|If you are straight off the tee you should do well here. It is a good tight course. fairly strait and flat with many trees lining the fairways. Water is in play on many holes but not overwhelmingly so. I do not consider this course and "open" course. Rather it is a first shot course. Hit it in the fairway and it is pretty easy - miss and struggle for a bogey in many cases (esp #10). Very well maintained and staff is usually friendly. One big negative...New cart paths were installed at the end of last year and they are HORRIBLE! There are way too many and in many several cases they are only a couple yds off the fairway and a then a couple of yds from the out of bounds (See #2, #4, #13, #14, and #15). Who ever mapped them out must have been drinking and should also be fired. I play this course often and regulary scuff 1-3 balls on the paths. Several of the tee boxes are not level...hopefully they will improve this.
|Fun, open course.I enjoy playing here and find it better than most north side courses for the money.

|The course is only about 6,400 yards and the price for 18 with a cart (alone) is $64

|What are you waiting for? Go and play this couse! If you don't stay in the fairways you will get to know the trees quite well. The greens are slick and slicker. Go and Enjoy.
|Absolutely loved the course, everything about it was wonderful, great greens, fairways and the price is more than fair. Country club quality, one problem We played twilight at 3pm and just when we made the turn, they were letting people off on the back... see?? The starter was very nice though. Once you get out of the clubhouse you'll have a wonderful time.
