If you build it...

If you build it, they will come. This course, and the anchoring casino, is literally in the middle of nowhere. But every aspect of the casino, hotel, and golf course are first rate. The clubhouse rivals any private course that I've visited. They outdid themselves in every aspect of this venue. I can't help but put this in the same category as Ram's Hill, another golf course in the middle of nowhere but is on the Golf Digest Top 50 list. It's pricey for being out there so far but worth the trip. Don't miss out on this one, it is an excellent track in outstanding condition.

Very scenic

This course puts you back to nature. It’s beautiful and fun and challenging. It’s mental therapy. There are grip it and rip it holes and holes that you have to think and be creative. A blast to play ! Lots of enjoyment deer to see. A fun factor of 10! I’ll be playing this course as long as I’m taking in oxygen

A bit wet

They're over watering a bit so there's a lot of very wet spots in the fairways. Overall the course was in good shape. Greens are nice and rolling about 10.5.
