What a little gem! I am in the process of teaching my fiance to play come here about once a week. This is a perfect place to work on your short game. THe tees are astro turf mats..which I would expect this time of year. I am pleasantly suprised at how good the greens are. They aren't Augusta like...but then I don;t expect them to be. They run true and are fast enough to work on your game. The back nine is shorter than the front....and I don't think there is any hole more than 135. There is some water on the back. None on the front. The good fiance is getting very excited about golf...and now can begin to understand my fanaticism with the game! The price is also a smoking deal!!
