Diamond in the rough.

A postcard view at every new hole.
My golf GPS would not work here. That sucked.

2nd best score of my life though. It was fun to play.

Little slow got behind to groups with small children learning to play so it took 10/15 minutes to tee off on every hole after the 3rd… but hey they paid to play too… so all in all it was a great day!

We enjoyed this nice course

The front nine is fairly easy. The back nine has blind shots and very hilly on holes #14 and #16. Many walkers were out, but they did allow players with carts to play through in my case anyway. The greens were nice. It is a course that can make you feel good shooting a round in the 70's.

Fun course

Even though they were upgrading sprinkler system, course was in good shape. Friendly check in and thoroughly explained how the construction will affect our round. Will definitely play this course again!

Slow Play

Need Ranger to regulate pace of play. Quit after 9 holes because course was so backed up and play so slow.
