  • This course is both challenging and comfortable at the same time. But first a side note: it's under new ownership- I believe either the city of T or C or Elephant Butts have taken over so it would considered a municipal course. Nevertheless it's still the same layout. The only question is whether the course upkeep will remain at the same previous high standard. There are 5 tee boxes to tee off from depending on your skill level. Whichever you choose you still must figure out distance to your landing area and be able to hit the right club to that target. For sure length is NOT the priority. This is a "thinkers" golf course. On many holes you cannot see the green, but must navigate a dog leg correctly before your approach. I have personally played the entire course from the whites with just irons. This course is both fun and frustrating. (Bring 2 extra sleeves of balls). If you're a golf this course.!
  • Had steak done medium, steamed veggies, baked potato, and salad for dinner. Also the margarita was top shelf!
