I had not played it in several years. The overall condition is much improved and the best I have ever seen there over the last 20 years. It was also in the best condition of any course I have played yet this year. It is not a long or difficult course, but fun to play and has several excellent holes (#7,#11,#16). I would certainly recommend it for a fun round.
