Friendly staff and members

What a great track. Fun and challenging at the same time. Great mix of holes and in beautiful condition considering the rain we have received. I got paired up with a couple members Dave and Chuck and another single who frequents the course. I never know what to expect when getting paired with strangers, but these two were down to earth and a pleasure to play with. The assisted in different aiming points and the breaks on the greens . I will definitely be going back to play again. If this course was close to home, I’d consider joining! Thanks again everyone!!

Monday round

Played on 8/16/21. Course is a fun, but short, layout. Super nice staff. Nice putting/chipping green. They have a range which I was told is a 20 minute walk from the clubhouse. It’s on the middle of the course, which is kind of odd. I treat that as if there isn’t a range at the course since I had 30 minutes before my tee time to warm up and didn’t want to waste 2/3 of my time walking to the range. Course had a big tournament the day before so it was beat up pretty bad. I’d certainly play it again, but, I couldn’t give it more than 3 stars for lack of range accessibility and course conditions. With that being said - can’t really go wrong for $40 to walk 18.

Challenging but fair

Nice course layout that makes you have to hit your shots consistently but doesn’t hurt you to bad if you miss hit a little.

weekend round

Course had some slow play late afternoon on a beautiful Saturday. I am used to playing under 4 hours as a member,. This day would have been more like 5.5hours but I walked off, too late, too slow.

I love this course and have for years. ProShop guys are awesome. Greens are rolling really nice.

Highly Recommend for Mid Handicap or Better

The course is not very long offering a lot of risk/reward on deciding driver vs. hybrid/iron off the tees. The huge greens are very difficult for a first time player of the course. Many greens are elevated with false fronts and/or multiple tiers. Several pin placements made course knowledge required to know what area of the green to be on for a legit putt.
We went out after a member/member tournament so it's possible the pins were intentionally difficult.
All that said, the course is great and I would highly recommend.
HOWEVER, if you are a slow player or high handicapper this course is not for you. The pace of play rules state a 4 hour round should be achieved and for groups that have several players who hit in the high 90s or 100s they will be challenged to keep pace and finish holes.
