This hilly 18-hole course is considered one of the best public owned corses in the district. It's also the only golf course in the city with water hazards.
This course is not for the faint of heart as it contains two 500+ yard par-5s. However the course does offer Family Tees that do offer some relief for beginner players. The Course can be played in 9 or 18 holes.
