Perfect October golf!

Let me state that my only complaint for golfing today was the pace of play. Me and my buddy, who like to play 2.5-3 hour golf got behind a 4-some group who wouldn’t allow us to pass. This being our first time here, we didn’t want to skip any holes. So our game ended up being just short of 4.5 hours but the conditions were perfect, the course layout was beautiful, and had one amazing game.

Good Value

Solid course. Some short but challenging holes with tough greens. Pace of play could be better moderated by rangers.

The course setup does not correspond to the published card. Only 2 sets of tees. Intermediate tees(senior tees) are not in place, even though most holes would allow it. Our group of 44 golfers(men and women; ages between 35 and 80) can not play a somewhat fair. team event from only 2 tee boxes. . We shared the course that day with another group. 25 to 45 year old men.They were disrespectful to the course, the game of golf and other golfers. We will not be back!!

Great Course at even better price

Went here Labor Day on way home. Payed a great price with a hot deal to play $18. Talked to some gentlemen who played with us that were locals and they said the the course allows Veterans to play for $15 dollars. Drinks and food are a great price and the course condition was great. The gentlemen said the course recently put a lot of work into redoing greens bunkers and cart paths! Over a 9.5/10 course!
