I have played this course at least a hundred times, because it is very near my house, and allows regulars to set their own marching order at daylight! We start at about 6:15 and are generally finished by 10:00. The conditions on this course are generally average to slightly better than any comparable courses in the area. The layout can be very friendly if you keep the ball in the fairway, but a few holes have the ability to punish you severely for a missed shot, particularly off the tee. On several holes you can hit the fairway, yet still be obstructed by the irregular treelines and the occasional isolated large tree. Water is dangerously close on a number of holes and can take the driver out of you hands. On number nine, for example, a well struck three wood can find the lake that crosses the entire fairway. Don't bother with the driver on this one either. I haven't seen it cleared in almost fifteen years. In short, there are great scores to be had. But if you have a few slips, you can put up mid-eighties before you know what happened. For the price, it's the best to be found.

Would travel: 10-20 Miles, Vacation Worthy

The only current problem with this course for me is the hardness of the greens. It is very difficult to hit onto or chip onto the greens and make the ball stop.

This is a nice course for the money. The greens and fairways were in good shape. It takes about 4.5 hours to play on Saturday morning.
