Demanding course in good shape. Some fun holes and good views. Part of the course routes around and old quarry, the best holes I think.

Great course. You have ti think on every shot. Must play golf course.

What a gem of a course, too bad I just finally played it after all these years. Highly impressed and will be back soon. 55 bucks is exactly what this course should charge.

The greens are slick. Fees are a bit high. I would play again, if the rates drop.

Really cool utilization of old quarry. Great practice facility. Very cheap for a course of this caliber. Reminds me a little of Chambers Bay in Tacoma, WA.

Great new course.

New holes and layout (July 2010) make this a great public course.

I enjoy this course everytime I play it. I am greatly anticipating the opening of the rest of the Lynx course in 2010! Currently it is well maintained with 9 holes of normal tree-lined fairways and 9 holes of Lynx rolling hills. GOOD TIMES and well designed. Only critisism would be that the rates are a bit steep for a municipal course, but go to golfnow.com for specials.
