Course Review and Comments

I think the previous golfer has this course confused with Forest Lakes, par 72, 18 hole course more north on Beneva. This course is just exactly what you would expect for its location. VG is easy, yes. But, it plays to that part of the game That we all need work on, the short game. Its very reasonable priced for season. Considering the traffic VG has, the green are in remarakeable condition. Not blazing fast, but more so than you would think; it will bite you. The front nine, though shorter than the back, requires much more control of that approach iron. Every hole is bordered on the right by a steep hill that always slopes away from the green, even a short miss can be disasterous; the rough is very thick and almost impossible to find. The back nine caters more to the middle iron. The rough though not as thick, is bounded by out of bounds markers, keeping the requirement for control paramount.

If you are a light to mid distance driver, you will have four opportunities to exercise your need. But, again narrow fairways is always a factor.

But, to dismiss Village as something less than a par 72, is wrong. Those that would do more than walk in, play, and leave would miss out of the cafe inside.
