    Duckers Lake has a little bit of something for everyone. The course is challenging. The scenery is nice. The air is fresh and warm (April through November). The beer at the air-conditioned bar is cold and refreshing. The venue is about 10 years old (2005) with a brand new club house and bar/grill to finish off the round.

    The fairways are zoysia grass with bent grass greens. There are a lot of elevation changes on the course so club selection can be tricky. Several of the holes are doglegs with no sign of the green from the tee.
    The course plays a short 5200 yards if you like or you can use the back tees for 6400 yards. It is not a really long course but the hilly terrain warrants a cart.
    Water and sand traps are a hazard on many holes. Mature trees girdling the fairway make shot control a necessity. The rough is not bad but the low tree branches means that the best you can hope for from the deep rough is a punch shot.

    For $25 you can get a good three hours of exercise and lots of clean, fresh air and probably a nice tan (remember to wear a hat).

    The driving range cost $5 a bucket. The practice green is free.
