Course Reviews


On the bright side...as far as value is concerned...paid $10/person after 3:00...so good bargain there. I, on the other hand, would not come back to play. Front nine boring and back nine...too many harsh doglegs. The Par 5 16th forces you to tee off with a short iron....but not knowing the course...I whacked a driver...ooops. Just not a fun set-up...no traps (keeps maintenance down I guess). With two more enjoyable courses nearby (Tam O'Shanter and Spring Valley), I'd go for a little more challenge and scenery over value.

Played the course on the 25th. Pros: good value, good greens, walkable. Cons: need visable yardage markers(blue, white, red poles)#9 and 18 tee boxes a disaster, rough in the middle of #2 fairway makes no sense. Would I play the course again yes.

Pretty good course overall. The front nine is boring, but the back nine is much more challenging and interesting. They need yardage markers that are easier to find and easier to see. On the day I played there, carts were only allowed on cart paths. I got exhausted just looking for my ball in thick grass and then having to search long and hard for yardage markers and then walking back to the cart to pick out my club.

A NICE, WELL-MAINTAINED MUNI. THE VFW RESTAURANT IS GREAT, BUT ANOTHER HALF-MILE FROM THE COURSE (WHICH DETRACTS FROM AMENITIES RATING). THERE ARE PRACTICE GREENS, BUT NO DRIVING RANGE. THE STAFF IS GREAT, VERY HELPFUL. IT IS ALWAYS A PLEASANT EXPERIENCE TO PLAY THIS COURSE BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO USE ALL YOUR CLUBS AND A VARIETY OF SHOTS, ESPECIALLY ON THE MIDDLE HOLES OF BOTH THE FRONT AND BACK NINE. MAKE SURE TO USE THE VFW LOUNGE AND RESTAURANT AFTER YOUR ROUND. A GREAT PLACE FOR TRAVELING LEAGUES TO PLAY.
