Nice value for a community style course. Do not find yourself above the cup trying to make downhill putts.

This is a nice course real open not alot of hills and very little water. Greens tend to run fast. this is a real nice course for a real good price

A Walk In The Park (after midnight)

This is a very short course with a lot of trouble. There is very little water hazards but lots of tree's and thick rough. What the course lacks in distance it makes up for on the lighting quick greens. My suggestion is to do alot of lag putting because a four putt is not rare.
