Nice course. The day I played it, Les Bolstad was in good shape. The setup is a little quirky with a parking lot set apart from the club house with a warning at the entrance that management is not responsible for the cars in the lot. (The whole course is behind a fence.) I played late in the day, and there was a student employee who made the rounds an hour before nightfall to pick up the flags. Other university courses are more sumptuous and challenging, but this one seems to get plenty of attention and upkeep. It is a bit hilly, and it seems to reward accuracy more than length. I would recommend based on the interest of the layout and the vibe. Holes are a bit close to tees sometimes, so wayward approaches can be a concern. This does help make it a good walking course.
The course is in rough shape compared to years past. There are a lot of rough spots on the greens and dandelions all over the course. Lumpy tee boxes. Does not seem like it has been kept very well in recent years. Similar layout and difficulty to the city courses, but many of them are in better condition which is surprising. I wouldnt pay $50 to play 18 here (w/ cart) again. Their website doesnt clarify what is considered twilight and evening so you are left guessing and they do weird things like take all the flags in before everyone is done playing in the evening.
Great course, especially for the price. Course was maintained well, although there were some drainage issues from the recent rain. Greens were a little slow, but were consistent and rolled true, fairways were a little longer than most, and the rough was usually thin. There were a fair amount of blind tee shots. The practice facilities looked great! Looked like a solid driving range and short game area, but I did not use them, so I cannot vouch for more than that
Terrible customer service, we had a raincheck and they still wanted to charge us $25 each. (no such policy posted anywhere) The staff person had no customer service skills and actually threw the cart key at us...when I called the General Manager, he was nearly as unresponsive and would take no responsibilty for how terrible his Staff person was. This is a sub par course compounded with inexperienced and rude staff. Skip golfing here!
Very fun course. Staff is meh (mostly college students, to be expected), fairways are usually great, greens are solid. Holes on the other hand - terrible. They are always in rough condition. Pricing correlates with the quality, 18 $30, Twilight $20. I hit an ace here on hole two so this course will always be in my heart!
I had a good time! Its well kept and the staff was friendly. Its the U of Ms golf teams practice golf course, so it didnt feel like you were at a traditional golf course where they treat you like a king... But the price reflected that with the affordable greens fees. I think the trade off is worth it, personally.
I had heard some terrible things about it in the past few years, so I finally decided to check it out myself. It was in just as good, if not better, shape than the other public courses in the area. Great layout that challenges you to control your shot.
Played today (July 26, 2017) to preview for our next event and course (especially the greens) is in great shape. Looks like the USGA grant and U funding has helped take them from good to great. Friendly staff and fun layout.

Greens and fairways were in terrible condition, almost unplayable. Most tees were within 5 yards of the shorter/longer tees. Only saw one drinking fountain on the front nine, no water coolers. Staff was helpful though.
I play this course about once a year. It is a very good check in to see if my game is maintaining. It takes thinking about you shots and where you want them. There are a couple of good risk reward holes.
Could be a great course but its been in bad shape for years, every time I play it I say never again. I can play it for free and dont. The have high green fees for what you get as well
Course was in absolutely horrendous shape. Incredibly inconsistent. NOT worth the money. Go play Gross National for the same price (or less) and have a much better time
Decent place for cross country skiing, but it isnt groomed regularly. Not very sheltered so wind will be an issue, however its decent for a quick ski.
I raced at the griak meet and had a good experience. I also had a good experience watching the big10 meet here a few weeks later

Sneaky tough course that rewards those that are skilled in the short game as distance is not much of a factor in a lot of cases.
The greens are slower than my carpet and more bumpy than a gravel pit. Dont bother right now it is in really poor shape
Very nice course! They had a few places that they were repairing. The holes are close together which is convenient.
The course is in good shape and gave discounts for college students! Perfect for ballin on a budget.
Greens are in great shape now. Glad to see theyve improved the conditions. Will play here a lot now
Course was in good shape, and well maintained. Also not overly crowded. Play still a little slow
