Great old course to play

Reviewed April 17, 2008

Located in Upper Bidwell Park, this course is relaxing to houses being built...deer, turkeys and other wild life running around, a creek running through it. #13 is my favorite hole over the creek. I never get tired of playing this course. It's not a difficult track, but even really good players enjoy this course. For a muni, it's pretty well maintained. The greens can be a bit bumpy at times. #1 is not a good starting hole as it is short and narrow with tall trees on the left and OB looming there and trees lining the right. You can hit your driver through the fairway easily and wind up having to punch out. Better to start with an iron and keep yourself in play. After that, things smooth out. Most enjoyable.
