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.
