Slow round at 9:30am

The group in front of us was fine, but the two groups in front of them were awful and slow. I am fine with new golfers or whatever, but it took almost 6 hours to play a round that started at 9:30am. Apparently the foursome that was causing the slowdown were friends of the owner so no one could say anything. When I went in to complain, I was kicked out. We even had one of the rangers that works there that couldn't get the course going so.....won't be back!

Another slow day

Tee boxes were okay but need work. Fairways and greens in good condition. Sand traps, except for one, in good condition. That particular trap was considered ground under repair. Beverage cart found us numerous times.
Unfortunately the pace of play had us about 25 minutes behind a normal round.

Beautiful course

Not the longest course, but very challenging if you hit from a level lie other than the tee box you'll be lucky, very hilly. Tight fairways and greens that break way more than they look like. Definitely will visit again.

Elevation and hitting to blind greens.

Loved it. One’s creativity is tested with the elevations and especially the blind greens. All but two sand traps were maintained nicely. What is needed is more separation between tee boxes. As commonly occurs, the par 3 tee boxes need some TLC.
All in all, I look forward to my return.

First time playing

Thoroughly enjoyed the different elevations and blind second shots. Fairways and greens in very good condition. Interestingly the black and silver tees were most often only 10 yards difference. The clubhouse grill and halfway house have a limited menu……..hot dogs and brats. The fairway is not difficult to play out of.
All in all, an enjoyable Saturday afternoon.
Looking forward to playing here again.
