Haven’t played here since the early 1980’s so looking forward to testing my memory. I only had time for nine (9) holes so I paid my $32 ($42 18\cart) and away I went. The front 9 plays 3,178yds/117 and is a Par 36 on this 1964 rolling layout. Full green conditions from tee to green with sprinkler/blocks marked for yardages. Club house sits on top of the highest point and #1 351yd Par 4 goes downhill with green back up. The #2 171yd Par 3 is uphill and needs 2 extra clubs to get her home. The #3 487yd Par 5 is a right hand dogleg that plays fairly easy, but don’t overshoot (drop off) the green. Many of the next small and smooth greens have steep fronts, that rejects any shots coming up short. The #7 511yd Par 5 is the longest hole and plays to a uphill 2 club Green. You must play #9 215yd Par 3 from the tips, just for a reality check on your driver carry. Over all, still a nice course but overpriced by $10 - $15 for nine (9) holes. I ended up shooting 39 w/16 putts on this hazy windy day that effects ball flight from these many elevated tees.
