I have played Paxon for years. It is a nice course with some challenging holes. Not very long, but still challenging; especially #18. A par 5 with a tight fairway. Trouble everywhere. The course has some "target" golf holes. Even though they are not very long, your placement needs to be good. Especially #13, which to me, is one of the toughest holes anywhere. Your drive is uphill to a blind fairway, trouble on the left. Your approach is to a very small green with trouble everywhere except straight. Green is surrounded by bunkers and a steep drop-offon the left. Paxon has always been in great shape. Friendly staff. Decent bar, although small.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Average course for the area

Excellent course even though it is a public one. It is a position course and can score well if you scan the placement of sand traps and water. Kept in excellent condition by caring course maintenance group. Limited food selection. Large dining room for special functions. Pro available for instructions. Limited supply in products for sale. Clothing, shoes, bags, club sets and single clubs available (putters, drivers, etc.) Adequate carts available, however, you can walk if able. Back nine a little hilly for walkers - it's a little more difficulat than front 9. I have played there in Ladies Group for over 20 years - had 4 holes in l and l eagle there.

Would travel: 0-10 Miles
Bottom line: I would play again, Ranks with the best in this price level, Best course in the area, Bargain priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
