Follow the most current reviews and I concur. Once a hidden prize this course is ready for closure. Conditions have deteriorated to nearly unplayable. A course to be avoided at any price.

good layout by Doak, conditioning poor, fairways 10% bald, traps, no sand only dirt and rocks, greens horrible. need to close down course next growing season for restoration, or open a goat ranch. no other rated courses in the same condition.
