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.

Was looking for a place to play on the GPS and found this place. The course is not in the best condition. The greens were okay, fairways were fair, the the rough probably has not been cut all year. Extremely short course with many of the par 4's reachable if you average 280 off of the tee. The greens are TINY so don't be fooled thinking you can drive the green. Surprisingly, the greens held excellent with an iron or wedge into the green.

I would only recommend this course on a Wednesday (I played on a Wednesday) where it is only $19 for 18 holes, cart, hot dog, and a coke. Though it does not get my best rating, you would be hard pressed to find a better deal.

This isn't the nicest course, but both CC courses are extremely difficult. don't be retarded.

The worst conditioned golf course I have ever played. A total dump!

I've never played a course where the fairways were so bad I would rather hit from the rough. That is, until I played here.

A much more urban course than its sister "The Olde Course" with the bulk of play on the back 9 alongside and inbetween roads. Fairways were in a poor state due to remedial maintenance work in progress and leaf coverage. Greens were mostly OK. A useful alternative to "The Olde Course" but probably will never be its equal.
