Challenging course; Good layout

Really interesting course. Lots of water, undulations and good hole layouts. Several of the holes require you to think about risk-reward so it tests your strategy. Course is in very good condition and the staff are very friendly.

Love this course

Have played here a dozen times. The staff is awesome. They added indoor bays where you can warmup for under $10. This course is not easy but it is very fair. If you don't like water, you best play elsewhere. But the course is always in great shape, the greens are challenging but fair. For you slicers, most of the water is to the right. But it is a very fun course to play and I will always come back here.
