The course is on a short, nine-hole golf course, where on each golf hole the short tee to the red basket is the front nine hole, and the long tee to the blue basket is the back nine hole. There are 18 tees and 18 baskets.

The main challenge is the hilly terrain, making rollaways common for the careless or unlucky player. The greens are OB, and the sand traps are played as hazards (penalty, but play from in trap).

Greens fees: $12 per person for 18. Half that for card carrying Elks members (from anywhere in the world)

The WEEKLIES -- all day every Tuesday AND Thursday -- $8 per person: $5 greens fee, and $ to the pot. Ace and Eagle pots vary. Must establish handicap with at minumum 2 rounds to qualify for weekly cash. The course alternates between 'Main' and 'Alt' courses. Check sign up sheet for details.

Greens, bunkers, paved areas, and property lines are OB. Please do not play from the greens, play from last point disc was inbounds. Rake the bunkers if your disc goes in one. Please fix disc divots on greens too.
