Course Review and Comments

I first played this course 25 years ago. I did not enjoy it! 7 years ago, I tried it again and was still disappointed. Like a fool, last month I gave it one more chance, as my game has improved quite a bit and I thought I would score better. But the course just isn't very playable. The worst aspect is that since I originally played here, the housing development has increased quite a bit. At one point, I had to drive for what seemed miles right down the street! I was certain that I'd missed a turn, but I hadn't. Eventually I returned to the course. This is swell if one is house hunting, but truly bizarre on a golf course. The course seems like an afterthought. It's just a disaster.

Course Design Rating
Course Design Comments It's often pretty to look at, but very tough to play. The holes are quite tight and a miss hit has severe consequences.
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Rating
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Comments Some of the fairways had squares of dead sod curling up at the edges. the greens were in terrible shape.
