Great course hidden in the high country

This was a great short course. All the greens and fairways were in great shape. The tee boxes were in pretty good shape but a few improvements in progress. Really enjoyed the course, the weather, and the staff. Everyone was super friendly and it was a nice surprise course that I had never played. Would recommend and will definitely be back!

Fun Day All Around

Took my dad for an early round for Father’s Day. It was so nice. With the breeze blowing it almost felt like a fall day. He’s played a lot of courses and plays multiple times a week but he was bragging about how this is one of the nicest courses he’s played. Everything on the course was in excellent condition. The staff is doing a great job keeping this place up. The back to back par 3’s are challenging buts it’s a nice feature to change up the game.

Disappointed.

We felt that the cot was too hight for this course. It was very slow play, they should pair up singles with others. We followig a single guy, and he was hitting 2 or 3 balls. The marshall was nowhere to be found.
We would not come back to this course.

Great short game tune up

This is a great place to tune up your middle / short game.
Outstanding course design and conditioning.
Although to course yardage may seem short the course will require to hit many various shaped shots from challenging distances.
Greens offer a wide variety of approach shots and. Challenges. Putts roll smooth and true.
Overall a great play.
Caddy shack restaurant. Offered good quick food.
Course staff very helpful and friendly
