For winter conditions this course is in good shape. No leaves , no Goose poop, grass is a good lenght. Greens are a tad bumping. The greens are hard ( yes it is winter) so fixing indentations is difficult. Surfaces of some greens need to be rolled smoother. But that is just me being picky.

Would travel: 10-20 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again

The course is well designed with a mixture of trees and sand traps placed in punishing positions. the numerous dog-leg left fairways creates a challenging dynamic coupled with fairways that run to the right. The rolled greens make this course one of the best on the west side of town. Very nice people in the clubhouse and on the course. I would like to see a rating system at the starter shack and on the scorecard to encourage players with a handicap higher than 10 to play from the WHITE TEES - it would help improve pace of play and overall satisfaction.

Challenging layout. maturing better than I am. I learned to play on this course. It is a fun place to play, but not a resort or vacation course. The bar / restaurant are always good and a good place to go for lunch, even if you are not playing. This course is a success story. Started by Recreation district, money from this one helped build others, sports fields etc. Will see in the long run how it goes.

Since building a new irrigation system in 1996, the course has matured to the point it can not be played strictly as 'hit short and run up'. The redesign of hole #4 has provided safety for those on #5 tee. The past few years the greens have been rolled and this also puts a premium on approach shot placement and the short game. This year, construction of forward tees for disabled golfers has been stepped-up.
