Course Review and Comments

Two nines are very different. The front nine is very enjoyable, and a great value. The back nine is quirky, and maybe even unfair at points. The town keeps it in good condition and its rarely crowded. All in all, its a pretty good course for the price.

Course Design Rating
Course Design Comments Front nine is the newer of the nines and is a nice parkland layout with good variety. Back nine was designed by a family as part of an estate and it shows. A few greens are 10-20 feet above the fairway, also has an uphill par 3. I'd give the front 9 3 stars and the back nine 2.
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Rating
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Comments Greens seem to be in good shape and do roll true, but pretty slow. Tees, fairways, and bunkers are in average shape.

Course Facilities Rating
Course Facilities Comments I don't believe they have a range. The pro shop has only the bare essentials, but there is a small area for drinks.
