Haven't played here since 2004 and decided to revisit Mike Hills (PGA Tour Pro) course and give it a rating.

Front 9 layout is the original layout (side by side) playing 2,548yds Par 34 with great conditions but no real problems. The Back 9 steps up with rolling fairways w/ bunkers, non-typical greens, green side bunkers well placed with 2,924 yds / Par 35 of new challenges.

Yardage markers could be better but most second shots are lower irons which are easy to figure.

Holes 16, 17, 18 are the ones that will stay with you long after you leave, as they are the most challenging. The #16 (#1 hdcp) playing 410yds being the best, for your 2nd shot is over 180-190 yds of water to a tucked green (miss left) sitting on the bank of the pond. Follow that with a uphill, sand protected #17 at 260yds Par 4 to a "Gum Drop" green that anywhere but on the green is bad news. Finishing with #18 at 280yd Par 4 and a non-level, left to right slant fairway that will put ANY fade hit ball in the RH trees with a bogie being a gift from there.

Golfing family owned/run so they know how to maintain the course and keep the golfers coming back. Shot 38/38 w/35 putts and bogie on #18 with the next time hitting a iron off the tee to the flat 100yd marker. (That's a tip)

Its a Short layout (5,472yds/Par 69) but fun for kids and couples that want a great golfing experience from a local golfing icon.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing

They really need better yardage markers in the fairways. It was very difficult to find the markers, as they were buried in the fairways.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again
