Great course. Greens were unbelievable. One of the best greens I have every played on. Demanding course, that has already had hosted major state amateur tournys. If you are in the area, you need to play this course. I have no idea how Mr.Vol came up with his comments. He must be a local individual who would plays on "municipal" courses.

Was not what I expected, I had heard for years how great this course was but it was not. The greens are good but the layout of the course is average at best. Staff was rude except for gentlman at the driving range. The course is private so one would have to know a member or play there in a tournament as I did.
