    Let’s put it like this....2019 County Am 1st round one person shot under par. This course is short yes, but you better have a good short game if you bomb it off tee. Tough up and downs when you miss the greens, which are small and is the defensive wall. The Par 3’s are also very good. When the greens are fast, that’s the best time to play. For the $ you can’t beat this for a round of golf any day of the year.

    Only plays a little over 6100 from the back tees. The course is small and cramped up. Somewhat of a shooting gallery in some spots. Power lines all over the back nine. A few of the tee boxes need a little work but surprisingly the greens are very good for a city municipal course. The local golfers are friendly and staff is too. It's not a bad place to play for the money.
