$36 (cart included), played on Thursday, September 2011 at 10am

Played here 9-15-11 for the first time in several years. Paid $39 as a senior with the Tee Time book, a fair price for the quality of the course. Any more would be too much.

When I played here some years ago, I did not care for the course, or more specifically, the ATTITUDE of the staff. I am happy to say that all has changed: Pat, the pro shop staffer when I checked in, could not have been more gracious and welcoming, the starter was cordial and very helpful, and the on-course beverage cart lady, Michele, was a real delight.

The course itself has always had a problem with drainage, and today was no exception, especially in view of the very heavy rains from Tropical Storm Lee this past weekend, however, the grounds team has done a great job in getting the course back in shape, and the only signs of residual water were in several of the bunkers, which were still puddled, but being pumped out. Remarkably, the greens were in excellent condition overall, and putted smooth and true. Fairways were quite nice, even lush in some areas.

Course design is somewhat mixed: some very nice holes, like #1 and #10, and some real dogs, like #9 (a sinuous par 5 with very tight and sloped landing areas) and #16 (a par four with serious gunch along the left side of the fairway, and more of the same for the last 100 yards in on the right).

Overall, the course is a fair test of golf, and under drier conditions, would be a lot more fun! I recommend you try it...but call ahead, as it gets a lot of local play, including the high school golf team!

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Average course for the area, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
