Course Review and Comments

As a member since 1993, I have seen this club improve each year. There is a long term capital improvement plan. MCC requires accuracy off the tee and in the fairway; errant shots are severely punished, as there is out of bounds on every hole, sometimes on both sides. Target landing areas are small; usually you must be on a specific side of the narrow fairway to set up the approach shot. The terrain is very hilly, and there is water on 7 holes. In fact, only number 1 is level, and without water! All of the other holes have hills, water, or both. First time players usually have difficulty scoring well; bring lots of golf balls if you're not an honest single digit handicap.

Course Design Rating
Course Design Comments Front nine designed by RMG, but altered when back nine was built. Two par 3's, numbers 3 and 4, were combined to make a 410 yard par 4. Back nine was designed by a different architect. This course is very hilly, with numerous blind tee shots. The course ratings as they are listed are incorrect; the slope from the blue tees is 128; from the white tees, 126. CR is 71 and 69.9
