I've played at this course for 25 years and have never seen it in better shape or run by more competent people - even with the cutbacks that the economy required. Get lots for your money at Bonnie Brook.

Visiting area on business two weeks each month. This is a nice place. Peaceful and cool in the early evening on a hot summer day. Lots of 350-to-380 yard par 4s.
