The greens are superfast right now. I mean putt it off the green fast. Too fast for the caliber of golfers that play here (in general of course). This slows play. This course always plays long due to very soft (almost muddy) fairways. This slows play. Of course you can play from the front tees but almost no one does. There are usually a few walkers which occasionally can't keep up with the pace. Usually older folks so I'm cool with it. Anyway, average rounds run about 4 hours and 45 minutes. Lastly, the mens room was double bogey bad. No paper towels? A blow dryer? Stainless steel mirrors? Really? Wash your face after eating the nice chicken wings and there you stand with a wet face so you can resort to cheap toilet paper. Reminded me of a prison. I would not bring business people for this alone. The snack bar itself is first rate and has liquor and sports bar type fare.

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

A public course with a decent lay out. The major draw back is pace of play. A lot of walkers slow the pace to much.

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