Great course!

We were paired with a member and it was awesome! Very accommodating and was like we had a personal guide. Everyone was very friendly and they were on top of everyone to make sure the play was running smoothly! Definitely a must play coarse!

Loved it

First time playing, course was in great shape with an entertaining layout. Greens were great, medium speed with no issues.

Staff was very friendly. They clearly run a tight ship here. Very satisfied.

One of the best

Awesome course absolutely enjoyed this only problem we were unfortunate to have a husband and wife ahead of us who thought it a good idea to coach his wife while we were all standing and waiting behind
As far as golf goes fantastic challenge really need to know where to place your shots or trouble will find you single figure handicap shouldn’t play less than blue

Great First Round

The course in phenomenal shape. A tad slow on the front 9, but seemed to split tee times up between the other two courses on the back which sped up play significantly. Will certainly come back for more rounds in the future.

Overpriced for condition of fairways and aerated greens.

Overpriced for the condition of the fairways and aerated greens. Booked through golf now and it was not listed on the site. I wouldn't have played had I known and would advise everyone to call before booking this course to check on the greens and fairways.
