Great

Fair ways and greens are great. Bunkers could be better but that’s more on the people who golf here not covering tracks or divots… over all tho a super nice course. Good luck losing your ball here! Club house folks are under informed on any and all of the amenities but overall the golf game itself is awesome!

Worth the drive

Love playing here. Great value, well worth the hour drive. Greens in great shape. Rough is thick like it’s supposed to be. Fairways in good shape with one exception. No sand on carts to fill divots. Lots of large divots that could use filling. Only one other complaint, no ball cleaners. Rain day before. Course wasn’t really wet, but was a little soft here and there. Could have used a ball cleaner every now and then

Nice course

Friendly staff, very well maintained. Great tacos at the taco truck in the parking lot, Nice carts with cushy seats and GPS. Only negative was no water refill stations or bathrooms on the course, but you do go by the clubhouse several times.

Breezy day

Love the course and layout. Could definitely use a little more signage to direct you around the course. You play first six on one side of parking lot, then play 7-9 across lot. Go back across lot to start on 10, then come back to play 14-18 across parking lot again. Course was in great shape. Greens were beautiful. Fairways in good shape, rough was thick but mowed. Over an hour drive from home, will definitely be back.
