Little pricey for course conditions.

Rough cart paths, bad tee boxes. Friendly staff and a good , challenging course layout!

Tough but fair

The course overall was in great condition and the staff was friendly and accommodating. The length makes use of all your clubs especially for me and we only played from the whites. Its still 6600 yards from those tees. The greens were in terrific shape but the slope and pin locations make them very challenging. It has a practice range and a putting green that closely matches the speed on the course- didn't help me much. The tee boxes and cart paths are in rough shape as the only real drawbacks. Highly recommended

Okay

Decent lay-out but the t boxes are absolutely atrocious. Fix that and its a pretty good track.

Needs work

You get what you pay for... I've played this course many times throughout the years and not much has changed.
It's a tough track with no senior tees, and you will get many par 4's around 400 yards. Also, it seems a number of trees (now) could be removed to make this track easier. Greens were nice but it seemed like every tee box was a wreck / uneven.

Great course - Good value

Have played here many times and it is always challenging and enjoyable. Overall, its in decent shape, the golf cart paths are rough and off the fairway can be a real adventure. The greens are terrific , roll true with good pace. They have a nice putting practice area and driving range. A nice mix of tough and manageable holes. Well worth the time.
