I've played many of the other public courses in the area and the Arboretum was the best so far....I won't spend over $50 to play Not the longest course, but really made me think off the tee.

I play this course weekly and have grown to love its challenges. It has taught me to play every club in my bag and focus on where I want to place the ball. The greens are fast and true. In mid- season the flowers are gorgeous and the fairways perfect.

quite a few holes where water comes into play. need to be able to place your shots to move around this course and score. well conditioned with a good mix of holes. a little overpriced and slow (we played on a holiday weekend) but enjoyable.

Fairways should be cut all the way to the greens instead of the target golf layout. Like the second hole, where the fairway ends about where your drive should end up. Otherwise plenty of hazards, nice greens and fairways.
