I had the whole course to myself. Tee shots don't have much wiggle room so use accuracy instead of distance. Greens rolled true.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Bargain priced based on quality and competitive area pricing

Poor Muni Experience. Rate is much more than I'd want to pay. Just play it because it is conveniently located in my home town.

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: Worse than average course for the area
