It had been a few years since I played here. I have always enjoyed this old style traditional course. The reason I do not play here often is because it’s always super busy in the early morning, combined with a lot of back nine play, which adds up to some slower rounds than I prefer. However, today, we were the third group off behind a couple twosomes, and I guess because we just took it nice and easy, we only waited a few times, playing in just under 3 hours on a beautiful autumn morning.
I was surprised just how nice the greens were. They were smooth, rolled well, and very receptive to shots. Fairways were a mixed bag, some great lies, some not so good. Rough was at best fair, very spotty, thin, etc. Only in one bunker and it was fine. Since we played “the tips” that area of the tee boxes were in good shape, but many of the tees had areas which were rather beat up.
This is such a charming little course. Wish there were more of these type old style, traditional, walkable courses around. It’s just fun basic no frills golf at an affordable price. ($26 for green fee, hot dog and drink)
