Nice course to be out

This is a challenging course surrounded by mountains. I like the layout. The staff is nice and friendly all the time. I love the restaurant at the resort but it’s closed now due to COVID-19.

The fairways were pretty dry and patchy. The greens were in good shape however. The three players ahead of us were slow and needed to play at a better pace.

Late start

We had a 1218 tee time and when we checked in they said it was 1235. I showed him my paper and he said golf now overbooks a lot and so we have to work you in. Lots of ladies in front of us and it was dark by hole 17.

Busy but well paced, very fast greens

Course is in good condition and the greens are very fast. The course had a lot of players but the pace was fine. Backed up shortly but then got back to normal after a few holes. Would come back for sure.

Hidden gem

This course is one of the most challenging for all level of players. It’s rolling hills, narrow fairways and off camber greens keep you constantly on your toes.

Not Worth the Money

I was very surprised at how badly shaped this course was. I paid 85 which would have been fair if any of the fairways here in playable condition. It seemed like every hole had ground under repair and hardly any good grass to hit off of. I don't mind paying 85 as its pretty average price for a round but i would have taken my money anywhere else for the condition of the course.

Needs help!

Overall course conditions are not great! I appreciate it’s winter conditions but the fairways are a mix of multiple grasses, numerous bare spots and ground under repair areas. The greens are decent but for the average amateur are very quick and pins are in “interesting” locations. Hopefully in the spring the course will recover but it needs focused attention. Pro shop staff is great and helpful.

Grest layout but carts suck.

Layout is amazing but the carts lock up and make you reverse back to carts path. Really annoying. Slowes down on hills and such and makes the experience suck.
