Played here 2-19-14, as a refugee from the snow-covered north. Conditions were wet, so we were Cart-Path Only, which lengthened the round quite a bit. Design is very compact, and in some instances, dangerously so, as a number of tees and greens are literally "in the line of fire," especially the green/tee complex at #2, #3, and #4. Similarly, there are a number of parallel fairways, with minimal separation, so balls flying from adjacent holes are not unusual. BTW, I gathered these impressions on a pretty slow day, in terms of numbers of players on the course: I can only imagine what it's like on busy weekends. We had a member in our group, and he agreed that balls do fly around quite a bit, but noted "I've never been hit." I guess that's a positive... Otherwise, the design is pretty well done, considering that the course is absolutely flat. Good use of water and some mounding, but not a lot. Bunkers are not in play all that much and did not seem especially punitive. Greens were medium sized, all had some slope to them, and were in excellent condition for this time of year, putting moderately fast and true. Overall course conditions was pretty good for this time of year, especially with the very wet few weeks recently. Course is very well marked with discs in the fairways. Because of the small footprint, the course is walkable. Staff was at a minimum, but those we met were cordial and efficient. Clubhouse is a nice size, and the pro shop was well stocked with the essentials. Overall, Nutter's Crossing is a nice neighborhood course, but not worth a long trip, and certainly not as a destination. I won't be back, as there are many other courses in the general area that are superior...and less hazardous to one's health.

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: Average course for the area
