    »LaVista Falls Golf Course

    Do not let this par 31, executive course fool you. The fairways are long, totaling 2200 yards. Even strong drives do not guarantee a good score because the greens may be more challenging than they appear. A putting area is available to help players prepare for the round, but there is no driving range. Inexpensive greens fees make this course stand out.

    »Johnny Goodman Golf Course

    If you love to work on your short game, this course is for you. Long fairways give way to greens that prove challenging to even the best putters.

An on-site putting green and driving range make warm-ups easy. No credit cards are accepted.
