Beautiful Course

Course was in great shape. The only issue was the pace of play. Never saw a ranger on course to speed up play was my only complaint.

SLOW!!!!!

Nice course design with a great mix of holes. Unfortunately the pace of play is very slow out there. Waited 5-7 minutes on every tee. Many of the holes we had 4 groups on the same hole. Called the clubhouse 5 holes in and they did nothing. After 14 holes we called it and found a group of 5 holding up the whole course.

Pace of play

Great course- great layout- poor pace of play. No ranger on the course led to a backup on hole 3 that lasted throughout the round

Course was in pretty nice shape. Pace of play for a Thursday morning tee time was painfully slow- 4:40.
