Unfair

We had a 7:40 tee time and they made us walk cuz the water on the course from rain but people with 9am tee time were allowed to use carts. The course did not dry up that significantly in one hour for them to make that decision

Great course

I recently played here for the first time and it was such a great course to play! Played all 18 and played pretty well. Holes are in a great layout with a good mix of difficulties and different par values! Definitely will be back!
