Horrible rough filled with lots of pebbles, stones, and just dead grass. Some holes are just plain horrible to look at and make no sense. Not a very pretty course and not once did I feel inspired playing here. Sometimes you just walk up to a tee and look down your line and think to yourself, wow...this is golf. Not here whatsoever. Houses abound and yardage markers are very difficult to spot (biggest pet peeve in golf courses). I was constantly guessing my yardage and looking in vain to spot a yardage marker. If were to play here a few more times, I'm sure it would grow on me, but by the third hole I was not impressed with this course at all (yes, that quickly). Lots of uneven lies as well and lots of blind tee/approach shots. I don't mind that so much, but there are greens that are not fair and undulate severely robbing you of making birdie and par putts. Also, when playing the pin placements selected that day were laughable. Literally pins 1yd into the green and in awkward placing. It has potential I guess, but links style golf can only really be enjoyed in Ireland I suppose. Fail.

Would travel: 10-20 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
