Tricky course but fun, if you play but a few times a month, if even, this is a fun challenge to keep your game around even. Some recent updates have occured, like cleaning up roots and stumps within the tee. Lots of Trees.

This is a really fun course. Good scenery some good technical shots. It is heavily forested for most of the course but there are still some big open drives. Not a whole lot of elevation change. Would recommend checking out the course map on here before you go.

Very fun and challenging course with tight throwing lanes. The addition of small signs by each basket help you find the next hole which otherwise could be confusing as a lot of the course runs through the woods
