There have been a few changes to the course over the last couple of months. On hole #2 which is the very long par 5 they removed the tree that was in the middle of the fairway right across the creek which is about 3/4 of the way to the green. This has really shaved the strokes off and made the hole much more manageable. The hole went from an automatic bogey to a good chance at par. Then the shared bunker on hole 3 and 15 is in the process of being filled in. Right now it is a large pile of dirt. I'm assuming it will be leveled out soon. The creek that runs through the middle of the course makes its presence known on at least 5 or 6 holes. Also the larger Linn Creek makes up the left boarder of holes 5 and 6, which seems to have a tendency to draw balls toward it! Make sure you enjoy the grill between the 9th and 10th. Great burgers and brats.

Good course, it is not real long but has some interesting holes on it that will provide you with a few challenges from the back tees. Pay attention to #2 par 5 which is 616 yards.

Note if you play on a Saturday or Sunday make sure you stop by the American Legion food tent which is between 9 and 10. It is a good burger.

Pretty straight forward course. Not really special, but not bad either. I enjoyed it and would play again.

Overall I wasn't that impressed with this course. The course maintenance was not very good. Most of the area outside the fairways and greens was brown. The course did have some interesting holes.
