Fun Course, Slow, but Fun

The back 9 was worth the price of admission alone. A bit slow, but the weather was perfect and we had a great time. Price is right too. Enjoy.

First Time Playing

Surprisingly suprised

1. Great customer service
2. Pace of play turned out to be great.. came up on two groups in front of us and the both let us play through
3. A few greens were rough and the greens weren't consistent throughout the round
4. Great layout.. tough long par 4s, and a few short (thank goodness) ones. Lots of doglegs to both sides. Bunkers were turned into ponds (due to the rain the night before). Fairways were in great shape.
5. No beverage carts though (I'm sure due to being a Thurs, but it was very busy and warm so they could have made a mint).
6. Loved the tee box on 14
