We played a few years back, and decided to stop in and play it again - and are glad we did. Course was in great shape, fairways to greens. Really enjoyed the variety of tee and approach shots, and will all greens in mountain areas, reading breaks is always a fun challenge. All the staff was pleasant. However, given the hot day, the beverage cart person could have come by a bit more frequently.

A mix of the North and South. Views are beatiful and the course was in great shape. Should have had a hole layout book as many of the holes with the elevation changes and doglegs present hidden challenges.
