Great Course

This was our first time playing here. It was a great course and very pretty. We played with other 1st time players`.It would have helped if we played with someone who knew the course. Carts don't have GPS and there are some blind shots and it would have helped if we knew where we were hitting.

WOW! What a beautiful layout and condition.

This was such a great course. Greens were fast and true to read. Great fairways. A real challenge if you don't hit straight. Definitely recommend for everyone.

Course is always virtually perfect

I'm not going to leave a lengthy review. No need. Course is always outstanding. Considering the class of the facilities, I find the prices to be fair. And they don't oversubscribe the course with players.

Scratch golfer review

The course was in great shape due to being over seeded a couple weeks ago. A little wet but that’s not gendering the overall condition of the course. The staff and member we played with were very nice. Played from the blacks which were about 7000 yards and ended up being a bit easy but still had challenging holes. Small/skinny greens makes for a ball strikers paradise. Greens rolled amazing and had some good pace. Overall loved the course and will be playing there again before we leave.
