Great

Right From the 2 ladies at the pro shop checking us in to the 19th hole, I’d have to say that it was a perfect day.

Loved that as a 16 handicap player that I had to manage my way around the course .

The tee boxes ,clubhouse , fairways and greens were emaculate . Fairways were title but the course is laid out so you need to manage your way around . Having the ability to play both fade and draw shots will be helpfull here . The greens are relatively small and guarded with well manicured sand traps and water features . The putting surfaces are smooth and the ball rolls true . Fairways are are nicely cut and the second cut is just high enough that you can still get the club on it . very well kept .will play again

Fun, but Short, Tight, & Dangerous

Shadow Mountain is NOT where to go to hit big, booming drives. There are a few holes where the driver can come out of the bag, but for the most part it’s making sure you are in the fairway - hopefully your own. The holes are very, very close to each other so if you spray the ball, be prepared to yell. Many tees are right next to the small but nice greens you just came off of, so if the players behind you are not skilled, you are in danger. I felt lucky not to get hit on many of the holes. At 5,375 yards from the tips, it’s a very short course. House are in play just about everywhere. I can’t imagine living on this course unless I wanted to collect a lot of golf balls and constantly repair my home from errant shots.

Ready Golf

Played behind groups who clearly do not know what “ready for play means.” Time and again the group ahead parked their carts side by side for several minutes (R & A says 40 seconds) talking and walking in circles...really poor! The
