    Calling it a cow pasture would be an insult to cows.

    The course is very nice, surrounded by houses may be a negative however. The course is mostly par three in every hole. The back nine is a much more tranquil and spacious area in comparison to the front nine. Staff was very friendly and the price was more than reasonable, would definitely go again.
