The layout on this course is nice, with some unique holes. Water comes into play on about 5 holes and the up and down terrain makes the holes interesting. A cart is a must here which kind of stinks considering I like to walk for the excercise. The one flaw is the maintainance for the course. Fairways are virtually non existent and often a good shot finds its way to a bad lye. Overall though, for the price, it's not that bad.

A decent cheap round of golf. The greens were in much better shape than I remembered. I'd recommend the Olde Course first. There is a reason this is called a "city" course. For example, there was a burnt out car in the middle of the 12th fairway. A unique city course hazard.
