Slow pace

I like the course because it has good value for the price of you are ok with a slow pace. It is always over booked it seems and you are waiting at every hole to tee off. That is really the only downside. Nice course, kept up, challenging greens as they are all hilly with curves.

Fun to play

Course management really paid attention to customers feedback. I pointed out the opportunity to improve tee box quality. They did it. Fairway is also much better. This course is a little bit of challenge but it is fun to play. I will definitely invite friends to play there.

Only one issue, no forward senior tees. Unless your swing speed is 90 mph or faster you're unfortunately have to play from the ladies tees.

Fairly challenging course...Some open fairways.. a few tight ones..plenty of trees/hazards...well designed.

The maintenance standards have improved but still a few tee boxes need to be even out further.

Pace of play was great- only one bottleneck hole.

First Time Playing

Enjoyed the experience

I'll say from the start that I can't speak for the normal pace of play. I played as a single and had the first tee time at 6 AM. I finished my round in just over two hours, which is normal for me when I do that.

That said, I really enjoyed this course. The young man in the clubhouse was very nice and accommodating, and got me off to a great start. Any staff I encountered on the course, which happens a lot on early morning rounds, let me get past them quickly.

The layout is very good. While short, it puts a premium on being accurate off the tee. That's my guess to why the reviews mention pace all the time. Bad golfers have no business playing here. It's short, but tight, although I found the landing area for my tee shots to be more than fair. The greens were tough. Smallish, and very quick. You need to be below the hole to score well. Most greens slope back to front, so their very receptive. I hit in one trap during the round, and the ball exploded out of the sand as I would have expected. You can tell they are working on improving the conditions. Fairways were really nice. Tees are below average, but again, I could see efforts to make them better. That's all you can ask. They certainly didn't hinder my game.

There's lots of character in the layout. Elevation changes, combined with holes shaped to fit the terrain make for careful decisions on tee shots and approaches. I love courses that make you think about when and how to attack. I'm sure I might have had a different experience had I played in a foursome about the time I was finishing. Likely would have been a five hour round, which I would expect on a tight course on a weekend. For me, the only negative thing I encountered was having to dodge fairway sprinklers all during the round. But that's what's making the course better, and you get what you get at 6 AM. Reminded me of early morning summer rounds from my youth.

I'll definitely play this one again.

Oversold. Maintenance staff everywhere

Had to let two singles pass our twosome when they kept hitting up on us. And we started behind a single walker. They were behind us from the first tee and we were 5 min early. Then there was maintenance staff fixing bunkers/greens from holes 7-13. Not a relaxing or enjoyable round to say the least. Pay a few more bucks elsewhere to have some time to play and not be worried about hitting any workers.
