11yrs of rust

A great course to fall back in love with the game I love. Challenging set up, well maintained, super friendly staff and just a perfect day. Walked the back 9 and played in an hour 45.

Best Views in the area

Being a Donald Ross course, it’s a links course with plenty of ups and downs. Absolutely loved the view and will definitely play again.

Well maintained and great value

We played at 630 am and a lot of workers were still out, but they are doing a great job keeping the course looking good. Friendly staff, some challenging holes. I also hit my first and only hole in one here on the 9th hole.

Never Finished zRound

Arriving at 10th hole we were told we would have to wait for all of the men"s league players to tee off before we could tee off. Looked like we would have to wait well over an hour so we left very disappointed.

Forgiving Fairways

The course is challenging but forgiving. The course has many hazards to make it difficult when you miss the fairway but is open enough to recover from an errant shot.
