Played the course on a weekday in early April. I really enjoyed the course. This is an old style public course that is secluded and has a nice comfortable welcoming feel.

The welcome starts at the club house, and ends with the "hope you enjoyed your round" from the cart guy when we returned the cart. In between, the course could be described as comfortable. It's a course that pretty much lays out in front of you, very few doglegs, generous fairways and very few protective bunkers in front of the tees. That is not to say the course is a total pushover..it is not. A 3 to 4 foot ravine with a creek parallels a number of holes and managed to capture one of my drives. There is the obligatory 165 yard over the water par-3 that can always intimidate. For me, the most difficult aspect were the small push-up greens. The greens did not hold well so a shot to the green would often roll off, and since the greens were usually elevated, the roll off could deposit your ball some distance from the green. Very few greens had back stops such as mounds or sand bunkers to prevent the ball from bounding far off the green.

The course was maintained nicely and the pace of play was great. This would be my home course if I lived within 10 miles. The price is right and course is too. I highly recommend this course.

Would travel: 10-20 Miles
Bottom line: I would play again, Average course for the area, Ranks with the best in this price level, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
