Perhaps the best 9-hole muni I've ever played. Too bad it's not 18. Greens are quick, and course calls for a lot of tough shots.

Well kept course, excellent value. One of my favorite courses in the area. My one complaint is the same for nearby River Bend. I absolutely can not stand Canada Geese on the course. This one has now been invaded by those pests.

Truly a very challenging course. I think the slope rating seems low. Firm and fast greens and sloped with plenty of break. Several elevation changes. Water comes into play on several holes.

Easy to get to, you could even take the train to get here. Rich history as one of the oldest courses in the area. Mostly a walkable course as most players choose to.
Power carts are available. Walking up #3 will remind you you are alive.

Like most muni courses, amenities are light. Clubhouse has only beverages, and a few TV's not much of a proshop.
No Bev carts, however, drinking foutains or water stations can be found spread around the course.

A number of the greens have been shrunk in size for 2008.
As of this fall, several holes are having alternate t-boxes rebuilt, does not affect game play much. Looks like a new T box for #7 for the blue T's to make this monster even tougher.

$17.75 for Non res for 9 holes walking.
Pace of play is usually good here on weekday afternoons
Golf leagues and high school tournements during the week, call ahead.

You've got to play this one !
