This is a very friendly golf course--an 18 hole course that goes through the woods that you can play for a cheap price and can almost always get on by walking up. That said, it is anything but a "high end" golf course--the greens are OK, the fairways are adequate, and there are trees that get in the way. For example, there is one hole where there is a tree blocking the right side of the green on a short par three. But part of the fun in golf, IMO, is figuring out what to do in situations that are unusual--if you don't want obstacles, go to the place where the windmill opens up to allow your ball through occasionally.
The real buy on the course, if you are going to play more than once, is the annual card. For a really small amount of money, you get a free round and a significant discount on future rounds.
Of course, do not expect to play this course in the October through April period--it's likely to be under snow. And early in the season, the greens are not yet really very good. But hey, if you're out here for fun, this is a fun course.
The course has decent gas carts, is very walkable, and has a friendly staff.
