Enjoyable time for all ages, there are 2 - 18 hole courses one is kid friendly and one for the rest of us. Though, anyone can enjoy either one. Been here since early 1930's so a great time for everyone!

Love that they were playing 80's music while there. Not a lot of bells and whistles, could use some updates. Like the creek that runs in the back of the courses.

Course has 2 sides...one a moving obstacle and the other a scenic course. Did both sides for $10/pp. Great price, well kept course and many newly done holes. Definitely worth playing!
