Course Review and Comments
Does someone with a 30 handicap really be rating a golf course? I don't mean to sound like I'm judging someone, but I learned to play on this course. He is right about the greens being hard, but if you have the ability to spin the ball, that is what you want to some extent. This is a golf course that has been around since WWII. It was Perrin AFB before it was a college course. Yes, it has some issues with conditions, but I think they have done a pretty good job when you consider funding and pure age. It's not a tough course as far as water and bunkers are concerned, but it will challenge you to use "course management" skills to get around it with a decent score. Think of the people that started this game. They played in true "goat pastures" with not much more than sticks with blades on the end. Lets give a little credit to them keeping this place open since the "big war" and if you have to have your sponge like fairways and greens that will suck you ball in like a magnet, play somewhere else. My Father gave me the fundamentals of golf on this course and I try to play it at least twice a year with him just to keep me humble. I will score in the low 80's at my home course of Westridge where I live, and I have never scored less than 90 on this course. Don't mean to beat you down, but when you tee off on number 10, look behind you and you will see the old "brig" or military jail to those who don't know what that means. Thank You to the people behind keeping this course open. Some of us know how hard it is for you to compete with today's easy to play courses that cater to the 30 handicap player.
