Nice course. Two things that needed improvement: first the practice green was much slower than the actual greens on the course. Second, the rough was ridiculously high. I like a challenge,but this was excessive for a public course on the weekend. Also, most of the bunkers were great but some of the big ones were thin on sand in the middle.

The course has a lot of blind tee shots, and does not fit a bombers game. I played 3 iron off of most tees, and only got into trouble with the driver.

Greens weren't up to par. May have been early season problem. Would rather have driving range from grass as opposed to mats.
