This little course looks like it has seen better days. The drought in the area has no doubt impacted the course and the greens but the beer bottles and trash represent low maintenance or lack of pride in what could be a premier Par 3. The first several holes parallel the lake whose shape resembles more of a river; quite nice. Friendly people at the pro shop. Perhaps all the time and money is going to the 18 hole course; same pro shop but across the street from the par 3.
