Only time for a quick round on the Par 35 front 9 that plays 3,021yd / 69.8 / 123 Blues down to 2,551yd / 68.7 / 114 Reds. This course maybe short on yardage (6,365yd max) but the narrow fairways, ponds and well placed sand traps are ready to grab your strays. Clubhouse is located on the top of the hill and the course flows down, around and back up the hill. #1 Par 4 at 410yds play a little downhill and long hitters beware of pond on left side of fairway. Most of these holes have slight doglegs with sand traps / trees well placed on the inside corners that force you to the outside. #4 Par 5 542yd is the #1 hcp and has a dogleg carry of 240yd to the corner or a cut shot will follow that drive. #5 Par 4 405yds is another dogleg going left so stay to the right unless a 240yd draw is in your bag. The finishing #9 160yd Par 3 is about a two (2) club uphill with front traps to catch those short shots. I found the rough very thick and challenging to advance the correct distance needed. Greens were in good shape/size but hillside greens a little tricky on reading. Ended up shooting 42 w/13 putts and if it wasn't for my green side saves, things could have gotten worse, fast. We'll worth playing if in the area and stop off at the Railroad Bar & Grill (1 mile away) for the best selection of grilled cheese sandwiches you've ever had.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing, Ranks with the best in this price level
