Course Reviews


I'll start by saying that there are some very bad reviews of this course floating around the internet... by some of them I expected to find engine blocks sitting in the middle of fairways with only 4 greens and 5 tee boxes.

Not true. The tee boxes are pretty nice. The fairways are sandy with patchy (but well manicured) grass... difficult but playable. Some might see this as a negative, I saw it as a different sort of challenge.

The bunkers are sand-less, and the water hazards are water-less. Again, some might see this as a negative... I saw it as forgiving and (again) a different sort of challenge.

Greens are where I can complain, which is why this is a 3/5 rating instead of a 4/5. The same patchiness present on the fairways was an issue on the greens. It affects speed and the line of your putt. Still possible to put some longer putts close and make the ones you should make, but something that should be tended to.

One green appeared to have been moved from its higher location to a filled-in bunker nearby. The grass in the area was a rough's quality cut to a green's length. Putting was extremely difficult here (I actually had to hit a bit down on the ball to "chip" it on my first putt to get it close enough) so they give you a 7 or 8 inch cup instead of normal. Weird, and enough of a difference for me to note it on my card as something way out of the ordinary.

Other notes from the course... some of the longer fairways are flanked short by gate-keeper trees to add a little challenge and force you to make a decision on your shot. The greenskeeper was nice, keeping an eye on my location and making sure he was out of my way and not walking in the line of my shot (other reviews say he refused to budge from his maintenance duties).

This is a nine-hole course that you can play through twice to make a full eighteen. It's almost the same course the second time through with only slightly different angles and distances for the same fairways and greens. I just played nine. Seems like the way to go here for only $14.

Very tough to rate. For those who like beautiful conditions, look elsewhere. For those who are architecture junkies, this is a diamond in the rough. 1920s classic Banks design. Wide fairways which reward tee shot placement to certain sides, with grass bunkers about 8-9' high and push up greens which provide a lot of challenge. A perfect place for the fellow who likes old courses, to walk their round, and a real sense of history and character. But you will have to put up with some very iffy conditioning.

This is no country club by any means, but it is an inexpensive course with some challenges. Many of the greens are elevated dramatically, but are in varying states of disrepair. The fairways are grass/weeds, but kept mowed for the most part. It is nine holes with two sets of tees for each hole so that you can play 18, but the difference between the two sets is usually just several yards. Its a good course to run out to for an evening nine.

Play this one with jeans and work boots!

For 19 bucks you don't expect a superior 9 hole course...but you would hope that there is some grass on the green. The tee boxes are dirt covered and the greens arn't much better. The ground crew wouldn't move off of two of the greens while we were playing. I only got to play 8 of the holes because the ninth hole flag was sitting in a bucket 25 yards in front of what was supposed to be a green someday. The woman in the club house had the gaul to say there was no construction taking place on the course....laughable. Worst course i have played on...and I have played on a dirt course in Afghanistan while at war there!
