Outstanding for a public course.  Challenging and aesthetically pleasing. If I can nitpick, my only complaint is that there is rarely a beverage cart girl on duty until after school is out for summer.

This golf course is simply amazing!  One of the absolute best public courses in Southern Johnson County.  They have just spent a wad of cash on renovations and it has gone over well.

This is a medium size 18-hole course that features 6,414 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 70 . The course rating is 70.3 and it has a slope rating of 119 on Zoysia grass.  They have an excellent drainage system which allows you to ride on the fairways even after it has rained.  They also have a night range which has multi targets and is open until 10pm.  The only other golf course that I know of that does that is Smiley's and they are open until 10pm.

You are surrounded by beautiful scenery.  The holes are challenging and really make you play hard.  The markers for yardage are a little hard to find, but once you understand the system, it makes for a pretty fast game.  You will also find some of the nicest people on this course.  Many times, there are angry hackers out running around, but most people know how to play on this course.

You are surrounded by some pretty expensive homes and a nature trail that goes around the front nine.  Towards the back nine you can here all of the kids that are playing soccer at the new complex screaming and having a good time and it doesn't really affect the way that you play.  I know some people have a hard time when there is a noise in the background, but I guess it just blends in with the course.  I don't even really hear it.  

You would think that a course like this would be expensive, but it is actually very reasonable.  Peak hour green fees are $27 and cart is $15, so if you ride you are looking at $42 during the week.  I recommend walking this course as it is not hard to walk at all.

This course does get packed on the weekend, so your best bet is an evening.  After 5pm they have super twilight which is only $24 to ride.
