Hard to compare to 18 hole courses, but as a 9 hole par 3 course, this is the best I've ever played. Facilities are well kept, with an amazing driving range. Good value for residents, and usually isn't too busy. Great place to play if you only have an hour or two to squeeze in a round.

Nicest driving range around! Love those adjustable tees. Nice short game area, but I've seen much better practice putting greens(This one is flat as a pancake). Great place to take youngsters learning to golf, or practice if you're having difficulty on Par 3 holes. A nice walk if you only have 90 minutes to play golf. Forget the push/pull cart-it's easier carrying the bags due to hilly course.
