$16 (cart included), played on Tuesday, April 2019 at 2:30 PM

I was traveling through this area on a 50 degree but sunny Spring afternoon and decided to get the clubs out of the trunk. During the summer, this is normally a very busy and popular golf destination for Locals. I'm taking advantage of the Spring rate, $20 18/cart and playing this 6,725yd / 71.4 / 124 Par 36/36 open but tree lined layout.

Starting out on #1 524yd dogleg Par 5 will get the rust off quickly. The return on #2 390yd and #3 389yd Par 4's get those long irons out early so #4 181yd Par 3 will play a little easier. Even though the holes play side by side, there is plenty of separation in distance and trees to keep focus on your target. Tee boxes (4) are well manicured and marked, that setup for good views of the sculptured/mowed fairways leading up to the mostly, sand trap protected greens. Greens are average size with some slight undulation to the normal flat landscape. The Back 9 starts out the same as the front, with #10 an 543yd Par 5 followed up by #11 an 198yd Par 3, then a straightaway 401yd Par 4. Good yardage markers are found throughout the fairway and I saw a lot of 200yd markers this afternoon. The holes #17 390yd Par 4 and #18 525yd Par 5 are great finishing holes for this 1959 well designed and matured course.

I ended up shooting 40/41 w/31 putts in 2.5hrs and look forward to returning as conditions firm up and warmer weather returns.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Bargain priced based on quality and competitive area pricing, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing, Ranks with the best in this price level
