Great layout!

The layout of the course is great! Conditions are on par with this time of year. Fairways and greens coming in nicely. The conditions of the fairway and green side bunkers need some work. I am sure it’s do to the short staffing most golf courses are experiencing. Otherwise a great experience and very friendly staff. Will definitely be back to play again this season!

Perfect challenge

Me and my dad went. It was great course. Provided us both with a challenge, but not to the point it made playing unfun. They paced out the players nicely so nobody was right on anyones tail. Ranger was extremely friendly. Very helpful friendly staff. All around a great course for some friendly competition. Also some stunning views, lots of wildlife.

Very nice course

The fairways are still brown but have a lot of grass to hit off of. The greens had sand placed on them recently but putted very true and fast. We enjoyed the layout and will be back.

Slack Staff

The PGA so called Professional sat in his office tearing down on a bag of chips idlely staring at his computer screen while the part-time associate fumbled with the check-in computer as the check-in line of paying customers grew. Poor excuse for representation.
