and money this would be a great little course to play.

I have played here twice (close to home). Course is rundown, but could be a great place (has great scenery and locaation) if the owner would put more time & money into it.

I would say you get what you pay for, but in order to be true, they should have payed me....

Never go here, what a joke. It was like playing in a cow pasture. It appears someone has just abandoned this course but somehow it is still open.
