The course has the potential to be really great. I think lack of funds (economy) has allowed the course to downgrade a little.

Still a nice course, but showing the effects of a slow economy. Course condition was spotty. Greens less than perfect, but better than average.

Wonderful Greens and a great layout. The staff and club are good. Hard to get over the bare fairways and rough. A lot of piled brush and waste...
