    Love the course. Very interesting layout and in great shape. Play can be very slow as course does not seem to care about teaming up twosomes.

    Very interesting layout that has potential.

    A couple very pretty holes, the Par 3 3rd was very nice however the old bridge that was left with just old metal still there took away from what would be a stoic hole that could be used to show-case the track.

    The most interesting 6th Horse-Shoe Hole.

    12 was a pretty hole with a very interesting green.

    No Starter on the first tee which lead to a long wait on every tee box because of no time allowed between groups. Over booked course or under managed tee times. Yes it is important to get every time allotted played, to create the most revenue, however standing on every tee box with 3 groups aligned on every hole made for a long wait and play atmosphere.

    Understandably the greens had been recently punched and sanded, (very good for future play) but that should reduce the cost to play. To pay a full rate (we did not as we booked on golfnow.com) would be robbery.

    The fairways were ok for a mid-range municipal course but not to standards of a semi-private golf course.

    Very little markings of distance so you should bring a GPS. They did have small blue disks (200) and small red (100) yard markers but you had to hunt to find them. 150 white stakes clearly visible.

    Carts were standard low level seemed to run ok, but no windshield or bag cover for misty days of play. Sand for the most part did not have large rocks, (although some traps did). More Crab-Grass than any other type on the course.

    I would most likely not play this course again, but I am not upset I tried it.
