I had high hopes for this course. The front nine is in the heather and the back is in the woods.

The course is a municipal course and maintained as such. Traps seem like they have never been raked. Who decided to put the cart path between the traps and the fairway. Stand on the 11th tee and go "Huh".

I don't think I'll be back for the prices they charge.

Excellent layout with very good design. The condition of the course/fairways & greens is average but improving. Greens are "too healthy" - they roll true, but have too much grass on them. Some of the areas best & most challenging holes are on this course. Very affordable and one of the best values around. Worth much more than the green fees charged.
