Sadly the greens are poorly maintained and have patches of longer grass throughout (think bounce, bounce, bounce), maintenance doesn't seem to notice nor take care of it. Pasture fairways leaving much more to be desired. Not many options in the area, high price due to low competition which they put in the register while probably paying the local high school kid to mow greens and set cups an inch too low (and changed once a week it seems). I have played this course many times and the same story each time not to mention regular tees are Never used in the fall or winter with a couple of temp greens mixed in. Layout and vegetation is interesting enough but not much care at all is put into this course.
