The course was in great shape. The greens were fast. My wife thought the course was a bit long but I liked the length. The fairways were wide and forgiving. An employee met us at the car with a golf cart, loaded our golf bags and gave us great info about the course and hole locations. We really appreciated all of his information. Everyone at the course was very friendly and helpful. A great atmosphere to start your day. Thank You

Course has some interesting holes but mostly old school Muni style course. Greens were much slower on the front, guessing they hadn't cut them when I teed off. Course was in nice shape and a fair price at 45 in May. Biggest complaint is lack of a driving range.

Great day at PDCC. Good course in pretty good shape. Had a wonderful round with locals Mary and Paul, who helped with shots and putting. Fairways and greens in great shape. Edges of course not so much but truly not in play. Staff was great and price was appropriate. Will be back and definitely recommend for those who enjoy a sub 4 hour round.

A player friendly course for all levels. Well maintained with wide fairways and a lot of traps. Some water, but not overwhelming. Greens were fairly fast and very smooth.
