$36 (cart included), played on Saturday, August 2015 at 11:13 AM

Played here at 1130 on a Saturday in August for $43, which included a breakfast sandwich, and lunch sandwich for later. A fair price, I thought, for a weekend round.

Course is showing signs of wear: I last played here about six years ago, and conditions have gone downhill. Lots of broadleaf grasses everywhere, including on some greens, weedy tee boxes, and a couple of burnt-out greens (#12 and #17). In addition, cart paths are in need of work, as they are falling apart. There is not much local competition in this price range, so perhaps it's a motivation issue.

Layout is good: a fair amount of verticality, a few water hazards, and the bunkers are moderately sized and reasonably placed. As a senior, I don't think it's walkable, but the young 'uns might give it a try. Some greens have quite steep slopes (#14!!), so pin position is more critical than usual. When in doubt, stay below the hole!

Overall, it's a decent "neighborhood" course that'll never be confused with its upscale cousin, Greystone, which is a few miles and several dollars away.

A word about the staff: I encountered seven: everyone was outstanding! Exactly the kind of customer-oriented people I'd hire for my own shop.

Would travel: 10-20 Miles, Vacation Worthy
