Cheap, beginner course. I gave it 2 stars on difficulty only because they never mow the grass. The greens are terrible, even when they have grass. Good place to play if you're new or broke.

Easy course. 5 bunkers on course and only 1 water hazard. Great for beginners and you can't beat the price.

This could be the nicest golf course I have ever played.. It is often windy which presents a great challenge for the ultimate golfer.. The layout allows you to be very aggressive but you must also be very accurate as the greens are very small and undulating. I simply love this course.

In the event everyone else is booked, and you DESPERATELY need to play a round; this is the place.
I wouldn't call it terrible, but you can pretty much figure that since it's municipal, and only $18 w/cart for 18 holes, it's not the Masters.
I agree it would be a great place to learn, or to bring your cheap beginner friends.
