Course Reviews


Decently maintained, but slow going and the scenery leaves much to be desired. Powerlines are everywhere and the course is pretty flat. They have tried to dress it up with a cement pond here and a cement waterfall there, but it feels like you are playing on a grass covered concrete slab. The wind keeps you from going low and a few wholes have OBs stakes placed along the sides to punish errant tee shots. Oh, and did I mention it is slow going?

High winds in the afternoons, play early, nice course very wide open.
