Great challenge

This course is a great challenge for a better player. If you are a 20+ handicap, play from the forward tees or you will be frustrated
Course in great shape except the old fairway bunkers that have been neglected. Either fill them with grass or sand.
Bring lots of balls!
Definitely a great course to play

A very challenging course!

This is a course for better players only. Conditions are quite good (except fairway bunkers that are dirt and weeds only). The long carries over rough are too challenging for most players. The rough is too high to see over! It needs to be cut back! Also the GPS on the carts are off by at least +/- 10 yards and should be recalibrated. My Garmin watch which I use elsewhere confirmed this.
If you are not a single digit handicapper, bring lots of balls!! For better players, a good challenge!

fairway bunkers?

The premium conditions and difficult but good course design and construction are fair for the price. But the fairway bunkers are partially overgrown, and I didn't consider them playable. How could I not have been somehow inform about this before a few holes into the round? This was especially unpleasant as it was my first time through and I couldn't see where the bunkers were originally from the tee boxes. Would I have been there had I known?

All the crap between tee box and fairway detracts from a normal game. Not everyone is a scratch folfey. Nice course but I won’t be back

Great experience

This was my first round here and it was a great experience. It’s pretty tight with some intimidating tee shots but it’s not a long course so balances out nice. The course is very well maintained and has some beautiful views and design features. If you struggle to hit it straight bring lots of balls! Played the back tees (blue) and shot 79 (I’m a 10 hdcp) looking forward to playing again!

Great Course

This course offered spectacular scenery and was well worth the cost of green fees. Very challenging with the amount of water around the course. Be prepared to donate a number of golf balls to the water and if you are only slightly off the fairway your ball may be surrounded by an abundance of poison ivy. I would be happy to play the course again.

great setup

First time there, was not disappointed. Really makes you think about what club to use. Long Par 3's which make this course challenging.

Where’s the marshal?

Very slow group in front of us holding up us a groups behind us. When we asked them to speed up play they slowed down even more. Very selfish!!
Other than that, excellent course and nice day. I’ll be back.

Gonna lose a lot of balls

Poison ivy around a lot of the end and tough if you’re a 15+ handicap. Otherwise one of the nicer places I’ve played.
