Do Not Recall (cart included), played on Wednesday, June 2017 at

I have no idea what happened to this place. Used to be a well maintained course with some challenging holes. Now the greens are terrible and the place smells like sewage. Such a shame. Literally right up the road from me and I'll drive past it to get to nicer places.

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I won't play again, I wouldn't recommend this course, Any price would be too much for this courses
