Course Reviews

I thought this was a nice munincipal course. Not particularly long, rolling, but a nice course to walk. Still has plenty of challenges but won't beat you up too bad. Great for a relaxing round.

This course was not maintained very well. I was told they were implementing Zoisa grass and you could definitely tell where that was, because there was no grass. The course was not very difficult, i played like garbage and as an 9 or so handicap shot an 80. VERY short, hit driver sand wedge into most par 4's and not very tight. Greens were fairly smooth, unlike the courses here where i am from. Also, they ran out of golf carts that day so we had to wait for one to come around and teed off over 20 minutes after our scheduled tee time. I would recommend to someone trying to learn the game but for more experienced golfers i would probably not recommend this course.
