This course is special because of its outstanding pro shop staff. They are all friendly and customer-oriented. They make you feel welcome. Regarding the course, it could be better maintained and capital improvements should be added. However, it is still a fun course with great...More

There was 3 cats, 2 white ducks and 1 rooster! I still think the rooster took my ball but oh well. I have no idea why animals are roaming free on a course. It was very challenging but on on one of the holes (can't...More
