Really enjoyed it!

We played as a twosome, behind a twosome that was following a foursome, but the pace was fine and we finished in under 4 hrs.

Enjoyed the layout, the staff was all very friendly, and after a rather chilly start it turned out to be a beautiful day.

A few weeds on the greens (which we saw at Gulf Shores also), and a few bare areas and hard tee boxes, but overall the course was in good shape. The greens held shots well and rolled pretty nicely for the most part. The course is short, and not terribly punitive, but many of the greens are small so bring your accurate iron game!

This one is on my short list for future visits.

Pleasant experience

One nine hard and fast, other pretty normal. Greens fast but true, held fairly well for as firm as they are.
