Lost balls

Very challenging course. Hit 8 shots OB, but only lost 5 balls. The tee boxes are not the best, but who really cares about that. Greens are in perfect condition. Water everywhere on the back nine. Don't listen to the negative reviews.

Hard pan fairways and bumpy greens.

Course had great reviews. Clearly I hold course to a higher standard. If you can find a good deal maybe it’s worth it. Conditions were unsatisfactory.

A Favorite

Some of the tee boxes need a little work but most of the fairways are in great shape along with the greens. Plenty of challenging holes where accuracy is a must. Not a big fan of all the houses that are going in but it won’t stop me from playing this course. The restaurant is excellent.

Little rough

Fairways and tee boxes have very little grass. Areas around the green So tight you could putt from 30 to 40 yards off the green. So the conditions were not ideal very tight everywhere with very little grass. With that being said the layout is good, some very tough tea shots greens are challenging they were in good shape. Would definitely be a four-star to four 1/2 star if the grass was in better shape.

Tough course for first time

Lost a dozen balls today and shot a very poor round. Course as ok for winter golf. Pin placement was done by an evil person. 4feet from the front edge on a down slope?

Love the layout..Hate the conditions

We love this track...but not in the winter....fairways are lumpy, most of the greens seem to have several types of grass as they are dormant and they have spotty green areas of another type of grass. This criticism is probably because of winter conditions...but we won't play until late spring...hopefully they get a hold on it!

Course Needs Word

Course is not in good shape. Needs irrigation. Tee boxes and fairways dry and a lot of bare areas. Greens very dry and weeds, although mowed, are popping up. For the money, I don't plan to play again this year. Hopefully next year will see improvement.

PRETTY NEAT OLD LAYOUT

Tightish, undulating greens that require your full attention.. Reasonable length fairway grass. Some holes remind me of Ko'olau on Oahu which was at the turn of the Millennium, had the highest slope rating in all of golf!
