Still Under Rework, but a gem

I always enjoy the beauty of this course. Unfortunately the contractor who was revamping their 18th hole went bankrupt and left job unfinished. Last hole is really played as a temporary par 3.

great greens

Eighteenth hole under repair, greens ar fantastic. Very walkable course. The front seems to be original and the back added on. The course is on a flat area surrounded by forests.

PACE: It was a busy Saturday morning, so that was definitely a factor. I would've liked to have seen some "ready golf" played by the groups ahead.

CONDITIONS: Tees, greens and fairways were all in good shape. Bunkers were really good.
When I played this course (9/3) due to ongoing construction the 10th hole was shortened to a par 4, and the 18th hole is shortened to a par 3. This was my 2nd time playing this course and I'm yet to play the 18th hole as it exists on the scorecard. I hope they can get all that construction completed to open the full course back up.

STAFF: Got us paid and out on the course.

LAYOUT: A good mix of tough and "less tough" (i.e., easy) holes. Par 3s are a good challenge. Some shorter par 4s for big-hitters to feast on. I used a cart this time, but walked in the past. This course is very walkable.

Great all around

Course was in great condition except for a couple of holes going through renovations. Quite possibly the most friendly staff at the clubhouse. Greens in great shape. No complaints.
