Whispering Willows

Well kept course and enjoyable to play. Some what challenging and need some accuracy off the tee boxes on certain holes.
Would play again.

Good Course

Course was a little busy but not surprised because it is a holiday weekend. Need more sand in the sand traps. Overall an enjoyable round.

Only issue, and this probably shows my age, no where to clean my soft spikes. Had to stand in soft mud in a trap. Came out with mud caked on my spikes. Was right next to the clubhouse but none were available. And staff didn't think they had one.

Still grea after all these years

I last played here in the 1980s and had forgotten how pleased it was. Although the amenates have been been the subject of significant and carefully considered updating the course has been preserved and has remained a fine combination of challenging but makeable holes. All told a very pleasurable afternoon’s golf.
