I love this course. They take great care of it, which can be seen by the great shape of the greens, fairways, and tee boxes. It is one of the cheapest courses around and in my opinion is the best round for the price in the area. Other than having a small pro shop, the only negative aspect is the people who crowd the course tend to be the weekend duffers who play slowly and loud. The first and second holes go around the driving range and people are ALWAYS going on the range to play their balls. Not only do they go on the range, but they go out there and take their time waiting on the people to clear the green in front of them. I was hitting on the driving range earlier and I almost hit three people. One was out around 200 yards. The only two were both about 100-150 out. One of the groups even had three carts who ALL drove around the driving range from 100-150 looking for their ball. I almost drilled one guy twice. The staff at the course told me the range is playable and we have to stop hitting when they come on. They don't have to wave or let us know they're coming on. We are supposed to pay attention to them driving around and not hit when they fly through the trees onto the course. It isn't very smart. I've never played a course where the driving range is not out of bounds.
