There’s been a lot of rain, and footing is a little difficult in places. Also, grass is high and the creek is pretty high. Easy to loose a disc in it.

Upcoming events:

Professional caliber; designed as a gold level course. Beautiful rolling hills with some water hazards. Good variety, from light to heavily wooded. Accuracy and placement as important as distance. Extra large cement tee pads. Allow 3-4 hours to complete all 24. Very challenging course, not recommended for novice players.

Current Projects:
Replacing tee pads about 5 per year, first 5 completed in 2021, next 5 to be completed before winter 2022. New concrete pads are 6'x13'.
