Layout includes a few elevated greens, an uncommon challenge at this price point, but this is a budget course and the conditions reflect it. It is, nonetheless, a fun place to play with friends and get an exceptional burger. The small pro shop has quality items and knowledgable staff; I bought a full set of Mizuno forged irons here several years ago. This is a good place to learn the game and/or play a casual round if you don't take yourself or the golf too seriously.

Great food values. Big quality portions for cheap. About $12 on golfnow w/ cart! That's cheaper than buying half a cart alone anywhere else. Greens need work, potholes everywhere, needs alot of work.
