They have actually cleaned it up quite a bit, but still could use some improvement.

This is a hard course to throw. Most of the holes are hardly clear to drive unless you are dead accurate and don't mind trading optimum lines for a cleaner lie in the narrow mown paths. The first three holes are down and back up steep hills with "native prairie grass" clogging the majority of the fairway. The fourth hole is a tree clogged short shot along the dirt path to hole five.
