Staff was awful, rude, disrespectful, and I was overcharged. The level of arrogance is astronomical. Not worth time or money.

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: Better courses for less nearby

Not being a resident, it was not as good a deal for ne as the other eviewers but was still a fair price. Good conditions and fun layout. Maybe a little too hilly which left some tough lies.

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

City owned course gets a lot of play, but is well maintained and has some exceptional holes. On most holes you only see the hole you are playing. Walkers welcome but it is a challenging walk
