Front nine harder than back nine, especially for ladies. The more times you play the course the better you will score.

steadily making improvements to course, but would benefit from kicking off the idiot who goes out in the first group or two every morning, and "scoops" his ball from the cup with his putterhead, basically messing up each and every cup for every player the rest of the day....must be the owner or his wife, and staff is afraid to say anything
