A real gem at $125

Excellent conditions from tee boxes to the greens. A wide variety of holes with some incredible views on the back side. One weak par 3 but that’s my only gripe (besides not being able to play before 12 noon if you’re not a resort guest). Waited a long time to play here and can’t wait to return. Kudos to the entire team at CVR!!

Back Nine Is Special

Immaculate conditions

My first time playing this course and I was very impressed with the overall course conditions. Very lush, evenly and accurately maintained fairways, rough and greens.
Very hard to find any patch of dirt or poorly maintained grass. Greens were fabulous and extremely consistent. Beautiful surroundings.
I would recommend this course.

Loved it!

Possibly most immaculate course I’ve ever played. Perfect condition. Better than Spyglass. Helpful, friendly starter. Beautiful views with lots of deer and wild turkeys.

Pristine conditions, awesome design

What a course. Awesome layout and design. Perfect conditions. Fast greens. A shorter course that plays more difficult than you think. You have to plan ahead each shot. Very fun and I will definitely be back.
