$26 (cart included), played on Saturday, July 2017 at 7:30 AM

I've meant to stop in and play this 6,525yd / 71.6 / 127 / Par 72 Links (Front 9) & Wooded (Back 9) layout (4 sets of tees) for quite some time.

The biggest drawback was the 2-mile dirt road to get to this very nice conditioned layout that had the many seniors paying $27 for this Saturday morning 18 hole round.

The course is a good balance of four (4) Par 3's (Avg 160 yards), ten (10) Par 4's (Avg 380 yards) and four (4) short Par 5's (480 yards) that had a challenge to them. Tee boxes and fairways were cut very nice and in good condition BUT could use some "Divot Repair" dirt on at least the par 3's. Most greens had at least one (1) sand trap and a grass bunker protecting it and held very good to all iron shots. Coming up short to all greens made saves come easy. Holes #9 & #18 are both Par 5's that force 220-yard drives to lay up to avoid the water protecting the greens (100 yd water carry) that you can't see from your drives.

Shot a clean 40/40 w/36putts (No O.B.'s) as the average size greens were very friendly today. Worth stopping in and playing this great course just off I-94 if traveling through this area that caters to Seniors, as Saturday morning pricing showed.

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