The course is in great shape. Definitely worth playing , if you are in the area. Plenty of challenging holes with undulating greens.

This course is a great value. It's condition was very good especially considering we have had no precipitation for three months. The only problem was encountered beginning on the second hole. For some unknown reason the starter had let some young boys out as a fivesome. They were having a good time but not playing much golf. We had to finally notify the pro shop. They came out and forced the kids to let people play through. A fivesome should never happen, especially on a busy day. Other than that it was great golf with absolutely no waiting.

We tee'd off about 11:40 AM knowing that a tournament had been held much earlier in the day. We expected some delay from this but learned the tourney had been over for some time so was not responsible for the slow pace. On the front 9 we waited on each hole behind 2 other groups each waiting for their chance to tee off. It was brutally slow. A couple holes into the back nine and we accidentally discovered ( I hit my drive over trees into wrong fairway) the hold up ALL DAY was caused by 1 group who had multiple holes empty in front of them. So heads up, they do not send a marshall around to keep slow players on pace. We played a 5 and 1/2 hour round which was caused by one group. To be fair I have played this great course many times under 4 hours but be aware, you do not have anyone enforcing a steady pace. Fairways, greens, bunkers were all in great shape, some fun holes here and there that will test your fortitude when approaching over bunkers to a protected pin placement. So give them a try but if you are on a tight schedule, be prepared to skip some holes and call it a day if playing behind some weekend warriors.

The course is in very good condition considering the very dry summer we have had. Greens were fast and true. This is a good dry weather course and has just enough water hazards to be interesting. The pace of play was slow which is understandable on a perfect day in the Northwest. They probably could speed things up if they would pair up the twosomes. Overall a good day golfing.

Straight forward course ,fair yet challenging ! Not a lot of bunkers but water must be avoided to put together a good round! Water comes into play on 9 of the holes. They tell me that back in the day it was an area where there was mint farming . Excellent food in the clubhouse ! Mint valley burger! Great staff !

The staff is very friendly and easy to work with. Play was on time even with a large group of high school players on the course. The course is drying out quickly after all the rain we've had and is in much better shape than it was two weeks ago.
