Excellent track!

Lots to see here. Greens were a bit firm requiring precision shots to stay close. The scenery is amazing and the course is exceptionally manicured. Changes in elevation provide challenges to club selection. Already rebooked and can’t wait for the weekend!

Never go on a Sunday

Course was in amazing shape!!! Tough course that makes you think. A bunch of 3 somes in front of us that played at the speed of a 5 some. No one came out to push them along. Only saw the cart girl once and it was on the 15th. Didn’t even play 17 or 18 because it was so slow.

Outstanding Shape!

Given the rain we had the course was in tip top shape. Yes there are some quirky holes but I'll take quirky if the fairways, greens & tees are in great shape and they were in great shape. Highly recommend!!

Sloooow

Don't expect any less than a 5.5 hour round. No ranger on the course and holes were extremely backed up. Made it thru 14 holes in 4.5 hours and called it quits just before dark. 5 groups on par 3 12th a one time. Need to have a ranger out there.

Great course but too many blind shots

Course was in great shape. Tee boxes, fairways, and greens were all fast and firm. Greens were super fast, but rolled true. Very difficult to get the ball to hold the greens on approach shots, especially since many were blind shots to the green. I would recommend that the course post yellow direction aid flags to help with blind shots. Definitely a course that you need to play frequently to know where to hit the ball. Very challenging if you don't play there often. Staff were very friendly on the course, in Golf Shop, and in the Tavern.
