Course Review and Comments
Ok, so I started the day on the first tee. The course is a freakin' piece of shit! There are dead spots of grass on the fairways and the green looks like a moron has been trying to take care of it. After I finished the front 9, I spent a solid 45 minutes searching for the 10th tee. Turns out, the 10th whole IS the first hole. Pretty awesome stuff. After my boring 9 holes (times 2 = 18) I went into the clubhouse, which looks like it was designed in 1832, before the time of television or any other modern technology. After spending $98 on two cold hot dogs and three warm beers, I left feeling ill. Two days later, I still haven't stopped vomiting.
Other than those issues, this is a great course designed by the late William Diddle, who was a sham course designer at best. As a matter of fact, he didn't even remember a back 9.

The course is in excellent shape, better than most around. Greens recently seeded and filling in nicely. Avoid the trees for better scores.

Not a private course. Larry isn't an intellectual. Just FYI, there are some pretty sweet spots on this course, like the 6th (a long par 5) and the 15th (another long par 5).

I agree with Larry. This course is one that seems to challenge me time after time. Although there are only 9 holes, the layout of the course is such that every time you play it is like playing a new

This course was designed and built in 1945 by William Diddle. It is wonderful layout that to this day is challenging.
The greens are always in great shape they are usually fast and true. While the fa

Well, I played 9 holes today even though the course was completely froze over. Greens ran a little fast, due to the ice coverage. I hit a 5 wood from the front tees on 3 and almost had a birdie. Sh

So this course is not a private course. It isn't even a public course. They are closed pretty much every day of the week, and the only real thing to do there is get drunk in the clubhouse with Ron a
