Great layout - Back Tees are a challenge

Had a great day on this course. I have played it in very tough weather and today - for the time of the year, it was very good. I recommend this course for good players - it is a real gem. Long par 5's over 570 years and you cannot hit them in two. Greens roll well - course was set up to lay very long and it was alot of fun.

Only negative is not the courses issue - more the players that are playing there. BEND YOUR FAT BUTTS OVER AND FIX YOUR BALL MARK AND ONE OTHER WHILE YOU ARE AT IT!!! I fixed 20 on every hole and I still didn't get to all of them. It is embarrassing to see a really good course like this and how people's golf ediquette is to fixing ball marks and replacing their divots. I would recommend they put some seed on the carts to fix divots.

Staff is Wonderful

There are very nice people running this place. The course is fair but challenging depending on the tees you play from and the wind conditions. The price is right, the only recommendation is adding a tee between the black and silver. I think that would accommodate a broad range of players.

Fast Greens & Fun Course.

We play as a group of 8 golfers normally. We travel a good hour to play the course at least 5-6 times a year. The condition of the course this year with so many golfers was spectacular. The fast greens and the pin positions we very lot of fun!

Love this course

Unfortunately, we only play this course when we have GroupGolfer certificates. The regular price is just outside our normal price range.. with as many value courses around, meaning $30 for 18 including cart, my playing partners are too cheap.
Many ogher courses around are very narrow, so playing a “Links” style course is refreshing. I don’t enjoy a course where I loss six balls a round.. The course is still challenging enough and, for me, a pleasure to play.

Gorgeous and Challenging

Beautiful course with rolling hills, mature trees, natural prairies. Challenging greens and manicured fairways. You will not mind having a high score here because it is so majestic. No driving range. Club house under renovation with friendly staff.
