It's a quality layout that was redesigned and a new nine holes added by Keith Foster in 2003. The layout is more of a links style design with a few scattered trees, a good amount of water and sand along mounded fairways which are wide and forgiving, but bordered with prairie grass. There's 5 sets of tees, the Golds are at 6,365 yards, 130 slope, and a 71.1 course rating.
