Nice layout above average conditions

The check in system is easy, purchased my single player tee time online at Golf Now and went straight to the range for complementary balls and waited for the starter to announce my 1:52 teatime by name and which nine. Played with three other singles, course was in good condition, pace was just a little over four hours, could have been better. Rangers present and checking pace. I would definitely return to this course due to above average conditions and playability.

Staff made the experience special and the greens rolled perfectly. The layout is good but could only get in 11 holes due to the late tee time. I would recommend this course and certainly play it again.

hole 19-27 vs 1-9...

We enjoyed the round but, I was disappointed that 1-9 was way better shape and harder than 19-27. I guess members uses the 10-18, so no clue on the 1 -18 experience! Didn't see a ranger out on the course, so the group in front of us wasn't pushed to stay with group in front of them. I will try again & hope one day be able to play the 10-18 holes...
