Downing Municipal Golf Course


Featured Golf Course Review:
Downing Municipal Golf Course -- good muni course
Review by: David Downing is a long, flat muni course that is well-kept and still a reasonably good deal ($22 to walk on weekends). Bring your 3-wood, because you're going to need it. The greens are quick but easy to read with few double-breaks. The par-3's are all 180-plus yards, except for one that always seems to be into the wind. The fairways are wide and fairly straight. The groundkeepers let the rough grow long for a muni, especially when a local tournament is coming up. Downing gets a lot of play, and weekend tee times fill up within an hour during peak season. Good, solid muni course.

Mound Grove Golf & Recreation -- could be so much better
Review by: David Mound Grove is no 5-star course. The greens are bumpy, the tee boxes are not kept up and the pace of play is frustratingly slow. I played the front 9 when it first opened, and it hasn't improved at all with age. It is a difficult course, especially 4,5,6 and the entire back 9, which was wedged into a tight fit. No. 5 is a narrow, severe dogleg right where you must hit an iron if you hit the ball well at all. Mound Grove would be a 3-star course if it was kept in better condition and the pace of pay was a bit quicker. It has taken me three hours to play the front nine!
