    Great course wonderful people. This executive course will surprise you. Looking at the score card you may think to short, to boring to be interesting. Wrong! The course is a true executive with no par 5s and relatively short par 4s, but the greens will humble you. Not all greens are difficult but 2 or 3 on each nine can sneak up and bite you with a 3 putt or worse. They are not as large as south suburban greens but the speed and slope will remind you of south suburban's treacherous greens. Try it you'll like it!

    Tough course. You will use every club in your bag.
    Greens are very difficult to 2 putt. The employees
    are so professional and nice.

    This is a deceptive gem of a course. Sadly it carries the moniker of being an "executive course" b/c of the par, but it shouldn't. As a result it gets lots of new and inexperienced players....and on a tough/challenging layout. It makes for slow play. That's the one downside.

    The course is very challenging and one of the best-kept fairways and greens you will play, hands down. They do a great job on it and I've played it many times over the years.

    The practice facility is terrific, lots of room. The clubhouse is comfy, a lovely outside patio and Bobbie at the grill is a charmer who will do whatever to make it a pleasant 19th hole.

    You can drive, but irons are the challenge here. The par3s are not gimmes (except #2 which is easiest). Most are over a gully, a gulch or some other hazard that makes accuracy a premium. No.8 is the prettiest hole, very long Par4 that's a pleasure to play.

    Most holes are tricky the first few times you play them. No15 is deceptively short, but unless you play it right, you won't get relief...but looks like a piece of cake.

    A great place to get a round done in under 4 hours (when slow play isn't a factor) walking! It's great.

    Nice exec course, the problem is the pace of play. We like to knock out 9 holes after work. The past few rounds we have teed off about 5:45 the first hole (same problem front or back) is fine then the slow down starts. We run into a couple of groups waiting to hit at the tee. No Marshall , no one cares, we even got behind a sevensome last time because a group called the "Putter Pirates" decided it would be just peachy if they all played together. If you like a six hour round on an exec course try the Links.
