Tough Hills

First time I played this course. Had been warned by my friend this is a physically challenging course, especially walking because of the fairly steep hills. Lived up to its billing. Hills were challenging in addition to trees along the fairway. Pretty easy to get into trouble if you don’t hit fairly straight. Challenging but fun course to play.

Good course, lots of challenges, tight fairways, small greens and fast, creeks and enough sand. Pretty hilly. So a cart is helpful.

Unknown gem.

I never heard of the course and just wanted a quick golf fix and was so pleasently surprised what a great course it is. Nice range with sandtrap and putting green, Some holes were a little too close together so a wild shot ends up in other fairways so it could be dangerous.Otherwise you had the feeling of playing a 9 hole country club.
