    Fairways are always in bad shape as well as the greens. No body repairs divots in fairways or ball marks on the greens. The lack of cart paths lead to people driving too close to the greens.

    There are a couple of unique holes out here. The problem with the course is not so much the design or anything of that nature. It is the fact that it is unkept and the people that play the course abuse it, and it is a damn shame.

    There was a time when this course was what Paul Gabriel had designed. Stanley Meyer the assistant to Paul and the brother of Dorothy Gabriel (Meyer) took over after Paul Gabriel's untimely demise. For 30 plus years the Meyer family kept this course the way Mr. Gabriel intended it to be. Improvements were made but the design held firm. During that period of time a meticulous dedication to the course and its grounds endured. Cloverleaf was basic and easy but many golfers were there before sunrise to tee off.

    I really love Cloverleaf Golf Course. The greens are well-kept as are the fairways. There are some challenging holes, but the course can be played by beginners as well as advanced golfers. The layout is really beautiful with many mature trees, rolling hills, and a few ponds. The bunkers are strategically placed and make hitting the greens a challenge.
