Unfortunately for this course, they hold themselves out as “
The negatives for this course was that there was a couple of sections where the “rough” ramped up out of bounds, and it was tough to tell if this was because of the aforementioned handicapped accessibility. Normally on course with this sort of access, they clearly define the rules for when the ball goes out of bounds in those areas. This was not the case on this course. Also, this course uses the dreaded metal rimmed cups, which drives us crazy because of the ease at which the ball slides by the rim of the holes. They also don’t give a very satisfying sound when the ball drops in the hole.
Also, we visited this course in late April, so it was tough
to tell how good the water would look as it hasn’t been turned on yet. Overall though, it’s a nice course in an area
that is lacking in courses in general and worth stopping by if you are in the

When I was waiting to play the first hole I used
the practice putting green. I should have known I was in for a surprise. Many
of the greens were slanted so badly that speed wasn't a factor at this course.
I usually try to putt my ball so that if I miss it
will roll about a foot by the hole. Well, at this course it's pretty much
impossible on half the holes. I also had a few putts that were going a perfect
speed only they simply would not roll in because of the metal cups. I hated the
metal cups because when you play for break many times the ball will roll in the side but with the metal it just slid over. They also had the dreaded mound hole (probably my least favorite design) where if you miss the 1st putt it rolls 10 feet away.
Positive aspects of the course were the greens, the landscaping, and they had a nice ice cream parlor right next to it. The greens looked fairly new and they were only scuffed in a few places. The best feature of the course was definitely the landscaping though, they had big oak trees that provided nice shade, a very impressive waterfall that was cool to see, and they had a couple cave holes.
A good course for those just out to have a good time, but I wouldn't recommend to anyone who wants to work on their putting skills.
