Senior rate includes a cart fee of $0.95. GPS on cart makes first time play enjoyable. Large undulating greens challenges putting skill. Wide fairways let long hitters swing away.

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing

It was during the hot season and the greens and fairways were overwatered causing mud-packed greens and soggy fairways. Not thier fault but it still cost $72.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Average course for the area, Better courses for less nearby

The greens can be devilish if the pins are set up on the mounding of some greens. Fair layout and you can get on it fairly easily. But for the money, it may be better to drive a little further or pay a little more.
