Not too difficult of a course for an average player. Wide fairways. (Don't let #1 deter you.) They had replaced the irrigation system so some areas were still in progress, but it was still nice! Staff was friendly and accommodating.

The course was in surprisingly good for a little 9 hole course. There is enough trouble to keep things interesting. There are marmots on the course and I think a few took our balls that ended up in the woods (yikes). We did see marmots...More

Well maintained, water available thru out. Reasonably priced. A few holes were aerated but greens in good shape with very few divets. Staff friendly, course challenging for a 9-hole course. Played twice. Clubhouse nice with bar and food.
