This one is growing on me!

Interesting layout here by the Jedi master (Donald Ross)! A little cramped on the front nine, greens were good, fairways were o.k. (Play winter rules here to avoid the bare spots)! Tee boxes need work! Quite enjoyable for the money! DO NOT PLAY HERE AFTER A WET OR HEAVY RAIN!

Liked the course

I enjoyed playing there, but it was right after a heavy rain and the course was VERY wet which made it play very long. Lots of beautiful holes. I was visiting from out of town and I'd like to play it again under more ideal conditions.

Not too bad

The course itself is confusing. Sometime I had trouble figuring out which direction to hit the ball in and/or where the flag was. There are a few holes that seem to share the same fairway which was a bit frustrating when you had someone playing towards you in the opposite direction. The greens were COVERED in sand to the point it felt like you were playing in a bunker. Overall it was an okay experience. Still had fun regardless of the course conditions. The food at the Green Tee was amazing!

Muddy and Muddy

This course needs so much work it’s hard to imagine what comes first. Bunkers looked as if never raked. Golf balls plug on every other shot. Fairways are like shag carpets! Weird blind shots off many tee boxes some facing towards another tee on a different hole.

Fun course, not too crowded

First off anytime a 4 some can complete 18 under 4 hours I am happy. This course does feature many blind shots and typical of a Mtn course up and downhill approaches. I felt the challenges were fair and course was a cool layout. Definitely a challenging course to play for the first time, with some “local knowledge” you could get around this place pretty well. The Par 6th 17th was worth the the hype and require 3 really solid strikes to get a chance for birdie. The Bentgrass greens were in good shape and rolled very nice with decent speed.

Last night's rain

Very wet conditions complicated the courses usual wet and soggy areas. No roll of ball and several balls plugged. Had to move up a set of Tees to compensate for lost distance.
Tee boxes need some work. Put some seed down and move the markers to let the grass grow out. Or, just put down some sod.

Great first experience at this course

The course was in very good shape. Play was fast to start, but later around #15 we got behind a pack of walkers that slowed play a little. The course was unusual and therefore challenging for me. I had a great day. The staff was great!

Good Value

Played this Saturday and the course is very good. It’s been a wet summer here in the mountains, but the course is holding up pretty well. Gotta pick a dry day to get back out there.
