"description of course" very well put...i like to take all into consideration when i post a review. etc. i am greens keeper for cascade but realy taloali is my favorite around the salem area. sure wish you and the lil lady would come south sometime and let me play tour guide. awesome thing is there is a bit of everything here and there all close. yeah cascade is wide open but the tech part is playing the wind. then 10mins away is woodmansse and its all tech mostly all woods and shorter. then 10 min from there kieizer rapids, big holes water trees alot of both but still a bit thick and messy<disc eater>. 15min away is taloali, big old grouth and thick ground cover but big clean open fairways and tight tech holes. this course i believe is the gem of the courses in salem cause it has it all as far as tech. and good parking, bathrooms, never ever any po po.
