A challenging course with narrow, tree-lined fairways and lots of rolling hills, but could use some more maintenance. Greens were in good shape but fairways were on the rough side. There had been a recent heavy rain and the traps were basically washed out and muddy - we played them as ground-under-repair. The 18th hole, a par 3, is a killer - 245 yards from the white tees!

Course is experiencing some deterioation of a couple of greens (using secondary target green) primarily due to the weather which has been atrocious.
