Heard a lot about it and it sure did not disappoint! Gorgeous and well maintained. It was a holiday so it was pretty busy but the pace was still good. Had so much fun we played 9 more holes! Can't wait to go back.

Great course for the price.

I brought a friend from Boston here to play and it was obviously his first time. He was eager to get out and warm up on the driving range. We were surprised at how fast the green were. The pin placement were not at position 1 on all the holes. So the pin placement were that if you hit the ball above the whole, good luck getting it in the hole. However, even shots below the hole ended up going past the hole because the greens were so fast. Other than that, the course is in great condition.

First time in a long time, great conditions!

I have played this course about a dozen or so times over the past several years. Though it had been a while since I last played(3 or 4yrs). Was very pleased with just about everything; updated carts wGPS, greens in excellent shape, fairways and bunkers crisp and fluffy, etc. The staff seems very hospitable, very welcoming and friendly. Practice area hasn’t changed, and is still very nice. The practice greens are indicative of course greens which is excellent in my opinion; for gauging course speed etc. The cart girls make rounds for refreshments, also the carts are equipped with good sand for divots, GPS and score tracking. The restaurant and bar are just as good if not better than it used to be from what I recall. Something different, and maybe it’s just me not having played there in almost 4yrs; front and back nine have been reversed. Having played this course twice in the last two weeks, I actually prefer this new route. Definitely worth the money for this time of year. My only complaint if I had any, would be too many threesomes and foursomes scheduled around the same time. But of a traffic jam getting started, but they allowed us to start on time without issue. Not sure if they were online booked or walk ins, but we had paid for ours online.
