Fun course

Fun course, nice people. It's got some tricky holes that if you have not played it before will be a challenge. I will for sure come back.

Alright course to play

Little bit of a drive to play for us. Try and get down to course to play once a year if can't find another course to play for the day. Not our favorite but ok to play

Wind, fescue, doglegs and hills.

When they say hills they mean it. It feels like your always hitting uphill. If you play on a windy day bring extra golf balls. Some very strange hole designs. However, fast greens and decent fairways. Some easy pars and some impossible ones. Not for the beginner.

Enjoyed my round

Harder than average with many steep hills, doglegs, and a few too many blind shots. Beautiful property and friendly staff. Would play again, especially if I lived closer.

Course has some great holes.

All fairways were in great shape as were the greens on the front side. Greens on the back were in tough shape as were most all of the traps. All in all an enjoyable round.

Greens

Greens were so long it was like an elites course fairways. Unable to figure speed of chips and putts. Mowers need to get out there.

could have been better

Had not played the course in a couple years so we decided to play 18 there. We paid for the round on-line so check-in was easy. It was August and you never know what a course will be like in mid-summer. In this case it was in ok shape. Most of the fairways were still green and not baked hard. There were many areas off the fairways that were brown and hard, but that was to be expected. Some of the non-fairway areas around the greens had grass long enough to hide balls which can create delay sand really slow down the round. The green speed varied from hole to hole, and some were a bit shaggy and bumpy. Several of the greens had roped off areas where they had reseeded bare spots. I would have expected the greens to be in better shape at this time of the season. Bunker were not well maintained. They They had been wet, and the sand was packed down. Overall I would play the course again, as long as they keep the senior rate in effect.
