worst course I've played in the valley

Hard to imagine a country club course in worse condition. The fairways were dreadful--clumps of grass (not well mowed) and numerous bare spots. The greens were passable, but not excellent. Edges of fairways were thick making it hard to find balls. The cart paths were full of weeds and generally unkept. Clearly not worth $100 a round. The whole place looked dated and in need of serious upgrades. We won't be back.

Don’t waste your money

Course was in very poor condition. Fairways were especially bad and overall poorly manicured. No beverage cart was a bummer.

Cut the grass!!

Right off the fairway, you get 4-6 inch grass. Spent way too much time looking for balls. Course has a lot of blind shots but no gps in the cart. Very hilly course, can’t laser the green, no gps in the cart just guessing distances all day.

Beautiful Course Great Design

Every hole is a different setup requiring every type of shot and club, makes return play just as challenging as the first
Course rough is severe my partner lost two balls although we saw where they landed. Some fairways need attention. Greens are great roll true and fast

Don’t waste your money this year wait until the fall 2022

The course is in such bad shape this year it’s not worth playing. The fairways are bare with no grass in at least 35% of the fairways and the other grass is too thin to hold a ball up. The rough is in terrible shape (too long and dead spots). The bunkers are very muddy.

The greens are in good shape still on the slower side but ok.

Staff are great.

Nice course

This is a bigger course than most in the valley. Lots of wide forgiving fairways. Plenty of bunkers. Greens were odd-shaped and medium speed. Fairways in good shape, but the rough is a bit clumpy.

Very Disappointed

Staff was nice, but course was in terrible condition. Rye fairways and rough was spotted. Greens we’re slow as molasses.
Use to be in better shape, heard new owner has it and over half its members left.
I’m a Golf Digest Panelist and I rate golf courses, so I’m not just saying something that I don’t know.

Fairways and rough need work

The greens were in good shape. Not so for the fairways and rough. Lots of bare spots in the fairways and high dense grass/weeds in the rough. For much of the round we played behind a sevensome.

Course is beautiful BUT

If you just want to take lots of pictures and enjoy the scenery this is your course. However, don’t play this course if you’re not with a local or have never played here before. The normal rough is at least 4 inches long and slows down play extremely. There are tons of blind shots and if you aim at the flag the are large hidden rough/hazard areas of thick 18” long grassy, weedy mess. If you hit there don’t bother looking. I am sure this is a course I will leave of my list when I return to the valley.
