    Depending who is the pro, this course sometimes has lots of dusty areas due to lack of grass. In my opinion, it makes it look dumpy and cheap. I wish that the management would seed the bald spots.

    Have been playing this course since it opened in 1984. My 31 year old son has been playing with me since he was 7 years old, the back 9 in the morning.

    I must say for the reasonable price and the friendly staff it makes up for other areas that may be lacking. Can be challenging from the tips.

    The course was surprisingly... not terrible. The greens were in great shape. The fairways could've been worse, and there were few houses along the course. It's very fair, but with tree lines fairways, I actually had to chip out on a few arrant drives. overall good course for a good price.
