Course design, construction and maintenance is undertaken by the owners, extended family and friends. Bent-grass greens, bluegrass and fescue fairways and tees are used throughout. It is--and always will be--a work of love in progress (both of the land and the game). We minimize pesticide and herbicide to enable as many people as possible to enjoy the course without fear of risk.
The course is currently nine holes, unused portions farmed in a corn/soybean rotation, or left fallow in tall grasses. There is room for 18. We wrestle with the notion of expansion. Can it be done without violating the core simplicity of what we are attempting to accomplish? Can we continue to provide family affordable golf if we do so? Some tell us that 9 holes isn't really a golf course. Some think of home built, country tracks as "pitch and putt" sites. Usually those same people come into the clubhouse muttering, "This place was way more than I expected."
