This used to be a good municipal course but recently the city has been bleeding the course of funds and it is the worst of all local public courses. The bunkers need total rebuilding and the greens are not far behind. The tees are sloped from years of neglect.Maintenance involves cutting the grass, that's it. It's a shame because the layout is good and they have the revenue to sustain a very good municipal course.

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: Worse than average course for the area
