Many tee shots are framed beautifully with fairway bunkers and water. The greens are large and undulating with a few greenside bunkers to challenge your sand game. This is a links style course.

This course definitely had a municipal course feel to it. It is a very forgiving course for the major slicers out there. Overall, I just didn't care for it.

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: Average course for the area
