Leaf pile dump

Large piles of leaves were dumped just short of the 251 yard 18th hole green in a manner that caused maximum difficulties for players. The leaf piles were spread over a large area that was not visible until golfers were close to the green. The chance of finding your own ball around these leaf piles was minimal. I consider this dumping by groundskeepers to be extremely inconsiderate! I believe it would be difficult to cause more problems for golfers on this course than happened that day!

Perfect weather
Used cart

Awesome setting & layout! however...

irrigation/drainage in serious need of adjustment...significant mud/swampy areas to contend with on most holes...and no course intervention to encourage the slow pokes...plenty of shade and flora to enjoy while hurrying up and waiting tho!

Always a pleasure

I really like playing this course. It can get wet and that really factors into your strategy. Hit the greens and you won't have any issues. Easy to say, hard sometimes to do. Don't expect the second cut to give you an inch.
