Older course with narrow, tree lined fairways. Par 3's a challenge. Good ambiance for a city course, with lake views and near the water, so cooler on hot days. I play course weekly with a league and it is never boring. Staff is friendly and helpful. Clubhouse offers amenities,food and beverage options, and CDGA computer posting.
