“A poor mans hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

At first view, you might think Fitzsimmons is an outdated course that will eventually be retired. However, it deserves ink for a great bargain. Most of the course is doglegs and the fairways are narrower to average over a normal course and the greens are a tad bit smaller. Its excellent for walkers and offers great play if you like short shots or for those of you that like to let it fly, there are 5 excellent par 5's that require 3 solid shots.
The Greens are well maintained and the staff does a good job of accommodating your needs. The club also offers some popular history having the "Ike" tree on the middle of the 6th Hole that Eisenhower made famous. It was designed by the army corps of engineers in 1938. Its not a country club course, but its a little tucked away Municipal course that will challenge good golfers.
I have played this course over 30 times and want to make sure its many enjoyable parts are appreciated for those players that are learning to play golf.
The driving range is real grass and they have 2 chipping greens and a separate putting greens.
Its a full service golf center.
