This nine-hole executive course prides itself on providing a relaxing, enjoyable golf experience. The rural setting is outstanding. The fairways are gently rolling and the greens are relatively small in size. The putting surfaces are challenging due to their design, which inhibits roll-up approach shots from being successful. There is a smattering of trees on the course, as well as natural sage brush. The signature hole is #8, a 245-yard, par 4, which requires an approach to the green through a pair of trees. Golfers who have played the course continue to remark on the course's friendly, serene atmosphere. If golfers are looking for hurry-up golf, they are missing their mark on this course. This course is meant to savor every moment of its rustic ambiance.

Rough but improving, Nov 20, 2007
|Plus side: low cost and informal. Minus side: pretty rough, no water, no sand, lots of bare dirt and rocks, easily lost balls in very weedy rough. Greens are generally pretty rough. Still, fun course for undemanding newbies and average over-bogey golfers. Popular with local seniors. Notable holes include the following. #2 is longish, straight, par 4 from elevated tee with asphalt road on left and nasty rough on right. At long drive landing area, there is a utility pole in the center of the fairway and a walnut tree at the right edge, and just beyond, a gully crosses the fairway and can come into play on a long drive, or second shot from a short drive. #3 is par 5 dog leg right, gully across fairway at moderate drive landing area, OB for tee shot and second shot on the right and through the dogleg, OB into a goat pasture on left for second shot from short drive. #6 is par 4 with OB bordering an asphalt road on right, and open bare dirt through a very rough gully starting in front of women's tees and angling along the left edge to typical tee shot landing distance. #8 is par 4, most demanding hole on the course. It is slight dogleg right through narrow opening between trees on right and utility pole and bare dirt/rocks on left. Normal distance slice will go OB into a posted alfalfa field, and hook or long, straight shot will go OB into driving range. Ideal drive is slightly left, slight fade to keep out of left OB. Long hitters can drive several of the par 4 greens. Even over-bogey golfers can average one or more pars per 9 holes, and an occasional birdie, but, this course is not for the discriminating golfer.|

Wow, Aug 21, 2006
from Renton, Wa
|The course starts simple and wide open, than bamb. The #3 par 5 shows you that the rest of the day accuracy is necessary.|
