The round was fun, but not much of a challenge. If you are a 12 handicap or less don't waste your day. Spend a little more money and challenge yourself . The staff was very rude and grumpy, but its a bunch of old men so I almost expected it.
Fun little course. Postage stamp Greens, very flat, play this course to work on your short game, fairways and greens were well maintained both times i played, and for $ it was a decent deal. I will pay again for sure, if only for the history, old Army Course. HOpe it stays around and doesnt get built on.
Not a fan. Course is in bad shape, holes aren't that different from each other, and not very challenging. 8th hole is stupid. 485 yard Par 5 that any 10 handicap or better could reach in 2, but to keep that from happening, they put OB stakes 20 yards right of the fairway, and this "OB" is just the 13th fairway. Then they put a random pond right in front of the green to make people not go for it. If you have to do all that to make a hole challenging then the course overall can't be that impressive, and it's not.
I really enjoy this course for a number of reasons:
1. It never seems to be particularly crowded
2. Very affordable - 18 holes with a care is around $40 bucks
3. Very friendly staff
The course itself was apparently a favorite of President Eisenhower's, and the layout favors those golfers who slice (or fade). I'm not that guy, so it's a bit more challenging for those of us with a consistent snap-hook.
There is some water, but not much. Be sure to look for "Ike's Tree" smack in the middle of one of the par 4's (It's got a sign on it for your convenience).
This used to be an old military course, and while it is now open to the general public, it sits amongst old military style housing. An added bit of fun for us veterans...
