This is a fun course; it's not long, but it does require that you not stray far from fairways. However, the traps are little more than dirt, including the pebbles and rocks, and at least three of the greens on the back nine had large areas with no grass at all, and about half a dozen were being aerated.

The worst part was the grounds crew. As my partner was teeing off on 14, a cart with two keepers drove right in front of him, and didn't reappear; when we went to check their location, there were three carts and four employees taking a break in the middle of the fairway. For the next four holes, the sprinklers came on just as we were getting ready to hit, including while on the green on 17 (the water flowed between my feet and the ball. At least four holes had large spots of standing mud. The pro shop seemed completely unconcerned about all of it.

I'll play it again, but only because it's close and not that expensive... and I'll definitely call before reserving a tee time to find out what condition the greens are in.

Would travel: 30-60 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing

I have been a member at Mace for 25 years. It is a course that you can play regularly and not get bored. The course sits at a 3,500 foot elevation, so we can get winter snow. Winter play can at times be iffy. A lot of work has been done to improve drainage. Water can come into play, that plus lots of trees and narrow Fairways can make this course a real challenge. The facility does have a nice bar and resturant.

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Ranks with the best in this price level, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing

This course has potential but has a drainage problem and becomes very sloppy as fall progresses. Tight fairways and sloping greens make for a good challenge. The views are excellent. Local players cause a serious slow play problem. Worth playing.

Would travel: 30-60 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Average course for the area, Better courses for less nearby
