Great course always the most manicured in the area. The carts which are pretty new need adjusting the keep threatening to shut off even when your on the cart path!

Excellent condition and phoenomenal greens.

This course is worth what you pay. Greens are fast, firm and roll very true. Condition of fairway, tee boxes and raps very good. Maintenance staff is ever present and working.

very good course layout and condition

very good course layout and condition. Some open holes for driving on 19-27 holes with some challenging greens . The 10-18 were more narrow and in good condition. Although pace was a bit slow at times and no cart person showed up for the rounds. Would definitely play again and worth the $$ involved :)

Great greens!

Played with my daughter today. This place is always top notch. Greens rolled excellent and whole course looked great. Always busy this time of year but they do a great job moving golfers along . Holes 1-9 are the tightest nine out of 27 holes so be aware of that when you make your tee time.

Excellent well-kept course, good practice facility, amazing head pro. Only knock is the starters can be a little testy and unreasonable, and one marshal in particular was ridiculous, hurrying us up when there were five holes open BEHIND us and we were on pace for nine holes!
