Had 2hrs to spare so I decided to check out this Golf learning center and see what it has to offer. Very nice practice area for hitting balls and lots of opportunities for camps, clinics and lessons. They have two (2) 9 hole courses with Blue 2,381yds / Par 32 and Green 1,356yds Par 27 to choose from. I chose to play Blue and even though its short on yardage it wasn't short on challenge. Great conditions from the manicured tee boxes, close mowed fairways to the firm/smooth average sized greens. Great yardage markers being blocks, sticks and all sprinkler heads made me leave my range finder in the bag. The #1 427yd Par 4 starts you out on a uphill climb with a green on top .....your reward. The #2 323yd Par 4 is a downhill LH dogleg from the highest point...with a great view. The #3 142yd Par 3 is a slight uphill with a green perched on the side of a hill and steep front face. (Don't go short) The #4 209yd Par 3 is a 2 club less downhill shot to a larger sized green. Number 5 is a 222yd Par 4 that plays three (3) extra club uphill to a fair sized green requiring full carry. The #6 310yd Par 4 is a slight LH dogleg that will give you 30-50yd of extra carry. This is a real "Big Dog" tee shot that makes you feel, real good. The #9 454yd Par 4 is the Hcp 1 and normally plays into the SW wind. Your tee shot has great landing area and leaves a good look at the green but not the deep LH wash out and valley to the left side. Conditions here are great for learning uneven shots at easy to find yardages. I enjoyed the relaxed yardages and pace this evening allowing me to shoot 32 w/16putts on this sunny 75 degree evening in TC. Good place to drop of the kids for a enjoyable 18 holes (2,381/1,356 Par 59) or yourself to work on uneven shots or warmup at a low price.

Would travel: 10-20 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: 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
