Improved overall

Haven't played here for 2 years. Overall much improved. The greens are in good shape & not as punitive (too hard & fast for the slope) as before. Still a few funky holes but it was a fun day. I won't wait to play again.

Nice course

First time playing the course. Quite hilly compared to my usual courses in Florida. Several holes have blind spots where the group in front of you can't be seen, as well as the hole layout, but other than that I have no complaints. Greens were excellent, as were the fairways.

good day of golf

It was a good day of golf, despite the fact that it was windy. Unfortunately, it was windy enough that the grounds crew couldn't keep the seed pods from the trees off the greens.
