This place is easily an attempt to squeeze in facilites that beg for convenience to the course's patrons. A little-small to average sized driving range is right next to the clubhouse, and the green is nothing special, although the range was much better than I expected it to be. The shop boasts a better selection than the upper-scale daily courses in the area, priced competitively with the retail stores in the area. During the week in-season, it doesn't attract a whole lot of attention, with attendants consisting mostly of diplomats, slow seniors, and students, looking for a bargain in 9 holes of golf. The course is links-styled, which was surprisingly attractive, not up close, however. The quality of the course is lackluster, with the set-up making up for it. It's very up-and-down factoring in the change of altitude the course boasts per hole. Every hole seems to have a new challenge about it, unique from the rest, from yardage, to size of approach area, to surrounding hazards and the altitude from tee to fairway to green. I found myself enjoying it for the money I spent and the friendly people I played with and conversed with at the shop. I would come here again when I am in a pinch for time and need for a bargain, with a considerable forte of golf balls in my bag. The lateral hazards do tend to be magnetic. This is a fantastic course for less-than-upscale expectations and a good place to bring beginners of all ages.
