The course is not maintained very well. Lots of dead trees on course. Lots of leaves and branches. The greens on some holes have bare spots. No rangers around to check on things. One nice thing is to see the deer hanging around the course.

Much crab grass, ball marks on greens and rough areas un-kept.
