    Summary:
    Actually, I think the folks on this site are a little too harsh. If they knew the background of this course, they might appreciate it more. It was a course that was built by PB Dye, Pete Dye's son, on a strict budget to replace the dump of a 9 hole course they used to have and called a "country club". This course is infinitely better than the old course. For the cost, it's hard to beat. $22 including cart? Where are you going to play a Dye course that cheaply?
    Yes, I agree that they have changed his design a little, removing some of the waste bunkers and allowing grass to grow into them as rough. But it doesn't truly effect the design though it does the look. I have to admit it changed #2, #12 and #14 when they got rid of the waste areas. But this is a municipal course that has had some "political" troubles by the city. It was built to enhance standard of living in El Reno area. Can't help that most people there seem to have a small town, rural mentality. This could be a peach of a course and it comes close. Also, famous tornado that hit El Reno airport and destroyed terminal building there, also hurt this course. I think they have done a fine job maintaining it on the budget they have and with the limited play they get. Very undulating greens; great variety of holes from reacheable par 5's to blind shots to greens on some. Course is fairly wide open but it definitely has hazards in play.

    Customer Service:
    Fairly plebian. They are short handed at clubhouse (yes, it's a mobile home building). Usually one person runs counter and snack bar. Golf carts are gas; electric would be quieter but there are some hills to climb around course, so perhaps they believed they would be better carts for area. Adequate practice facilities.

    Similar Courses Played:
    This is a poor man's Dye course. Some railroad ties used, but tend to be a little overgrown with grass. No big deep pot bunkers and they removed waste area bunkers. But greens are undulating; not simple flat surfaces.

    Summary:
    Could there be anymore inmate labor around the golf course? I know it is cheap labor, but to walk into a mobile home clubhouse and see 8 inmates eating baloney sandwiches is quite disconcerting. Course is in about as good a shape as could be expected. Nothing spectacular. When first opened it had the best greens of anywhere in Oklahoma.

    Customer Service:
    Not much, but what can you expect from something in El Reno.

    Summary:
    Only the second time I have played this course. It has an interesting layout, but needs work.

    Customer Service:
    Non-existent. Club house is a mobil home, and no one in the bar/grill to server food at 8:30 AM.

    Reviewed by: Landon , Scratch Golfer

    Summary:
    Course was really nice when it first opened. It is run down now, and needs a lot of work. They let a couple of sand bunkers turn to grass bunkers. The layout could be really great, but needs lot of work. Front nine plays through some hills and slight trees, with some water. The back nine is more of a links type layout. The wind always blows at least 15 mph and often blows 25 or more. Not a fun course to play but definately challenging.

    Customer Service:
    is ok, not the best. clubhouse is a mobile home....
