Come with friends

The course is challenging to the point of being just a bit too much for an average player like myself to have a good time. The staff are initially friendly but are quick to become irritated if you appear to be unfamiliar with all their rules. My golfing is catch as catch can so I usually rely on being paired up with strangers. Two of the three times that has happened I found at least one person in our foursome a bit of a twit.I have many choices for golfing in my area so I doubt if I'll be back here anytime soon but if I do I'll be sure to come with three other players I already know

Great Course,great staff just dont get behind the twenty something crowd.

Oh no is what I say when I see the twenty somethings. No respect of others. They show up two minutes before their tee time,take their time teeing off ,hit the ball all over the course. If they're not there you can have a great time. The course is really nice.

Every time that I have played here, it's been great.

I really like this golf course. The whole courses slopes down toward the main road. The conditions are always good.

My least favorite hole here, #4. Play it smart.

Give this course a try.

Nice layout, good conditions and pace

The course was in very good to excellent condition with the exception of some tee boxes. A few of the greens have some steep slopes, so local knowledge of where to aim can be helpful. Nice elevation changes but no blind shots. Definitely a good value. Played in just over 4 hours on a Saturday with perfect weather.
