The Staff:
The most special thing about this course is the helpful and knowledgeable staff. They are very friendly and have no problem answering any of your questions. The teaching Pro is a great guy.

The Course:
While its not a traditional Links course it is a challenging yet short course. If you are long or and play the Men's Tees (White) you may find the course to be pretty short where you are hitting 9 irons to par 5s on your second shot. The course is well maintained for a course that goes through drought conditions in summer and rainy conditions during the winter. Every green seems to have a different speed as some holes stay wet in the shade while others dry out in the sun. You will be able to determine the condition once close to the green. Overall the course probably rates as a 3 out of 5, but the staff and short game facility make up for it.

Practice Facility:
This course has a wonderful short game practice facility with a pitching green that has a green side bunker and several hole locations to practice from. You can even putt the pitching green to get a feel for the course greens. The short game practice area also has a moderately large practice green with a lot of hole locations to practice different breaks in the greens. The only thing lacking in the practice facility is the driving range. It seems like a road side range only type of setup. The range is narrow and dated with not very many targets to practice your distance. If you like a range with pins, well there are only 3 or 4 and the rest are just targets with yardage written on them that may be slightly off.

Total Review:
This course would have gotten 5 out of 5 if not for the driving range and some of the minor drainage issues on 4 or 5 holes on the course. The staff are great and friendly and the course is mixed with challenging holes to test your range/skills and easier holes to pick up some birdies. All in all for the price compared to what is around you can't beat Auburn Links if you are on a budget, but still want to play a decent course. The membership dues pay for themselves to a weekly golfer and the course also offers a savers card for those who don't want to commit to membership. Pretty much everything you could expect and more from a public course.
