Mark Twain Golf Course -- regular
Review by: ds This is a great Donald Ross course. The front nine features a variety of holes from straight in par 4's, dogleg right par 5's, and two uphill par 3's guarded by bunkers in front. The back nine features long par 5's and 4's with an interesting water hole on number 14. The views across the valley are great from number 4 green and number 12 tee. Deer are frequently seen on the upper level holes even though this course is in a heavily populated area. Play is kept up to pace by frequent ranger checks. The club house is old and worn but the food is good -- and cheap too.

Meadowgreens Golf Course -- 2 stars in the late summer
Review by: Jack The course is fun to play from May to mid-August. In the Spring the poor drainage makes it very soggy. As summer moves on the greens take a beating, dry out and become patched and cut. The course does not get a lot of mainteance. However, when it is mowed and firm it is fun to play and reasonably challenging. Play is fairly slow due to the fact that the course attracts a lot of new players due to the low price and the very relaxed atmosphere. If you play the back tee positions on #2, 3, 5, 6, 7 and 9 the course is challenging enough to make it interesting. It is not a long course but the greens are pretty small and you spend much of your time hiting up to the greens. Thus, it plays longer than it looks.
