Nice day

Greens and fairways were recently aerated so you got some crazy bounces and rolls on green.

Fun course with amazing views

Course was in good condition. The view from the 10th hole is truly spectacular. The staff was great. The only negative thing is when we were making the turn a group of 4 were teeing off. Groups making the turn shouldn’t have to wait. I was the first tee time out so no one should of been in front of us. Other than that I’d highly recommend playing this track.

Fast, Fun Round

Despite other reviews we found the staff to be pleasant, friendly and happy to have us play their course. The course was far from pristine, the fairways were bumpy and rutted in many areas. Some tee boxes were over grown, full of clover and many of the women's tee boxes were tight, sloped and in some cases bare. The course was not challenging, mostly straight out fairways with 2 or 3 unique holes. The setting is lovely with some picturesque holes overlooking the lake and surrounding mountains. Reasonably priced for it's tourist location and in general a a good day of golf.

Let me just start with no.

I played July 4th ‘22. Pace of play was excellent because most locals probably know to avoid this place. Conditions were 1star at best. Brown. Crunchy. Staff was extremely friendly, though. The pro shop attendant/bartender/starter/ranger/busboy seemed to all be wrapped into 1 persons job, which is strange, but she did her best. She was great. Golf course is in rough shape, i booked by reservation through GolfNow™️ for $35. Had i paid the $67 holiday rate, i honestly would have had a difficult time not scromiting. Course layout is amazeballs. For real, it’s a shame they don’t take care of the place. Again, staff was amazing, and by staff i mean the 1 lady that did everything. Food was good, not great. Also, very confusing main entrance to parking lot/bag drop. I’m not sure about “off course ammenities”, but the parking lot seemed like a good place to meet new people.

Great experience

Doesn’t play quite as short as the card yardage. View from the 10th tee is tough to beat anywhere
