This used to be a 27 hole country club, but years ago they built lots of condos, and left only nine holes. The first 3 holes remain as they were years ago. It's nice for a nine hole muni course as long as you like playing between buildings. This is a 'home' course for some local high school golf teams. The par 5 No. 5 hole is nasty. Condos left, water right, narrow fairway till you get past the dogleg right. The course is flat, so you can walk it. Nothing spectacular about any other holes, but decent shots are required. All levels of players here. Young kids, older couples. Sometimes you can play a quick nine, other times it takes forever behind beginners. The club house has a bar and some food. All in all it's a nice 9 holes to play if you live in the area.

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Average course for the area, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing

Interesting for 9 holes, but too many houses. Several holes bounded by roads with traffic, an inevitable feature of the layout/location, but it lessens the ambience.

Would travel: 10-20 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
