Compared to other courses in the area it’s way above average. Greens were little bumpy today. Zoysia fairways are incredible!

The views are wonderful

It's a great course I have never played in the mountains before. It was a great challenge but so very worth all the effort for sure. I w I'll play this course again before I go back home.

It was a great experience.

The only negative I saw was some of the bunkers had gravel & some better sand was needed in others. I suppose that was what the objective was, to improve bunkers so all was good.

Wet day

Enjoyed my round at General Burnside. Course was wet from morning rain that even held up start of my round. Greens were still rolling true and quick. Fairways had a few wet spots, but not a problem. Staff was very helpful to allow me to get started early. Truly a great golfing experience. well worth the two hour drive. I highly recommend playing this course
