Course Review and Comments

This is a great little Par 60 Course. Par 60? Yeah...but it really lets you work on your short game. The greens are ok and they've just gotten new sand in their bunkers. Decent combination of wide open, and narrow opening, fairways. There are only a few holes that you could use a driver on, so if you need the "big drive" to feel good about your game, you won't get much of that here. This is a great place to work on your mid-distance approach shots, your greenside play, and some "rescue" shots. You've really got to work to hit your ball completely out of play (but it is doable in the adjoining neighborhood) so most balls are playable- though some will be tougher than others to rescue. The course was built in 1968 an feels like it...a little worn, a little tired, no fancy amenities. But on the weekends they do have a "beer girl" on the course, and their little club house is comfortable in a "old diner" kind of way. They've got an ok practice range with a combination of mats and turf to hit from. The best news is that you can get in 18 holes for about $25 in under 3 hours...and have a good time doing it. West End is a great place to get ready for playing the more expensive courses in town. Family friendly, no "stuck-up" attitudes, good staff, great, little place.
