Raub Golf Club
The par 72 18-holes course is a tough course by any standard and it needs to get used to... The First Nine plays to 3,055 yds... With the Second Nine at 3,033 yds, the course plays to a short 6,088 yds from the blue tees... The fairway is fairly maintained (in November 2010) compared to some years ago when I play the course...
As the rough is pretty bad, golfer must played straight on the fairway and any outway balls in the rough will be hard to locate... This is again a thinking course and course management is important for a reasonable score sheet... The course is hilly which makes it more difficult...
Equipment: The club does not have a place for drinks or food... The clubhouse is a bit run down... So are the changing rooms as traffic is not heavy at the club...

A short but pretty tough 18 hole golf course. Fairways are seldom cut, probably twice a month. Greens are cut once a week - front nine on Tuesdays and back nine on Thursdays. The course is only immaculate condition if some bigshot is in town and plans to play there. Bunkers have never been maintained or raked since day one. Somehow the management don't consider the bunkers as part of the course. LOL. Best thing to do is just avoid them.
This is a neat little challenging course. To score well, it requires a good placement off the tee. If you can work the ball right to left off the tee, it sets up for a good angle to approach the greens. Back nines are hilly and shorter compared to the front.
