Wonderful municpal gem

City owned 18 and 9 hole executive course. Good test for all levels of golfers. Greens are firm, fast, and fair. Good food at Clubhouse and on turn on full course.

I am a college player and I have played golf courses all around the world. This is a good golf course but with very bad workers. The people in the pro-shop were unexperienced and rude. The just want your money, they dont care about your experience.

The course is an old one. Some people swear by it, but I found it convoluted and tricky. I will play there again, but there are other courses I prefer.

Nice golf course. Almost need to play it once to know where to hit the ball on some holes. The range is closed on Monday mornings until 9 or 10 am for maintenance so be aware. For non residents it's $40 for golf and $15 each for a golf cart. Local resident walking rate is $18.

Loved the course. Greens, tees, and fairway in great shape for a downtown muni. Fairly wide open too. We actually walked it and that was a true challenge as almost every hole is up and down. Good traps and bunkers. Nice small putting green and driving range. Prices are jacked up a bit for non-residents, but for a downtown course... More

We played both the executive 9 hole course and the full 18. The full 18 is a good challenge and the price is not overwhelming. The 9 is good fun if you need an 1 1/2 hour game.

My friend arrived a day early so we decided to phone around for some golf. Called the night before. Given a 7:30 tee time. Perfect day weather wise and a perfect atmosphere for golf.

Great golf course, we hired clubs (bit battered) and buggies bought hats, grinned, had giggles and enjoyed the golf. Course is in an amazing setting in the middle of downtime, with fantastic views. The greens were a bit furry but the rest of the course was well layed out and a good but not too tough challenge. A shout goes... More
