The main difficulty of this course is from it's length. There are a few forced carries -- 17th and 18th make you decide whether to lay up or not -- but off the tee the forced carries aren't too bad so long as you are playing from the appropriate set of tees.

The scenery of the course is typical for a suburban golf course -- that is, lots and lots of houses line the holes. In other words, very so-so. Also, because the developers got lots of houses on lots of holes, there are many holes with a long distance from green to the next tee. This makes it a little harder to walk than an average course.

The course itself was fine -- and one of the first to reopen from the Iowa winter -- but in my mind the cost (which was above average) and the scenery (lack thereof) make it unlikely that I will frequent this course.
