Because we were not aware of the course layout and the obstacles ahead that were not visible from various shots we lost a number of balls and luckily also recovered several after a longer than normal search due to the fall leaves obstructing our vision. The course was in beautiful condition however with the exception of the usual fall foliage on the edges.

Beautiful course on a beautiful course

I'll definietly return, although next time I'll have lunch elsewhere. Was not in a rush, but lunch was fair at best and took 2 hours.

Poor end of season conditions

Very disappointing round today .Most par 4 and 5 were blocked off and cart path only. very hard to follow balls if not on fairway need cart path due to thick rough and uneven fairways so cannot see from path. All 3 of us kept losing balls and also found other balls from other golfers they could not find..

Seen better days

Haven't played here in a while. Greens are in great shape but that's about it. Fairways are ok but not mowed or maintained well. 8th hole is now a short par 4, used to be a nice 5, not sure why anyone would shorten a course. Tee boxes forget it, half of them are nothing but dirt, looks like they don't bother moving tee markers at all. $80 is a joke, wouldn't be worth it for half that price.

Nice course, very slow play

Played here twice. Pace of play both times was an issue. Waiting on nearly every shot. Backlogs at the tee boxes.

First Time in 10 Years

My friend and I are not very good golfers but we enjoy playing golf when we can.
The staff was very courteous and friendly.
However the group behind us on the first tee threatened us that they would hit into us if we were slow.
I wish the starter had been around.
For the first three holes we felt rushed.
But after that they never bothered us.

The condition of the course wasn't as good as the one we played last week.
