People were lost

We had carts coming Back towards our holes ( 2 groups on different holes). Apparently incapable of following the markings which guide players to the “next hole”….
Then there are the “slow players”… duffers - not golfers.
No rangers presence to alleviate our situation, so our game suffers while the clueless advance their ball forward by 10 / 20 yard increments.
On a good note: . Being on the golf course despite aerated greens, slow players and lost players weren’t enough to spoil our day of golf!

Even in the rain we loved it

Highly recommend this course.
Challenging and beautiful mountain course with a good mix in styles and some well protected holes.
You cannot walk this course; you end up drive 14 miles in your cart!
We drove 75 miles to play there...We'll be back.

Unforgiving

Miss the fairway and you are done. The dense woods are very close the fairways. Take extra balls.

Target mountain golf

Short course under 6K yards from the back tees, but you better hit em’ straight or you’ll be playing provisionals all day. Target golf to the fullest, only hit driver 3 times. Course was in good condition.

Course overview

The clubhouse is nice.
The course is difficult with high grass on each side of the fairway. The course was not maintained as well as it should be. Meaning the grass, divots and some holes around. There has been a lot of rain so things should have been roped off to stop people from riding in specific areas.
Be prepared to ride all over the neighborhood to get from hole to hole. I might have been ok with that except I had just driven 2 hours.

Beautiful course, need a few Wawas along the miles of cart paths

Beauutiful course, short and lots of hills. Decent condition but a bit slow due to lots of lost balls and miles of cart paths between holes.. beers and a few snacks in pro shop but no food to speak of.. I'd play again in a heartbeat.

Staff and course are fantastic

The golf pro, Kevin, was a one man show! He did everything from the pro shop, to the bar, to cart return. Course was in great condition and my friends from Maine loved it. They can’t wait to come back and play it again.

Perfect day 4 18.

Course was undergoing aerating so it was a bit rough today and it must have rained because some holes you had to stay on cart path, no big deal. One of my favorite courses.

Greens

Great course, only thing I didn’t like were the mini greens. A lot of them were way to small for the hole. Hole 16 5 stars awesome view, awesome hole.
