The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The course has a great mix of variety to challenge any level of player. The grounds are fairly well kept. There isn't a bar cart but drinks can be purchased at the club house.

I have been to some other golf courses, so I would give this golf course a 3, because I don't really like the lay out. I almost got lost twice. So you have to pay attention to the map...good customer service though.

Course management and club selection is very important. Fun for the weekend golfer and good for the experienced player to hone their skills.

Very small course, but its unique and quirky. Its not very tough from any tee. It is open year round and the staff is usually pretty nice. However, there is a Brad Sheer that works there and he is very rude.
