Course Review (conditions, experience, cost, etc.): 

This course is a 'country' course.  Played once on a perfect day in November, 2015. Management was extremely friendly but due to a Golfnow issue, they were overbooked and out of carts.  Not holding that against them, but I won't try and judge the normal pace of play. 

Course wise, it's easy to find off the highway.  About 5 minutes off the exit.  Parking is pretty small so I don't think this course gets a lot of play.  Basic double-wide trailer for a club house with snacks, drinks, bathrooms, etc.  Maybe a small grill area but I don't recall as I didn't spend a lot of time there.

Course is about 6500 from the blues and 6000 from the whites.  Tee boxes could be better.  The course looks to mainly be land that's been mowed, but not really seeded for fairways.  So what you have to hit off of and what sort of lie you get can be hit and miss.  Maybe it was some damage from the prior winter, not sure, but the fairways were pretty poor.  Greens where surpisingly good. I think this is where they spend their limited resources.  Rolled well, nice pace, and no crabgrass growing through them which was a real surprise given the rest of the course.  So I will give the owner's credit. 

Difficulty is not too much of a challenge here. Pretty wide landing areas off the tee.  No bunkers and only a few water hazards to contend with.  Most holes are straight on slight doglegs.  There is some elevaton change on most holes.  Big problem is course navigation.  There's not much signage to keep you going to the right place so if you've never played this course, you'll wind up on the wrong hole at some point.  We did.  Holes intertwin too much without clearly marking which hole to approach next.  We accidently hit onto hole #12 thinking we were on #4. 

So depending on what you're looking for, this might be a course to stop by.  Working on your game and want wide open tee shots and good greens, this might work.  But if you like reasonably cared for course conditions, this might not be the place.
