Top course

If you want to spend some extra money on a course. This is the one. Everything is in tip top shape. Greens, fairways, tee box, gold carts. A-1. The lay was very pleasing to the eye.

Golf course was very nice bunkers could use some sand. Lot of liners showing. Club house was very nice. Love the layout of the course very challenging. Cons the GM of the place a a rude short guy. Very expensive rate for recently punched greens.

Enjoyed the round!

Overall was a great day on the links, pace was excellent ~4hrs, staff was awesome as usual & the course was in decent shape. Couple of opportunity areas -- par 3 tee boxes are a bit chewed up with limited grass & bunkers are in need of reconstruction as they are showing the tarps. Finally, greens were good but still showing some signs of the aeration from last month.

Greens were probably punched a couple of weeks ago so they were a little bumpy and slow. Other than that the course was in great shap especially the sand traps.

Good shape

The course is in good shape but wait another two weeks to play. The greens still have big holes with lots of sand on them from aeration.

Nice landscaping

Some very nice landscaping. Not a lot of hazards. A little confusing finding hole 1 but otherwise a nice course.
