    I played the course last week and must say that the skeleton grounds crew and Super must be commended.
    I was not impressed with the staff nor the "clubhouse". The clubhouse was a throwback to the 1960's without a single update. The surly bartender should be a poster child for: Tortured, Angry middle aged Moms Without a Prayer for a Life" magazine.
    She was rude and crass to all there.
