If Someone Was Looking To Golf In The Area, Why Should They Play Your Course?
Anybody looking to sneak out for a quick nine will love this course. The greens are true and fast. Play at your own pace. Plus, the price is right!
What Tips or Local Knowledge Would You Provide To Help Them Score Better At Your Course?
Pay attention to the distance to the creek off of the tee box and keeping it in the fairway on the first 3 holes is must.

The most talked about hole on the course is the last one, number 9. The par 5 plays 570 yards from the blue and 510 from the white.

Number 5, being a shorter par 3, is a favorite. Although it looks like it should be fairly easy, pay attention to the pin placement. Be careful with your club selection and keep an eye on the wind, you don't want to go long and be out of bounds on this par 3.
