The layout of the course is interesting, challenging and features perfectly manicured lush, rolling fairways. You'll be glad you experienced this excellent combination of hole designs and truly great golf. Water comes into play on 10 holes.

Good but not worth the full price

Nice course, very basic layout. Found it overpriced. Convenient location otherwise I'd play somewhere else.

Slow play ruined an otherwise enjoyable day

Title says it all. no marshall’s on the course, waiting on every tee box added about an hour to the round. Great challenging course but impossible to get in a rhythm. If you like long (like really long) challenging courses you will like this course - just be ready to spend up to 5 hours on the course.

Not as good as it used to be

Sad to see the course slip in its condition as it was great the last time I played in March. They have a couple of unrealistic par 3 holes with greens that don't hold as the slopes are just silly to force the ball off the greens.

Great Layout

This course has a fantastic layout, that can be somewhat difficult, with water coming into play on many of the holes. No GPS on the carts, but the did provide a free yardage book. Range balls were extraj$7 for about 40 balls. The course it self, was not in country club shape, but really didn't expect it to be as it is a public course. Play moved nicely throughout the round, and we finished in about 4 hours. I would likely play it again, but wouldn't put on the Must play list by any means. Staff was nice, drinks were a bit high, but in line with what you get in the area. Didn't play well, but enjoyed the day.

Dissapointed

Played here several times. Course layout is incredible, with very interesting, varied and challenging holes. Plays up to 7800 from the tips. The issue was the conditions and pace. Toos us 5 hours. Conditions were awful from the tees to the greens. Hopefully a one off or a seasonal issue. So, a great course, but conditions have to improve in order for me to return.

Tee Box Placements Ruined Round

Due to the laziness of the greenskeeper grass cutting crew the round of golf was not enjoyable at all. There are 5 or 6 different tee locations on this course which are noted on the scorecard and indicated on the tee locations by colored markers. The markers however were not properly located on the tees due it seems like to lazy grass cutting crews. There was not a single hole where all markers were located correctly on the proper tee box. Some holes had 4 markers bunched together on one tee box, many others had a grouping of 2 or 3 markers bunched together. There were permanent brass tee markers on each hole however tee grass tended to hide them and it was a constant seeking them out to find the correct yardage. This caused a slowdown of play which could have been prevented by proper placement of all colored removable markers. When I called to discuss with course management I was advised that none was available, not the course superintendent, not the pro shop manager, no one who was responsible for course management. I was advised by mr phone answerer that at times some tee boxes were not used due to reseeding . This did not appear to be the case as all tees were grassed properly and there was no indication of anything else excepy pure laziness of maintenamce personnel. I paid top dollar to play this course and the round was ruined by incompetent staff and then by not being able to speak to someone in charge to properly address the situation. I hope that other golfers who read this will take notice and either address the issue with staff or merely pass this golfcourse by as there are many other courses in this area to play.

I guess this guy has never heard of offseaon maintenance and saving tee boxes for season. I hate when people talk about things they don't understand. He is just mad because he shot 120
