They keep the course in excellent shape. I believe it a very fair course for all levels. Fairways are pretty wide, but you might get punished you fall too far off into the rough. The greens are soft and large with a little bit of a "bowl" shape to help keep green shots from rolling off, but if you miss the green, those "bowl" edges can be tricky to navigate off the edge of the green. I really enjoy the course, but prefer the price to be about $20 cheaper for 18 holes.
