This is a great course for beginners or if you're just not very good. It's short, most holes are are very wide open. However, there are no challenges. The greens are easy, slow(ish), and in mediocre shape. There's only water on 1 or 2 holes....More

I really enjoy playing this course. It may be because of the Spartan connection initially, but as I walk the course, I'm reminded of how well its laid-out, especially the par threes. Again, its a nice layout, but the course itself needs some work. There...More

It had been 40 years since I played it as a student! I barely remembered many of the holes, but what a great fun course! I was most impressed with the younger players being taught there as a summer clinic as I had to play...More

Forest Akers East Course is basicly flat. The course is in very nice condition. There is some repairs being done. Particularly on the 18th hole. Water comes into play on only one hole, #7. Some sand traps on the course. 4 sets of tees for...More
