Tucked on the northwest side of Columbia, this 9 hole par 3 course is a perfect little course for taking it easy as well as fine-tuning your game.

First off, the value of the course is spot on. If you're looking to hit a few with some friends, and don't want to empty your wallets, this is the perfect place. Last I checked, $10 will get you 9 holes and $15 can allow you unlimited play for the day!

Second, while this is 'just' a 9 hole par 3 course, most of the holes ARE regulation sized. Now a believe 2 or 3 are under 80 yards, but I look at those as a way to fine tune the SW and LW.

A few of them are quite challenging as they are surrounded by water. Make no mistake, this is not some wimpy chip-and-putt course.

But, I've seen golfers of all calibers at this course - young and old, as well as couples and pros. People come here to learn the game as well as to work on their irons. It's a great little family course.

There's also a driving range and a mini-putt course attached, so there's something for everyone.

For me, it's the perfect course to leisurely walk, drop a few balls and work on my short irons. Very nice!

Challenging for a beginner. Enjoyable. I hit well off the astroturf.

Nice tree lined course where you need to stay close to the fairway and out of the trees. Very few water hazards and no sand. The course is in good shape. Clubhouse needs to be replaced.
