Course conditions:

  • Unplayable
  • Bad
  • Decent
  • Good
  • Perfect

Fair balance between wooded and open, and lots of elevation. First 11 holes utilize a no longer used ball-golf course, requiring smart play, as clearly defined OB stakes and paths come into play. 12-18 are wooded and technical with clearly defined fairways and punishing rough.
