This is a nice course for the beginning golfer or for seniors. Mostly flat, short and easy to walk. Greens are well kept. The owners do the most with what they have. Beautiful flora throughout the course and the Rogue River provides for a nice setting. An average golfer should score 10 strokes better on this course than he would on a loger public course. Be sure to hit the dew busters special before 8 am on weekends. They also have a nice 7 day replay rate. Otherwise, if you are faced with paying regular (comparable) rates, there are better values elsewhere.

The rough does get a little tall, but thats the challenge. A couple of the par 3`s are short and small greens. A couple of tight dog legs each way. There is enough sand traps and water that you want to be accurate. The price is alittle steep for the area but not too bad and plenty of specials. I don`t see what mbeck was seeing.

So overpriced... wow, its an easy course , nothing to it at all. Greens are usually decent but the fairway grass is long and the rough is weeds and bare spots all over the place. I was shocked to find out what the cost to play was.
