This is my "local" course. Its less than 5 minutes drive from my house and I play here about once a year just to check if its gotten any better. First off, prices are high for what you get. If the price matched the quality, it might be worth it for a few of the holes on the course. The club house is dated and nothing special. "Restaurant" is far from being actually that. Practice facilities are mediocre. A small flat putting green right outside the club house with no chipping or pitching areas. There is a grass range at the back of the parking lot, but half the time there arent ANY yardage markers. Conditions of the course are always sub par. The ground is rock solid which makes taking divots quite painful. Many times the grass is burnt out and theres just dirt patches everywhere. This all plays into the next part. The layout! A few of the holes have huge undulations that make holding the fairway near impossible with the hard conditions. A couple other holes have completely blind tee shots and with the hard ground and undulations, you can easily lose a ball that lands perfectly in the middle of the fairway. Ive had bad experience with the staff as well. Very rude at times. Ive been asked if I could only hit balls toward one side of the range mid bucket so they could "start closing up" and cleaning up all the balls out there after they sold me a bucket. They could have just said they intend to be closing soon... With all the bad, there are a few decent holes on the course and a couple of them offer a nice view the right time of year. I wish it was better as it has potential with the piece of land they have. If only they could sink some money into it and hire a proper course architect to fix a lot of the issues.
Good food, reasonable prices, and a challenging local course. Great venue for a get-together or to take out the family for a golf excursion. Lots of competitive options for advanced golfers....

A really good test. You dont need to hit it long, but you need to hit it in the right spots. Bring your short game, and dont be above the hole on #6. Great burger at the turn!
Course was well maintained. Portions of the course are very tightly packed. Youll tee off 10 feet from the green in some situations.
Course was in good shape. Lots of geese on numbers 10 &11plus the associated droppings.
Great conditions, nice layout. Too many geese around the lake though.
One of the most beautiful back 9 (holes) in the Northeast
course is in great shape. challenging.
Very friendly staff
