Interesting layout and no two holes are the same. Provides the opportunity to hit every club in the bag. Fun course to play but the greens are extremely difficult due to severe sloping from back to front and inconsistency in speeds.

The course was in great shape considering it is Feb. 22. We finished 18 in 3.5 hrs. even with cart path only rule in effect. Only drawback would be those darn geese! We need to get a boarder collie out there to chase them away.The club manager was very friendly.
