Best when dry

This is a good course, well maintained and well run. However, after rainy days the fairways get soaked from mountain runoffs and we were cart path only, as needed, to protect the course. Best to play this after a few days of no rain.

Expected better

The front nine was bad. I do not believe that Donald Ross would have been involved with the design. The back nine was much better however the 747 yard par 6 17th hole was disappointing. The last 130 yards were uphill !!!
Far too much local knowledge was required. I may return to play it again but it may not be soon.

Great mountain course

My wife and I played this together and it was a great experience.. I played on consecutive days and played well both days. My wife played with me on the 2nd day and we both parade the infamous par 6 17th! It was definitely a highlight

Fun Course

Started well with a friendly greeting from the gentleman at the counter. I definitely needed the map he gave me to find the next hole a couple of times. I really struggled to read the greens, but they all rolled very well. I will definitely play again next time I'm in town! I did manage to birdie the par 6!
